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.

Analogue Darkroom 1

This lab class will introduce students to the current state of analogue practices. Through a series of demonstrations and assignments students will become familiar with advanced analogue technology in black and white photography. We will review the zone system, roll film and large format sheet film processing options, use of esoteric films and developers and the integration of a methodology to approach this in their own work.
