Interested In Film Photography?

Classes Coming Spring of 2024!

Looking for something to do in Minot, North Dakota? Spring of 2024 Blackfyre Studios will be offering film photography classes. These sessions will be done on the streets and in the wild of the city. We will learn as a group by shooting at different locations. This is meant for anyone interested in learning a new skill while meeting others with the same interest. Classes will be fun and judgement free where the only goal is to learn and create art, and maybe make some new friends in the process.

35mm Film Cameras

 Class Includes Use of Camera, 36 exposures per class and Developing.

Just like the comeback of Vinyl records, Film Photography is making an amazing resurgence. Vintage camera prices have steadily increased by 15% to 20% over the past few years. Event and Wedding photographers have also started offering packages that include film photography.

This class consists of four 3-hour sessions that will teach the student how to use a fully manual 35mm SLR Camera. The cameras we will be using have no built in color sensors, no automation, no auto focus. Each class we will head to a different area of Minot and learn while having a great time taking photographs as a group. At the end of each class the film will be turned in. I will then have the film developed and ready for review at the beginning of the next class.

Polaroid 600

 Class Includes Use of Camera and 16 Photographs

For decades the Polaroid Instant Camera was a staple in homes across America and the world. Birthday parties, weddings, first days of school, along with so many other moments were captured using these cameras giving the memories that nostalgic 80's and 90's look that has become so recognizable.

This is a one time 2 hour class for those interested in learning how to use or reuse one of these legendary cameras. The class starts with an introduction to the camera and some general tips to maximize your images. We will then head out on a photography adventure in the downtown. The class ends with a review of the images captured and discussion on what to look for when buying one of these vintage cameras and the Pro's and Con's of buying vintage over new.
