Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd March 2020
Weekend Course Outline
A perfect follow-on course for those who have already completed either of our B&W Beginners courses or who have a basic level of B&W darkroom printing experience.
Please bring B&W negatives (35mm or medium format) that relate to each other in some way (subject matter, tonal range, environment etc) as we will be making a number of prints that can be read as a series.
Skills you will learn: reading a negative, producing print plans, expanded single-filter printing, split-filter printing, dodging and burning, pre-flashing, producing a series of prints on fibre-based paper, finishing your prints.
