Intermediate Darkroom Photography (B) (This class is only offered a few times a year!)

For students with previous experience in the darkroom, this is an opportunity to explore more in-depth darkroom printing processes and gain new tools for experimentations and creativity. Students will cover a variety of skills, from how to fine-tune contrast in printing, mastering multiple exposure techniques, solarization, and more. Option to learn print toning, spotting, and more finishing techniques based on student interest.

Special Notes

  • This is primarily a darkroom printing class. Any film that students print from will need to be shot outside of class. Feel free to bring in old film to work with or to process new rolls. Students supply their own film, camera and paper.

About the Instructor

Em White

I am a photographer and educator, focusing in historic photographic processes. I work with medium and large format film, as well as create negatives using the wet-plate collodion process. Frequently, I can be found setting up my mobile darkroom along bucolic back roads and hazy riverbeds, working with my hands and light to capture a disappearing reality. As an artist, my work is greatly influenced by the land I come from, a place of impenetrable growth and dark tunnels of kudzu. I use historic photographic processes to capture contemporary subjects and I have a portrait studio here in Richmond where I enjoy collaborating and creating with members of our community.
