Darkroom Course | Black & White Photographic Printing

Learn the craft of traditional darkroom printing from one of our expert tutors. This intensive darkroom course takes students from the basic fundamentals of black and 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 will cover topics such as resin-coated and fibre-based variable contrast papers, dodging and burning, pre-flashing, and archival processing.

Places are limited to enable each participant access to their own enlarger giving 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 negatives 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.
