Strong Island Media working with The National Museum of the Royal Navy present a new photography project focusing on the historic WWI ship HMS M.33, located at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Over a series of four half-day workshops participants will learn about the basics of photography, the ship, archive images from WWI, how to shoot & hand develop 35mm film and then the creation of a final exhibition on board the M.33 of the images created during the project. The M.33 Photography Project takes place over Thursday morning/early afternoon workshops (from 10am to 2pm) throughout October & November 2016.
This second workshop looks at how images of the M.33 through the years help to tell a story. Participants will first look at a series of historical WWI archive images and look at the differences they have aesthetically to today, considering the techniques and cameras used, film, developing, etc. The participants will then explore the M.33 with these images in mind and to also find their favourite views and object on board ship too. These digital images will then be related back to the original archive images and be prepared for the following workshop 3.
Only 12 places are available on each workshop and places are FREE thanks to the NMRN.
The four workshops are planned to take photographers, from beginner to experienced, from improving camera skills all the way to being part of the exhibition at the end so it would be great if participants could book on to every workshop and take part in the project all the way through, but this isn't necessary and workshops can be booked individually.
Strong Island Media have been delivering photography workshops for 5 years and in the last 18 months run over 30 different 'Photography Walkshops' in and around Portsmouth for photographers of all ages and abilities.
