This intensive darkroom course allows students to pursue work of their own choosing while learning advanced controls for black-and-white printing. The emphasis is on gaining the skills to make your prints look exactly as you want them to. Topics to be covered include local and overall contrast controls, toning for impact and for archival quaility, masking and differential exposure, multiple printing, choices of paper tonality and surface, and the differences between condenser and cold-light printing. Students will work with their own negatives, which should be developed outside of class time.
