Explorations in Darkroom Photography


We will dive into the basic skill set of photography and creating your own photographs in the darkroom. In this class, we will explore the technique of painting with light, through photograms (magic made in the darkroom without a camera) and the basics of shooting, developing, and printing from film! Don’t have a 35mm camera? No problem, we will have extras in class for students to use. But feel free to bring your own so you can learn how to use it!
