In the beginner darkroom classes, you learned the basics of black and white photography, processed film and made basic prints on RC paper. Now you’re ready to move on to more advanced processing and printing techniques.
You’ll learn about different developers, how they affect sharpness and contrast range and how to change the effective ISO of your film. We won’t actually be processing film in this workshop. You’ll bring ready to print negatives. You’ll learn to print with variable contrast filters and how to finesse the exposure to bring out shadows and control highlights. You’ll also print on fiber paper and learn how it compares to RC. This workshop offers more printing time overall and will help you to use all your new skills to create finished, high-quality prints with precision and creativity.
Our new darkroom facility was custom built just for teaching small group workshops. We have a film processing area, a printing darkroom with 10 enlarger stations, custom sinks, abundant air conditioning and ventilation systems, and wise teachers to help you develop your skills.
