This course uses black and white film to teach the basic principles of photography and the SLR camera.
It will provide hands on experience in the darkroom of developing film and making prints and instruction on 35mm manually operated SLR film cameras. These are photographic skills that are equally applicable to using either digital or film cameras.
2. What you will study
Students will learn how to develop film, make prints using enlargers and be introduced to toning and the creative possibilities of working hands on with chemical processes. Students will be shown the basic workings of the photographic studio and are encouraged to keep a visual diary during the course to become a personal journal of their development.
Students require a suitable manual 35mm SLR camera, although other fully manual film cameras can be used. You may wish to wait until the course starts if you need to make a purchase with advice from your tutor, cameras are easily obtainable.
