Darkroom & Film Academy


Depending on each student’s level of experience, students will be assigned darkroom work for both AP and IB. 

For those who have taken Photo One/Two in normal conditions (as opposed to distance learning in the pandemic), those students have to option to be assistants to Mr. Lindroth in helping students learn shooting in film and working in the darkroom.  All other students with no experience will have certain tasks to complete.

Task One: Shoot two rolls of film and develop both contact sheets and two prints from each roll

 

Contact sheets and prints must be scanned digitally.  All photos must be touched up on Photoshop.  Your Google Photos album must contain the prints before the edit, images open in Photoshop with layers showing, and the final edited version of each print.  The album must also have the contact sheet.

Sample Album

You will be trained how to do all film and darkroom work via live teaching.  This cannot be taught with video tutorials.  These tutorials posted here are for reinforment and review.

 

Task Two: Produce Prints that apply techniques only achievable in the darkroom.  The number you are assigned is TBD
