    Techniques for Film exposure and development

    July 21-24 2007 Tuition $140. Limited to 10 students​

    Exposure and development present many challenges for film photographers, yet
    a properly exposed and developed negative is prerequisite for optimum print
    quality. Well-exposed and developed negatives also make printing much
    easier, faster and less costly. In this workshop, we will begin by
    calibrating our light meters and learning how to establish personal ISO film
    speeds. Building on this foundation, we will explore simple, reliable
    techniques for determining the optimum exposure for virtually all lighting
    conditions and subject matter. Next we will go on a field trip to expose
    negatives, then into the darkroom to learn development techniques for
    perfect negatives. Our film will be processed in WD2D+ , a superb
    pyrogallol-based developer.


    This workshop is open to anyone with a film camera from 35mm to 4x5. It is
    suitable not only for those with previous experience who want to refine
    their skills, but for those who are ready to learn the classic joys of using
    film. Each participant will be encouraged to bring and use their own
    developing tanks.


    John Wimberley has photographed in black and white for 41 years. In the
    1970's he introduced the first pyrogallol developer for modern films, and is
    widely considered to be one of the finest living black and white printers in
    the world. On the occasion of his first one-man show in 1973, Artweek
    Magazine noted: "His prints are not merely technically correct, but
    wonderfully alive." John has been called "One of America's preeminent
    landscape photographers", and his work has been extensively published and
    exhibited around the world.
