  • Inner and outer operation of the camera
  • Functions and accessories
  • Handling the camera – checking, preparing, cleaning and loading
  • Exposure and use of a light meter
  • Choice of film
  • Choice of lenses
  • Creative possibilities offered

You will also learn how to prepare yourself for the realities of analog filming with some useful tools.
