    ...where i can learn how 2 handle a film SLR?
    Hi weewee,

    What do you mean specifically? Exposure, i.e. shutter speeds and f/ stops? Composition, etc?

    Maybe you'd like to elaborate?

    If you are interested in shooting in studio, you can always contact me. I organize studio workshops regularly.

    In the past we had all kinds who joined the studio events, from the very beginners (who just bought his camera few days ago!) to the very experienced (you guess?) The only pre-condition is you must be interested in studio shoot. (be honest to yourself.)
    In studio shoot, I can start by showing you how to load the film(!), then tell you what shutter speed and aperture to use. If you need, I can also help you on composition, posing etc.

    Hi weewee,

    I'm basically self taught so I've not attended any courses before. Since you're entirely new, I'd suggest going for it (depending on yr budget). Attend the courses with an open mind and ask whatever questions that may seem stupid.

    For starters, the PSS is about the only place I can direct you too. Or you could start off with Astin in studio shoots or sulhan's outdoor lessons. I've not attended these too but I'm suggesting them since they've been brought up in this post. IMHO, it doesn't really matter if you learn studio lighting first or natural lighting first. Get a feel for your camera, its operation, etc. rather than try to swallow too much at once. I sense your anxiety to learn - that's good!

    Don't feel intimidated by those around you with bigger and better cameras than what you have. (By the way, what camera do you have?). Important thing is to have fun!

    If you'd like, get a book on the basics of photography which covers just about all the basics of photography - just like taking your highway code first before the practical lesson

    Enjoy!
