Why Shoot Film with Rob Irving

Why Shoot Film

Join Robert Irving for a workshop on how shooting film can inform and improve your digital photography workflow. Analogue photography requires a higher level of intention and focus before taking a photograph, which can positively impact your digital workflow. In this workshop, you’ll learn how the skills developed through shooting film can translate to digital photography and how a more considered approach can make you a better photographer. Don’t miss this chance to explore the world of analogue photography and elevate your digital skills.


In this workshop, you will learn the following: 

  • The fundamental differences between capturing images on film and digital, while understanding that photography is photography regardless of the medium
  • How film slows us down and encourages us to create each image more deliberately
  • The importance of pre-visualizing the intended capture, a crucial skill when shooting film that can inform our digital photography
  • The concept of the decisive moment and how to anticipate the flow of a given situation
  • The characteristics of film as a recording medium and what’s important to understand
  • The differences between film and digital cameras
  • Techniques for post-processing analogue images digitally.
  • The added benefits of shooting analogue, including the mindfulness it can foster
