Day 1
A short introduction to shooting B&W film. Participants will each get a roll of film and we will go out and about in the city and make images for an hour or so. We may also make some in the studio if the weather isn’t good!
NOTE: Participants MAY bring along film that they have shot previously and is ready to process.
We will then learn how to develop our films and what possibilities are available for this process.
After processing we will have an introduction to printing our images in the darkroom.
Learn the use of enlargers to make prints.
Learn how to control contrast etc
Participants will have some finished prints to take away at the end the day.
The workshop will be from 10am until 5.30pm
