B&W Film Photography

E5 Process Coronavirus Information


Black & White Weekender

This course would suit both beginners to B&W film photography, or those who wish to refresh or enhance their skills. Over the 2 days you will learn essential  darkroom techniques, such as black & white film development, printing, production of a contact sheet, and toning prints.

During the first day you will concentrate on getting the fundamentals right; from developing a B&W film and making a contact sheet from your negatives, through to a finished B&W print. The second day will be about developing darkroom skills further; you will be encouraged to experiment with different print papers and filters to adjust contrast, learn to ’burn & dodge individual parts of your image, and explore the use of colour toners to enhance mood.  By the end of the course you will have several prints, lots of mistakes and experiments, and a keen eye with which to continue your practice.

Note: We ask that you bring a B&W film that you have previously shot or a set of B&W negatives (35mm, 120 or 5×4 formats) to work with, although we can supply you with a camera and a film on the day to generate a set of negatives should you need them. We will supply the necessary chemicals and paper for printing
