One-to-one Introduction to Colour Printing
Introduction to Colour Printing (1-to-1)
Many photographers prefer printing from colour-negative film because of its flexibility, simplicity, and superb reproduction of both subtle and vibrant colours. On this 1-to-1 printing workshop, you will learn how to produce colour photographs using the C-Type process and feel confident in the darkroom using specialist equipment.
Topics covered will include:
- Creating a contact sheet from a set of colour negatives
- How to make test strips from a negative and assess them
- How to correct colour casts’ using the enlarger’s colour filters
- Enlarging your negatives to produce colour prints.
We ask that you bring a set of colour negatives to work with; 35mm, 120 or 5×4 formats (please do not bring unprocessed film). We will supply the necessary chemicals and colour paper for printing.
Dates: Time: 10am-4pm (1 Day) Cost: £120
- 27th October (Saturday)
- 10th November (Saturday)
- 15th December (Saturday)
Note: Though not essential, we suggest that anyone doing the course should have some B&W darkroom experience. Ideally, you should be familiar with using an enlarger and working with light sensitive material.
Weekday Courses: Colour Darkroom courses can be arranged during the week. The course start date, length, and content can be tailored to suit the needs of individuals. To discuss this further, please contact Chris directly.
