Following in the footsteps of great artists such as Man Ray, Georgia O'Keefe and Len Lye we will explore the concept of the camera-less photograph.
Utilising the darkroom and traditional black and white developing techniques we will understand objects as shadows, manipulate them in creative ways and create unique one of a kind photographic prints.
In this 3 hour introductory class participants will learn how to use a darkroom and safely make and develop photographic images on silver gelatine paper and explore several different photogram techniques.
- Introduction to black and white darkroom practice
- Basic photographic enlarger skills
- How to manipulate shadows and capture them in silver
- A comprehensive introduction to the Photogram
- Any semi transparent objects they may wish to explore
Casual clothing - Safe for darkroom chemistry
All ages and all skills
