The Black & White Darkroom

Wednesdays, from 10:30am – 12:30pm
March 6 – 27, 2019

This 4-session class is directed to students who either want to learn basic skills printing their own black and white photographs, or students who would like to get back into the darkroom but need a refresher. This class can also be for those students who are comfortable in a darkroom but would like to print with someone nearby for advice or suggestions. No matter who you are – it’s time to get into the darkroom…

Tools such as contrast control and dodging and burning will be emphasized. Learn how to open up details in a photo like the samples above.

Students will be required to bring paper and negatives to each class. Suggestions for paper purchases and film processing will be given upon registration. Enrollment is limited so please register asap.


Price: $120.00
CEPA Member Price: $90.00

CEPA Teaching Artist: Kim Sholly

Kim has been teaching and sharing her love of the black and white darkroom since the early 1990’s. Since relocating to Buffalo in late summer 2017, she has been excited about the easy access to a darkroom in her new city and looks forward to having the opportunity to introduce CEPA’s darkroom to as many people as she can. She shoots primarily with homemade pinhole and 1960’s plastic toy cameras and says that the fun of shooting low-tech is the unpredictability of the resulting images, images that cannot be choreographed or reproduced and are only discovered later in the darkroom.
