2012 FILM PHOTO WALK SERIES / THROWBACK TO THE GLORY DAYS OF FILM SPRING WILDFLOWER EXPOSE / MAD PHOTO WALKS
For photophile enthusiasts and film aficionados in hiding, come share MADOGRAPHY'S heartfelt embrace of retro themes and adventurous escapades in our epic return to that from which we've all come..... FILM FILM FILM!!!Mark your calendar, leave the entire day and night (its a glorious Full Moon) open, and join us for our 2012 Film Photo Walk Series - Throwback to the Glory Days of Film Spring Wildflower Expose this May 5th 2012. Our MAD Photo Walks are not "Instructional Workshops" as some might assume, but instead a focused gathering, open to all and of every skill level- from novice to expert. The goal of all our MAD Photo Walks is simply to bring like-minded photographers together, who share a particularly deep seeded passion for capturing images on FILM; and, who are eager to share their passion with other photographers interested in and dedicated to the preservation of film photography! Film photography truly is ART. Not only is film capture not dying off, it is only now becoming (because of its brethren digital photography's evolution) the art form it was meant to be- shedding the burdensome role of being "the" visual/communicative medium that digital photography has now replaced. Though absolutely wonderful in its own right, digital photography and the plethora of imagery pollution it creates, is not the same discipline or pursuit as film based photography. Understanding these differences, our MAD Photo Walks bring like-minded photographers together and whose passion for creating imagery on film honors this Artistic Form through the artists' sharing of knowledge, experiences and techniques as they relate to the film medium. Of course, all the "old film formats" are welcome: 110, 135, medium, large, and everything in between.... All MAD Photo Walks are FREE and open to anyone wishing to attend. Participants are, however, solely responsible for providing all their own: equipment, film, food, travel, and other related necessities when attending our Photo Walks. Please RSVP (using our register/contact form) so that we can better manage this experience for all who attend- thank you!
