Intro to Darkroom Processing with Disposable Cameras

Intro to Darkroom Processing with Lee Oscar Gomez

This workshop is an opportunity to explore your interests and curiosity towards the art of photographic film! We will experiment with 35mm black and white disposable film cameras, which we will deconstruct using darkroom chemicals & equipment to produce prints in the darkroom. We will also review terminology, techniques, and a brief history of photography to further expand our understanding of the darkroom process. All are welcome, including those who are new to photography as well as experienced printers!
