Discover the artistry of creating luminous color photographic prints that only analog film can produce. In this introductory online course from BKC, you’ll learn basic photo enlarger operation, contact printing of negatives and filtration techniques to balance out color casts. You’ll also learn darkroom safety and etiquette as you print contact sheets and enlargements from your preprocessed negatives. Color photographic paper and darkroom chemistry will be provided. As this class does not cover film developing, students should come to class with finished negatives, either developed as C-41 process-only at a nearby photo lab or by dropping off film at Bushwick Community Darkroom at least 2 days ahead of class.
Q: What is the minimum age requirement for kids to attend?
I did the one-day workout this Sunday from 11am-4pm led by Kathy. I couldn't be happier with the class, it's really well structured and easy to understand. After having been using the auto mode on my camera for 7+ years now, I can finally use the manual mode now. I took some shots on manual after the class and some turned out a lot better than the auto mode. I'm so excited to take my camera out for runs now. Thanks so much Kathy and BKC!
