We will also be giving hands on instruction on shooting film as well for anyone looking to branch into the medium.
FILM OR DIGITAL, DOES IT MATTER?
Absolutely not! You are welcome to shoot any format you desire or why not both? We will have a few extra film cameras as well should you like to try it out.
