Darkroom Workshop

This one day darkroom workshop provides an introduction to black and white film photography and darkroom techniques. The objective is to give you a good grounding and a base from which you can grow and develop with the confidence to experiment on your own. It is so important to learn how to assess the correct exposure of a shot so that each exposure on your film roll is accurate, this will make contact sheet printing easier giving you the best opportunity of making life as simple as possible in the printing stage. Keith will teach you how to process your black and white film and produce a contact sheet to complete this darkroom workshop.

Price for the day £125 inclusive of film, papers and chemistry.

What you’ll learn

The workshop runs from 10am to 4pm. After introductions and a coffee we will go to Saltburn by the Sea to shoot 1 roll of Ilford black and white film. You will learn how to assess the correct exposure using a hand held light meter rather than the camera’s light meter and the reasons why. We will then return back to the darkroom where you will be shown how to process your own film. You will learn about the chemistry and the techniques of how to process your film.

After lunch you will create your own contact sheet using Ilford Multigrade RC paper.

Keith will also give you a greater understanding of what can be achieved using different chemistry timings and temperature. You will leave with your film processed and a contact sheet.

We use only the very best Ilford film, chemistry and papers in our workshops, and keep our workshops to a maximum of three people which allows plenty of one to one time with Keith.

“The artisan art of analogue black and white photography is a beautiful, engaging process taking you on an addictive path to expressing yourself and creating an individual piece of art.” Keith Moss.
