What you'll do

! ! ! First of all, this is not my travel shot for you, because it is not an experience! ! !

This is an activity where you shoot the film camera yourself.
We will have a list of cameras to choose from for you; for example, old Leica cameras from the 30s and old Minolta cameras from the 60s. After meeting, we will provide you with the film camera of your choice.

From 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm or even 6:30 pm; starting from the coffee shop, I will introduce how to use and install the film in detail, and then explain some knowledge of composition.

We will go to several great places in the ancient city of Dali to take some photos to familiarize ourselves with the camera in detail.
Next, we will go to Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake to take photos in several great places for non-tourists. You will thoroughly discover the charm of the film camera and use it proficiently.

We have a car to travel far away, so the physical strength is not very great.

After shooting, I will take back the equipment and film and go to the studio for development. Usually it takes about two weeks to process and I will email scanned copies or mail the negatives. Of course you can also use a Polaroid camera.

I also have a night experience about Dali night scene shooting:

Hello, I am the filmmaker Pharaoh and the lead of the EnjoyLife leather goods brand. I usually do design in my own Dali studio. I like to travel in my free time. As a resident in Dali, I know many non-tourist attractions and great places to take pictures. Recording beautiful pictures with a traditional film camera is a very interesting process through development and enlargement to get photos. It is unique and cannot be copied; it is also the purpose of my experience. You can see my film photography at the following URL: https://gurushots.com/axlzhe/photos

This photography tour was amazing! We chose very old and original film cameras, learned how to use them, and finally went to 3 different areas to take photos. We got many useful tips and all our questions answered. It didn’t feel rushed at all, more like taking a walk with a friend! There were many funny or interesting stories about the city and life. We would highly recommended the tour to everyone who are interested to using the film cameras or knowing more of the city.

这是来大理很特别的一次体验,大诗是一位很愿意分享很有耐心的人,个人体验和经历很多,所以全程不紧不慢地带着去体验和交流。最重要的是卡片机里紧有的张数,变得特别有意义,结束行程还有照片留作纪念和回忆,特别好。
