Film education is a HUGE part of what we do at theFINDlab. Whether that means learning a new medium, mastering a medium you already know or gaining some unexpected tips and tricks along the way, theFINDlab is the industry’s go-to resource for all things film. We wanted to help put together a resource of our favorite film workshops and a guide of who they are best recommended for.
Film knowledge is a living, breathing thing that needs constant nourishment and we’re here to share what we know with you.

The Transition To Film - $
Whether you’re just beginning with film, want to start, or you’re somewhere in your journey along the way and feeling frustrated, this workshop is aimed at not only teaching you the basics, but also showing you the ins and outs of how Ashley makes it work for her business.
Join Ashley in this 4-week course if you have an old camera that was passed down to you and you have no idea how to use it. If you want your art to stop being about the post-processing and more about the real moments. If it matters to you that your children’s lives are photographed the way yours was. Film is a medium that never went out of style and can be used in a very functional, beautiful, relevant way to document everyday beauty.

Let's be real.

We are going into film stocks, what we use, why we use them. We will cover metering, backlighting, finding great light, shooting in harsh light, shooting in overcast conditions, shooting while it's raining, shooting at noon, shooting with movement, artful storytelling, cinematic posing, shooting for publication, destination weddings, and so much more! If you're newer to film or just starting out, not getting consistent results, feeling uninspired, needing more help with posing, or need more film knowledge this is definitely the workshop for you! We want you to leave confident reaching for your film camera.
