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 fourth and final workshop sees participants reviewing their printed 35mm images from the previous workshop and then as a group work out how they would like them displayed on board the M.33. The group would write, print & mount information panels and then hang their exhibition on-board the ship. The group would then open their exhibition and greet visitors, explain the project & their work, etc.
Only 12 places are available on each workshop and places (and materials) 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.
