In this class students explore advanced darkroom printing techniques. The class includes a demonstration followed by hands-on supervised darkroom time.
In the demo the instructor will introduce the concepts of printing on fiber paper for more longevity, split filtration for better contrast control, and techniques for finer burning and dodging.
In the second half of class, the instructor will be on hand to answer questions and provide guidance as you work independently. Each print will be evaluated to create a more refined final image.
This class is great as a stand-alone for new photographers seeking additional darkroom challenges or as a follow up to our Intro to B&W Darkroom Printing class.
*Looking Glass will supply chemistry. Be sure to bring a roll of DEVELOPED film for printing. Bring a contact sheet for that roll. Each student will need a box of 8x10 fiber-based darkroom paper and blotter book.
