Analogue Darkroom 2

This class will continue the work begun in Analogue Darkroom 1 and build upon techniques examined in that class. In addition we will concentrate on print production from conception to finish. The ever-changing technology of materials will be addressed and topics such as mural production, alternative processes, unique toning formulas, and postproduction presentation techniques will be explored through demonstration, lecture, and hands on practice.
