This workshop covers the proper use of a 35mm camera, how to create a good negative and processing B&W film using darkroom chemistry. A great introduction to analog photography, this workshop will teach participants how to use a manual 35mm camera and process their film. Instructor Ruth Kaplan will provide an overview of 35mm cameras, their functions and mechanisms before participants go out in the city to capture a roll of provided film—which they will then process using B&W film chemistry.
All materials are provided.
*Camera’s will be available if participants don't have their own
