Photography II - Advanced

Explore the traditional art of 35mm black and white photography. Get to use the Dark Room to be hands on and develop and process your very own film. These are the “old” cameras that you put your own film into and use the light meter to create the exposures. Take that film and put it in our enlargers to make the print, put that into chemicals and your photo magically appears.
