During the Port Festival in Port Adelaide, photography and vintage camera lovers will get their fill of all things analogue with alternative photography exhibitions, workshops and activities to be held from 18th to 20th October.
The artists are encouraged to use different styles and processes to develop the photos taken around the local area.
Even if you've never used a film camera before, everyone is welcome to join the project, but you must register your interest no later than Wednesday 25th September. Don't have a film camera to use? Ask around, most people used to own one. It's possible that you know someone who has one tucked away in a cupboard somewhere and may let you borrow it for this project.

Apart from the thrill of capturing Port Adelaide on film and exhibiting those photos, there will be demonstrations and workshops on the antique photo processing types of Tintype and Daguerreotype which date back to the 1800's.
There'll be a vintage camera market too, so Like their Facebook page and stay tuned for all the details as they are announced.
This will be a most unique event and one that will showcase The Port in a truly remarkable and historic way.
