This simple class will take place in 2 stages. In the first half we will learn how to load and use our individual cameras before heading out on a 'Photo Walk' through surrounding Coburg. During this walk all participants will be able to 'shoot' a roll of black and white film with ongoing support and advice from our tutor who will aim to tailor knowledge to each indicvidual skill level.

In the second half of the class, back at NOIR Darkroom in pairs participants will learn how to develp thier own films in the darkroom. From rolling films into a developing tank in a pitch black room, to seeing their images appear in the silver coating on the film, this part of the class is really unique.
