Open Studios

The Hui’s Open Studio Program provides students and community artists the opportunity to work independently with access to professional artist studios, equipment, and tools. Please note that Hui classes and workshops take priority over open studio. Please check our class schedule to become familiar with potential conflicts. Mahalo.

Photography
While it is recommended that students take a Hui class to complete eligibility requirements, all those who have some knowledge of how to use the darkroom are welcome to attend.

Studio Hours:

Mondays (starting 10/27/14), 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Cost:
$15 per single visit, covers studio time & chemistry

Here’s how it works:
You don’t need to register in advance, but it’s helpful since that way we know if someone’s coming. However, If we have no advance registration and no one comes within the first half hour, the tech may leave. The cost is $15 for the 3-hour session and includes all chemistry as well as camera usage. On that note – we now have 3 additional 35mm Nikons for use! Please bring your own film & paper.

Here is the website we order most of our supplies from:

http://www.freestylephoto.biz/

Film: 35mm or 120 (Holga/Diana/Mamiya) Pick whatever brand you like – if you have questions regarding ISO let me know.

Paper: We use the Arista EDU Ultra VC RC. You can pick any brand and size (larger paper can be cut down), I recommend you choose a paper that is resin coated (RC) and variable contrast (VC). However, if you feel you’d like to try some of higher quality papers, let me know and we can go over the options.
