Photography Black & White Darkroom

Photography - the traditional way

The course is 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. The course provides black and white film developing and print making techniques.
It includes a large component of self-directed darkroom time where you may use the facilities under the guidance of the lecturer to refine your black and white printing skills.  You may print your own negatives or those existing in your family archives.

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.
