Color Darkroom 101

This Analog Color Darkroom workshop is for anyone interested in learning about creating color prints in a traditional color darkroom. The course focuses on the 12 basic steps of color printing from choosing the best negative to creating your final 8×10” print. You will learn how to judge the best negative and how to print test strips to analyze for color and density. You will be printing and critiquing your own final 8×10” print. Included in this course will be instruction for using the darkroom enlarger and the Kreonite processing machine. Additionally, you will learn the important procedures for using filters in the darkroom to alter the color of your print.
