Set your digital camera aside for a while and step back into traditional black and white photography. Manual camera operation, film exposure and development, and basic printing techniques will all be covered. Through demonstrations and supervised darkroom time, you will have the opportunity to learn the basic skills of black and white photography including visual elements like composition. Bring an empty 35 mm camera. Manual settings are strongly recommended but not required.
Get into the darkroom and work on your own projects with some professional expertise on hand! You can print some images you've been meaning to finish, or try out some new techniques, or just find the time to get back in the darkroom and experiment. Darkroom experience required.
This crash course is designed for those with darkroom experience who are a little rusty on their skills. Manual camera controls, film exposure and development, and darkroom printing will all be covered. Students will walk away with the skills and resources to work independently.
