This course is designed to take students through the process of developing film and making traditional wet prints from negatives using black and white photographic materials. It is an introductory course, enabling the student to grasp the fundamentals of processing, chemicals, darkroom safety and enlarging. Over the course of the program you will develop two rolls of film, make a contact sheet and create quality silver gelatin prints. The course requires additional materials, which will cost between $50-$100. A list will be provided at the beginning of your first class. You will also need to have a working film camera and an exposed roll of black and white film (excluding Ilford XP2) in either 35mm or 120 format for the first day of class. Please make sure to test the camera you are planning to use.
