What you'll learn in this photography class:

This 8-hour intensive workshop will combine shooting, processing, developing and printing classic film photography into one action-packed day. 

After meeting at our partner darkroom, we'll demonstrate how to properly load film and set up your camera. You'll get a refresher on shooting mechanics and using your light meter, then we'll each shoot a roll of film in the surrounding neighborhood. From there you’ll learn how to process the exposed film using a film reel and developing tank, and start making contact prints. Finally, we’ll be enlarging negatives onto traditional darkroom paper, so that you can take home beautiful 8x10 prints that you’ve made entirely on your own.

Who should take this class?

Intermediate and experienced digital shooters who want to try shooting film. Anyone interested in the overall process of analog film capture, processing and printing in a classic darkroom setting.Prerequisites: If you've never taken photos in manual mode, we highly recommend taking Field Guide I or Digital Photo I, or at the very least Crash Course: DSLR, prior to taking this class.

Q&A

Q: What is the minimum age requirement for kids to attend? 
A: All ages are welcome.

Q: Are materials provided and included in the price of the class? 
A: No, you need to bring your old film-based SLR if you have one, though we do have manual SLR cameras to rent. 

Materials provided (included in cost of the class):
  • 1 roll of Kodak Tri-X black and white film (400 ISO, 24 exp)
  • All resin-coated photographic paper
  • All development chemistry
Since this is an all-day session we will have a lunch break, so you might want to bring lunch.
Transferring to Another Session

Because space is limited and classes often fill up, students cancelling class last minute may prevent other students from signing up for that session. For this reason, we require that students who need to reschedule their registration within 72 hours prior to the class scheduled start time will be required to provide a 25% re-registration fee to transfer to another session.   

We are here to guide you through class selection to make sure you benefit from our courses, so feel free to contact us for any questions regarding class selection, registration issues, or if you need to transfer to a different session.

Cancellations

While we encourage you to make every effort to attend your registered class, we understand if your situation changes unexpectedly. Unfortunately, the same situation applies with our limited capacity. Therefore, students who need to cancel their registration for whatever reason within 72 hours prior to class scheduled start time will be also be assessed a 25% cancellation fee from any refund requested.

No-Call No-Shows

We really appreciate when people let us know they can't make a class, even if it's last minute. In some cases there may be a student on the waiting list that we can offer that seat to. No-shows are rather unhelpful for this cause, and so we charge a 50% fee* to transfer or refund a registration in the situation of a no-call no-show.   

Also, please note: 
  • Gift certificates are non-refundable 
  • Credits, promotional discounts, or any special arrangements will be one time per individual.

    Course Cancellation by BKC.
  • If less than 4 people are enrolled in a course we will cancel that class and offer students a full refund of the amount paid or a credit towards a new course within a month of the canceled course start date. 
  • BKC reserves the right to change instructors if needed without prior notice. 
  • If a class is cancelled because of weather conditions or illness of an instructor, BKC will schedule a make up session.

Generally this is a great course. You have a chance to put your hands on the whole B&W darkroom process, which is a great experience. However, the class is too short. I wished I had more time to practice and make more prints, but that would make it a two day class then.
