Over 8 weeks we'll cover basic film camera operation, darkroom skills, black & white film processing, test strips, contact sheets and negative enlargement. We'll delve deep into more advanced techniques like contrast filtration, dodging and burning, combination printing, print toning, hand-coloring, alternative printing and more. You'll complete printing assignments each week with included darkroom membership for the duration of the class ($400 value).
This 8-hour intensive workshop will combine shooting, processing, developing and printing into one action-packed day. You'll get a refresher on shooting mechanics and using your light meter, then we'll each shoot a roll of film in the surrounding neighborhood. From there you’ll learn how to process the exposed film using a film reel and developing tank, and start making contact prints. Finally, we’ll be enlarging negatives onto traditional darkroom paper, so that you can take home beautiful 8x10 prints that you’ve made entirely on your own.
Part of our ongoing collaboration with UrbanGlass studio in Downtown Brooklyn, Justin is teaming up with glass artist and instructor Amy Lemaire for this hands-on workshop creating our own, one-of-a-kind lenses. Using the flameworking studio, we'll build weird and wonderfully distorting lenses for DSLR cameras, iPhones, and even projectors. This is a truly inspiring two-session class designed to stretch your imagination of what photography is all about.
