Space is limited to six participants. Be sure to wear old clothes, just in case of spills.
Have Fun With Darkroom Enlarging by Douglas Carr Cunningham

Coming on the heels of The Mystery of Pinhole Camera Photography week-long workshop, students will have fun making larger prints from black and white negatives. Campers will shoot, process and print 35mm film the first day! Campers then will learn about the art of photo-editing using physical photographic enlargers, light-sensitive paper, safe chemicals, and water. Each camper will receive individualized attention throughout the week as she learns about the dynamic printing process and reasons why heritage photography is an artist’s craft. Each 8×10 photo created will be unique, finished and ready to take home. Space is limited to six. Participants are advised to wear old clothes, just in case of spills.
