ONSITE: Intermediate Darkroom Photography (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.
- 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.
Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
