2-day Weekend Photography Course
Working in small groups (no larger than 3 per class), this intensive beginner’s course is designed to allow maximum tutor support for each person. The first day is spent onsite at TAP and the surrounding area shooting black & white film, exploring how different aperture settings, exposure lengths and film speed ratings affect image quality and how to improve your picture-taking with simple tweaks. We then move into the darkroom and develop the films using lightsafe tanks.
The second day is spent in the darkroom, producing contact sheets and final prints from your negatives and learning how to correctly make enlargements using test strips. If time allows the session will touch on image manipulation in the darkroom: making corrections, dodging & burning and solarisation.
This course is an introduction designed for those with no previous experience in a darkroom and all developing and printing materials needed are included in the course cost.
You will need to bring with you a roll of HP5 film and a 35mm film SLR camera.
