Curious about film photography?

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

This workshop will cover the basic operation of a film camera, film processing and printing in the darkroom. 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.
