summer creative camps

B&W Photography for teens

With its rich tones and subtle gradients, film photography continues to inspire generations of photographers. Join instructor Allison Lackner in one of the region’s best black-and-white photography studios.

This weeklong camp will cover the basic operation of a film camera, film processing, and printing in the darkroom—as well as style, lighting, and composition.  You’ll shoot a roll of black & white film, process film and use the darkroom to print  negatives. After this one-day workshop, you will have the skills needed to take part in ahha’s Open Studios program.

  • Please bring a 35mm camera if you have one.
  • All other materials provided.
