An Experience Like No Other
The Lost Medium is a two-week summer camp program focused on the art of film photography. From July 16th through July 27th, students will learn photographic history, the inner workings of a 35mm camera, developing and printing black and white film in our own darkroom, along with gaining knowledge of alternative photographic and printing techniques. Your child will receive the utmost personal attention with one instructor to every four students. At the end of the program your child’s portfolio will be displayed in a gallery setting with friends and family invited.
We first started the summer camp in 2012 after realizing a huge disconnect in the world of photography. People are snapping thousands of images a second and not taking the time to think about what they’re capturing. The aim of our program is to pass down knowledge on both the history of photography, as well as understanding the importance of shooting, developing and printing your own photos. Students are given the tools needed to take their photography to the next level. We even offer an advanced film photography course for those already familiar with analog photography.
