We'll use the H16 Bolex Reflex camera, to shoot, various lab equipment along with a LOMO developing tank and an EIKI SSL-O projector! We will go over key chemical reactions, how to mix our own chemistry, and each student will take home a 100’ roll of this film to shoot and process at a later date! All chemicals and equipment will be provided. Films will be ready to screen at the end of the session.
