What you'll do

This experience consists of an approach to analog photography in its most classic style: large format (guests are free to include works in other formats, as well as ask for assistance and advice; maintenance service will even be provided for classic cameras that will be specified on my page). The experience has two stages that will take place on the same day. First stage: theoretical introduction to photographic equipment management and emotional connection with the practice of photography as art (it will be possible to clarify all doubts and curiosities that arise during the process). Second stage: practical photography class (at this stage, guests will be able to photograph the spaces specified in the "Where will we go" section).
Afterwards, I will reveal the film and send the pictures to the guests.
Other things to note
Guests must have the physical conditions necessary for the experience, since they will be working with a relatively heavy equipment (cameras, large tripods, briefcase with lenses, plate holders, etc.), as well as the curiosity and patience necessary for this type of work.

Where you'll be

The first stage will take place on a ruined roof that sits on top of a hill, right next to a small amusement park, from which you can see the city (among the places that stand out you can find the Capitol, in Old Havana). The second stage will then consist of a photo session, so that guests can photograph the urban space.
