We also saw some rare photos of movie stars and next to each photo was the original camera used to take the photo. All students got passes to see rare old films in the GEH Dryden Theater in the evening.
Sheer torture. I agree.
Every student coated and processed their own paper and took prints and unexposed paper home with them. We had 2 teams that made two batches of emulsion and then they prepped the 3 contrast grades.
There was lots of classroom instruction and the huge booklet on the history of analog emulsions and coating that Mark prepared for us was a treasure. He certainly was able to give us an overview of the entire early history of analog Silver Gelatin. The book includes drawings of some of George Eastman's earliest coating machines.
