This 5-week class will look at virtually every
aspect of making the black and white photograph: film choice, exposure, film
processing, printing, toning, matting, and presentation. The purposes of this
class are to refine and hone those technical skills, but also, and more
importantly, to begin the process of selecting from those endless techniques
what each photographer needs to establish a personal “craft” consistent with
their own goals and temperament. This class will also include the instructor’s
own simplification of the Zone System, which allows for the tonal condensation
of extreme contrast situations into a printable negative. Through supervised
printing, lectures, instructor demos and critiquing of work, students will have
a greater understanding of refining their darkroom techniques.
