With a little investment, you can easily develop your own 35mm or 120mm black and white film at home. It will be more cost effective and typically provides better results.

Bring (2) rolls of exposed film (same film type and speed) to the class. We’ll methodically go through the chemical process to develop your negatives. As they are drying, we’ll discuss film developing theory in more detail, negative storage, film scanners, printing options and more.

You’ll receive very detailed, step by step film developing instructions that you can use at home, along with a thorough list of supplies you would need to purchase.

Workshop includes a lunch break (participants provide their own) from 1:15 to 2 p.m.
