You are to bring exposed but unprocessed black & white film to the workshop.

  • You will acquire the skills to properly develop black and white negatives of any format. Then you will learn how to make exposure test strips and a work print before making a final print.

  • You will leave with a fine, handcrafted print and a how-to guide so you can continue to experiment on your own.

Who is this workshop suited to?

Ideal for the photographer who wishes to learn how to develop their own negatives and control the printing process from start to finish.

Benefit from creative input by your peers. It is suited to different experience levels, so you can choose to continue at your own pace.

What will your day look like?

9 am - 4:30 pm

We start the day in our studio with a presentation on the theory and best practice of processing followed by an opportunity to practice with dummy film.  You will then develop your own film.

Once your film has dried, we will speak about how to get the best results from your negative and proceed to the final  step: Printing!
