Dates: June 1 & 2, 8 & 9, 2019
Two Weekends (Saturday & Sunday)
10 AM - 6 PM

Attendees will learn how to load paper into our 8x10” cameras to shoot both black and white direct positives and onto color negative paper. Time will be spent both shooting on site-specific locations such as Madison Square Park, on our roof deck, and in our daylight studios. Black and white images will be processed by hand in our darkroom while LTI Lightside process color images. 

Our 8x10” cameras can be rented throughout the week so participants can continue practicing their technique preparing them for the second weekend where John will provide feedback. Group critiques, questions, and experimentation will be explored.
