This is a continued beginner and intermediate class. Beginner participants will learn the essentials of shooting & developing film, as well as darkroom proofing and printing. For those at an intermediate level this class is a continuation of the introductory class, in which we further explore and practice film exposure, film developing, and refine darkroom printing skills.
In the intermediate portion of this workshop, we will introduce the Zone System, push/pull film developing, and split-contrast printing as we move towards an understanding of The Fine Print. You will also get a chance to print on, and tone fiber-based paper. This is a great class for hands-on practice to improve skills and habits, moving towards the production of the fine print.
Beginners in the class will be introduced to B+W film photography. We will cover the basics of camera operation and light-metering. In the darkroom – film developing, proofing, and printing on photographic paper are introduced.
