In continuing with our commitment to promote and enhance traditional  and timeless photographic printing techniques, we are adding informative, hands-on workshops to our repertoire. Beginning  in the summer of 2013 we will be offering our first photographic workshops designed to thoroughly immerse participants in the process of printing their own fine art silver gelatin prints.  Few things are as exciting as making your own prints by hand, and we will be providing just such an opportunity.
Our facilities provide an excellent space for printing, critiquing, classroom discussion, and simple casual conversation about photography. We have two darkroom spaces with several enlargers to print from 35mm up to 8×10 formats, as well as a separate darkroom for processing film.  Our course offerings range from basic techniques in silver gelatin printmaking, to more advanced knowledge and practices, and other alternative printing processes. Our objectives for these workshops is to impart a better understanding of three main concepts:

Insight ~  Composition, traditional versus digital processes, uniqueness of Black & White printing.

Inspiration ~  Critique, sharing our work with one another, discussion, etc.

Instruments ~ Printing techniques, tools and their uses, manipulation techniques to achieve certain results.
