Are you tired of the tons of digital photos everywhere everyday, and are you looking for an analog change, some fresh photographic experiences? We may recommend Polaroid photography. To us, nothing else is more magic than a photo developing in the palm of your hands, captured just seconds before with care, and resulting in an unpredictable chemical painting, that's just as unique as the captured moment. We introduce you to the most popular Polaroid camera types, explain you how they work and how to treat the Impossible instant film material for best results.
The advantage of holding a real instant photo in your hands is that you can do with it whatever comes to your mind - use it as a postcard, pin it on the wall - or work further with the visual result. In this workshop you discover various classic manipulation techniques like the emulsion lift, where you transfer the image emulsion onto any other desired surface.
Large format cameras are some of the earliest photographic devices and still enjoy popularity amongst photographers and artists - no wonder, with all the photographic possibilities and truly stunning results. See for yourself when working with our 8x10 camera, a breathtaking, old Viennese portrait camera from a traditional small portrait studio in the 15th district. Built in the middle of the last century by Camera Industrie Austria, the camera features a heavy, old-school Petzval-style glass lens for truly impressive photographic results.
Learn how to operate the world's largest Polaroid camera (or to be precise, one of the worldwide seven pieces) and take your 20x24 portrait home with you from this exclusive workshop! The Polaroid 20x24 camera is a unique camera system, developed by Polaroid in the 70ies and producing breathtakingly large instant photos sized 20x24inch/51x61cm. Eva is one of the few people in the world who knows how to operate this camera, and she'll be sharing her knowledge with participants who do then - under her guidance - take stunning large format portraits of each other.
Ready to take Polaroid photography outdoor? SUPERSENSE photography experts Ave or Eva guide you and demonstrate what to consider when taking photos outside - in terms of lightning, camera settings and the film's ideal development in sensitive temperature surroundings. Choose between our Prater tour - Vienna's legendary amusement park which offers tons of great photo opportunities, or join Marc, the founder of the Reiseschneiderei (tailor-made & custom-fit city guides) through Vienna's 2nd district, one of the liveliest ones that Marc knows all the best spots of.
Discover letterpress printing on its very original principles and techniques. Work on our Korrex Berlin-Spezial 1968 proofing press or our jobbing press, understand how to work with pure analog tools like antique lead and wood types or linoleum printing plates. Discover the various sorts of letterpress printing such as woodcut or linoleum cut. At the end of the workshop you'll be printing your personal poster or postcard.
In this very personal workshop you bring your visions to life by letterpress printing. Guided by our printipessa Laura, who will be spending the day with you to help you producing your very own letterpress prints on our machines - choose color, type, design, printing options and enjoy the freedom of working towards your visions.
Discover this traditional printmaking technique from the beginning of the 20th century. Using a sheet of linoleum, you're cutting a relief surface with a sharp knife, then ink it with a roller and press it by hand or on our letterpress machine. Supersense's letterpress artist Wild Evel introduces you to all the tools and guides you through the complete process.
