The Basics of Analog Photography | Level 2: Develop it

With analog film — exposure doesn’t stop inside the camera. Once you’ve grasped the basics of shooting film, it’s time to take back control of a crucial step of the process: chemical development and scanning. 

Is having a lab develop your rolls getting too expensive? This workshop will teach you everything you need to know to get started with developing and scanning film by yourself: no darkroom required! 

From timing, chemical composition, temperature, and more — we’ll teach you everything that goes into film processing, both theoretically and practically. You’ll actually shoot, develop, and scan your complimentary roll of film under the guidance of our experienced instructors, alongside other likeminded film-heads in this fun-filled course.

What's included? 

• 4.5 hours
• Kentmere 35mm B&W Film to shoot and develop during the workshop
• Chemicals (Developer, Stopper, Fixing, Wetting Agent)
• Photowalk

  • Intermediate
  • Available
  • Inventory on the way

• Introduction to Film Developing
• History of Developing Film
• Traditional Method of Developing
• Alternative Development Processes
• Using a Standardized Kit
• Flatbed Scanning

Suitable for those who have completed our The Basics of Analog Photography: Analog Level 1 workshop.

You should have a thorough understanding of ISO, aperture and shutter speed and how all of these relate to each other to achieve an ideal exposure.
