Leave your digital camera & Photoshop at home and experience the thrill of watching a photograph emerge from blank paper to image. Traditional black and white photography has volumes to teach photographers about the basics of what makes an excellent photograph including; the relationship between light and image, seeing qualities of light, developing an eye for composition, and learning to control print quality. Learn from artist Ruth Kaplan how to shoot, develop and print B&W photographs. This course is designed for beginners, as well as those interested in brushing up on their skills. Students are required to bring a working manual 35mm film camera.
