Darkroom Course | Black & White Photographic Printing
Learn the craft of traditional fine printing from one of London’s premier printers. This intensive darkroom course takes students from the basic fundamentals of black & white through to the more advanced techniques utilised in the making of exhibition-quality prints. Taking place in our professionally equipped air-conditioned darkrooms, the course runs over two evenings and will cover topics such as resin-coated and fibre-based variable contrast papers, dodging & burning, pre-flashing, and archival processing.
Places are limited to enable each participant access to their own enlarger thus affording the opportunity to combine observation of particular demonstrations with the chance to put techniques into practice individually. Photofusion supplies all paper and chemistry. You will be contacted nearer the time regarding what negs to bring.
This course only covers the printing of images from already processed film – it does not cover the topic of film processing itself. Participants should therefore bring previously processed negatives. Photofusion offers a full black & white processing service for those who do not already have their own processing facilities.
