In this guided open darkroom class, you can take a deeper dive into film photography and the traditional darkroom techniques. We may also explore several alternative processes. It will be tailored toward each student’s specific skill level and objectives. The instructor will be available to work with each student to help them advance their own photography and darkroom knowledge and experience, or you can just work on your own, knowing someone will be there to answer any questions that may arise.

  • B&W film choices; speed and grain differences
  • B&W film alternative processing methods like Push/Pull, Cold, Stand, and Reversal development
