Black & white photography: camera, film & darkroom weekend workshop
Weekend workshop: Saturday & Sunday
26th-27th August, 2017
This workshop will be run by John Williams
Most people taking up photography this century will have started out on a digital camera. Marvellous tools that they are, there remains a great attraction to doing things the old way - silver-based analogue photography.
This workshop will uncover the mysteries of the darkroom, and you will find it's relatively simple to get started and add a new dimension to your photography. Anyone wanting to give their photography a lift should try shooting black & white film and experience developing and printing it themselves, by hand.
If you haven't used a darkroom for a few years, or decades, this workshop will provide you with a good brush-up on techniques. It is also suitable for those teaching photography as an art subject and wanting practical darkroom skills and an understanding of how the process works, and to pass on the knowledge.
