Rediscovering Analogue: Learning Film Photography with Jagdish Yadav | IIP Weekend Series

Join us as we dive deep into the fascinating world of analogue film photography course with veteran photojournalist Jagdish Yadav. With nearly four decades of experience, Mr. Jagdish Yadav brings a wealth of knowledge and stories from the era of film photography.

Exploring the Essence of Analogue Photography: Analogue photography, often revered for its traditional techniques and hands-on approach, plays a pivotal role in understanding the roots and the artistry of photography. Unlike digital photography, analogue involves capturing images using film, which is then processed in a darkroom, offering a unique, tactile experience that digital technology cannot replicate.

A Glimpse into the History of Analogue Photography: The journey of analogue photography began in the early 19th century, marking a significant milestone in visual art. From the daguerreotype to the invention of the roll film by George Eastman, analogue photography has evolved through various phases, shaping the way we perceive and capture the world around us.

Mastering the Exposure Triangle through the SLR Camera: One of the foundational elements of photography, the exposure triangle—comprising aperture, shutter speed, and ISO—is crucial for mastering film photography. Using an SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera, photographers can manually adjust these settings to control the amount of light that reaches the film, affecting the brightness and overall look of the image. This hands-on adjustment is what makes analogue photography a highly skillful art form.

The Darkroom Process: The darkroom is where the magic of analogue photography comes alive. This process includes developing the film with chemicals to reveal negative images, which are then projected onto photographic paper to create final prints. Each step, from choosing the right developer to timing the exposure of paper, requires precision and expertise, making it a profoundly satisfying experience for photographers.
