Discover the photogram, create your own transparency negatives and dabble with montage. Our Darkroom Photography course is the place for students to experience photography as a process subject to the human hand, and develop an understanding of light, time and the very necessary kindling of your creative intuition in relation to the materials you work with.

“I would say this course is a good compliment to B&W photography course, as one leads to another. If you are a photographer you MUST join this course and learn where it all started (if you didn’t yet).
You will expand your vision of creativity and sense of hand-making crafts/photos by playing with different materials that you wouldn’t think of! not with Photoshop. Put your pics on acetate paper and give your digital pictures a new and unique life!”
