How will I be taught?
Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. Some classroom session for theory, but mainly practical hands on sessions in the darkroom and on location (weather and light permitting)
What do I need to bring with me?
Something to take notes on and a willingness to experiment. A 35mm camera would be essential equipment, the camera would need to have some ability to manually control aperture and shutter speed. During darkroom sessions you may want to wear clothes you don’t mind getting stained, or an apron. Please don't purchase any books or new equipment until you have consulted with the tutor. There will also be an additional cost for materials, which your tutor will discuss with you in the first session.
What can I do next?
Attend an ‘open darkroom’ workshops to improve and enhance your skills - TBC Attend a specialist darkroom technique workshop - TBC Transfer your skills to a digital photography workshop
What do I need to join the course
An interest in photography is a must, with the desire to learn and experiment with more traditional analogue techniques. A 35mm camera is essential equipment, the camera would need to have some ability to manually control aperture and shutter speed. Please could you bring either an empty shoe box (or similar), a clean paint tin or a clean treacle tin to the first lesson.
