Interested in old school black and white film photography? Well, this is the place to get involved with all
aspects of this interesting process, from loading and operating a film camera, developing the film into
negatives and then turning them into beautiful back and white prints. Learning about composition is
ongoing with critiques at each stage of the process. In addition to learning the process of black & white
film photography, there is the community of fellow film photographers that "develops" around the
darkroom sinks as the more experienced members of the class offer support and comments to the
newer members. All of the darkroom facilities are available at each class.
Please note, registration will close by noon-time the Monday prior to the start of class. Please do not put off registration.This course takes place on the Worcester State University Campus, in the Comunications Department Photo Studio, LRC Room 128.

Notes on materials: A 35mm camera with two rolls of film is great to start. Most students today use Ilford HP5+ as it is more readily available than Tri-X but that is also a fine film for class. If you know how to use a film camera, you can shoot a roll and bring it to class for processing. A few 35mm negative pages to protect negatives can also be picked up. If you require a loaner camera, please should let us know ahead of time, so the darkroom can have one ready for you on the first class. The paper for making prints is Ilford Multigrade IV RC in 8 x10. A box of 25 sheets is a good start.
