Darkroom Introduction Program

2

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.
3. Fixer.
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.

The results!

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.

For the Malaysians, grab this chance now! You may contact fototeacher.com if interested. Or even say hello on facebook.com/fototeacher.

    Stop bath is a type of chemical used in the darkroom for processing black and white film, aptly named as such because it halts the development of the images. In this case, stop bath is also part of the title that Korean analogue street photographer <b><a href="http://instagram.com/sooeatsyourstreetforbreakfast">Soomin Yim</a></b> has given her body of work, "Stop Bath the City," to represent the forgotten faces of people in the city amid rapid modernization, captured and immortalized on black and white film.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
