Film - What’s Old Is New Again
Pete Rezac has been steadily reintroducing film into his everyday work flow over the past few years. Many photographers will tell you that the experience with a portrait studio is one of the main ways to separate yourself from the competition. "I too believe in that school of thought, and working with the 4x5 and soon 8x10 view cameras provide that unique experience along with the various medium format cameras I use to create my work as well. 'Imagine having your picture created with the same camera that once photographed Marilyn Monroe?' Now that’s an experience and a story to think about."
Pete will discuss the various equipment he uses to create film based images from the types of cameras (that can still be had for very little investment) to how he processes his film at home and then scan for retouching and sending to the lab for printing. He will answer the questions about cost, blinks, how to establish exposure, and all questions regarding silver based photography. Pete will explain how working with film has made him a better photographer, show results of competition images that were shot on film and ultimately landed in the PPA Loan Collection.
There is a renewed interest in working with analog amongst many creative disciplines and we are seeing a resurgence in the craft of photography as well. Pete's program is aimed to answer questions and inspire organization photographers who may be interested in adding silver based photography back into their tool kit and looking for a different experience to provide their clients as well as themselves as a photographer.
