Three day workshop, a tribute to Ansel Adams!
Ansel Adams was one of the greatest masters of photography. Our workshop will celebrate his vision and passion for photography and environment. We will go to the edge of a virgin forrest where no man has ever cut a tree or shot an animal. We will lodge in a cottage, eat, drink, sleep and live photography for a weekend. In the evening we will have presentations and cook a dinner under bone fire.
The workshop is open for maximum six people (plus assistants). At our disposal we will have many cameras, from large format Linhof 5×7″ and ShenHao 4×5″, two medium format cameras Mamiya C330, format 6×6 and Fuji GSW 690 III, format 6×9 and two 35mm . Each participant will receive one 35mm film, two rolls of 120 film and six sheets of films for large format cameras. In the cottage we will develop films and make some photographs from roll films and contact copies from large format film sheets. Then we will tone the prints with selenium and sulphide toners.
At this workshop you can expect an adventure in fabulous landscape with uncomfortable Land Rover from 1972, learning how to use analogue large format and middle format cameras, learning how to use a light meter and spot meter, learning Ansel Adams’s Zone system, how to develop a film and a photograph. This is a perfect workshop to get familiar with the basics of analogue film photography.
The workshop will be supported by Nikon Slovenia, so we will have also the latest Nikon cameras and lenses at our disposal, so it’s legal to bring your digital cameras. I will show you how I make my huge panoramic photographs, from photographing to post-processing.
Price is 250 EUR and that includes films, cameras, lodging and food. Lodging is literally lodging in a lodge so it’s not the most comfortable option, but comfort is overrated anyhow. Nevertheless we have few additional options available. Additional discount for participants younger then 26 years and for local photographers.

The workshop is organised together with museum Dolenjski muzej.
