ONSITE: Introduction to Darkroom Photography (A)
Learn to take photographs using 35mm film, process the film, and print photographs in a darkroom. Enjoy lots of technical guidance and aesthetic feedback, whether you’re just getting started or expanding your portfolio and skill set.
- Some materials and equipment are provided. 35 mm camera, paper and film will need to be purchased by the student. The chemicals in the darkroom are potentially hazardous or harmful if not handled properly (teacher will go over this in the first class). Wearing closed-toe shoes are preferred, and clothes you don't mind getting some darkroom chemicals on in the case it gets a little bit messy here or there.
