This is a beginning photography camp for ages 10-15, usingblack and white film and a traditional darkroom. The camp will begin with an introduction to positive and negative using alternative processes like cyanotypes and build to an understanding of positive and negatives as it relates to developing images. Each session is designed to introduce and build upon concepts of taking, developing and printing images. Over the course of 4 days each participant will learn proper metering, film exposures and development, as well as an introduction to printing in the wet darkroom. Take home assignments will be given at the end of each day that will help participants learn as well as explore and enjoy photography. Each day will be split with a morning and afternoon session with a 45 minute lunch break.Students must provide their own camera equipment. A 35mm camera with the capability to shoot in full manual mode (no aperture priority or auto-focus) is required. It is recommended that the camera is fitted with a 50mm (normal) lens. Used equipment in good working condition is OK. The instructor recommends a Pentax K1000 if purchasing a camera for this class. They are readily available used and very affordable.
