About the course Ask us a question about this course
Aimed at photographers who want to move away from the clinical environment of the digital lab and rediscover the magic of traditional wet darkroom photography processes.
This course provides black and white film developing and print making techniques. It includes a large component of self-directed darkroom time where students may under the guidance of the lecturer; use the facilities to refine their black and white printing skills.
Students may print their own negatives or those existing in their family archives.
PLEASE NOTE! Film development is covered in the first session so it is recommended that students bring a roll of exposed B&W (NOT C-41 or E-6 process) film for the first session. From week 2 students will be printing their negatives that they developed in the first week. For this they will require B&W photographic paper.
We recommend the following, Ilford (brand) Multigrade Resin Coated B&W paper, 8x10inches size with either a Pearl or Gloss coating finish.
Our department provides the costs of chemicals for processing paper & film, technical support to mix the chemicals and covers costs of legal dumping of spent chemicals (after silver recovery). We have found by way of research on past and present students that they prefer to supply their own paper due to the individual’s preference of size and characteristics
Topics covered include:
B&W film developing
Basic printing techniques
Intermediate printing techniques
Presentation & conservation
