As a nod to the shoulders of giants on which we stand as we create photographic works today, these three workshops, The Camera, The Negative and The Print, will be an introduction to film photography for those who have forgotten, have returned, or are starting fresh. These workshops will be of interest to neophyte photographers as well as more experienced practitioners.
"The Print" is a hands-on workshop that will introduce new participants to the process of enlarging and printing photographic images from negatives in a traditional wet darkroom at the Art Gallery of Burlington. Attendees will be introduced to safe practices in the darkroom, print developing chemistry and equipment and the process of producing a silver gelatin print. Experienced attendees will be introduced to more advanced printing techniques such as split grade printing.
This workshop is open to anyone with an interest to learn traditional black & white printing processes.
Bring a roll of black & white film negatives to work with. (Don't have any, but still interested? Get in touch, there are negatives available for learning printing processes as well!)
