School of Film workshop: MAKE YOUR OWN DSLR LENS

Make Your Own Lens2

Taught by the Northwest Film Center’s Equipment and Facilities Manager, Dave Hanagan.

Create a handmade lens that delivers an antique portrait look and dreamy, otherworldly effects.

Topics: Learn to create a lens that offers a distinctly different look than the sharp focus properties of commercial lenses; using easily available and affordable materials (provided with class tuition), build your own handmade lens step by step; learn about the principles of lenses, the differences in lens designs (including concepts of “flange focal length” and “spherical aberration”), and how this lens design is different; experiment with the looks you can achieve in class, then take home your lens creation and liven up your filming.

Allocated gear: Bring your DSLR if you have one (not required). Tuition includes all supplies.
Prerequisites: None
When: Saturday, June 14; 10am-2pm
Where: NW Film Center School of Film – 934 SW Salmon St., Portland, OR (corner of 10 & Salmon)

Sign up by calling (503) 221-1156 or on our website.
