In this workshop, we'll show you some important techniques for shooting smaller objects without dropping thousands of dollars on high-end lighting gear. We’ll show you how to maximize just about any camera to capture clean, well-lit photographs of clothes, shoes, accessories, as well as collectible items or even electronics.
This class will cover basic enlarger operation, contact printing of negatives, as well as color filtration to balance out color casts and achieve a great-looking print. Additionally we'll discuss proper darkroom etiquette and safety so that you'll be able to use the color darkroom with confidence. In a few short hours, you'll be well on your way to creating luminous photographic enlargements with that extra magic that only analog technology can provide.
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.
