Experience the process and printing photos have been traditionally in the darkroom. Take the opportunity on how to develop black and white film manually. Each participant will be given the opportunity to own a piece of printing black and white photos in the darkroom.
Traditional photographic process did not rule out the progress of digital technology. It is an alternative process is currently having its own specialty. Photography is about painting with light. In developed countries, traditional photography is still widely practiced by certain groups. In Malaysia, traditional photographic methods are now growing again.
This session took about 2 hours (but we had longer than that). As a first step for the class, there will be an introduction about the general analogue photography. The objective of this program is to provide early exposure or introduction on how to process film and print black and white traditionally.
Here are some of the essence of developing black and white films:
1. A processing tank.
2. Film developer.
4. Some beakers.
5. A darkroom.
6. An enlarger, lens and the negative carrier.
7. A timer.
8. Photo papers.
9. 4 processing trays.
Done with the learning part, here comes the fun part! Each participant will have his or her own portrait and the photos printed are allowed to take home as a memento.
Develop! Then, each of us got the chance to learn on how to scan and print our own portrait in the darkroom. However, all participants can only print a photo only when the program because time is limited.
I strongly recommend this course for you guys to attend this Darkroom Introduction Program. We really had a good time learning and experimenting. There are much to learn and there will be no ending even you are considered as a pro.
