2023S, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 ECTS, 2.0 semester hours, course number S04277

Description

This course offers a theoretical and practical introduction to b/w photography: explanation of the physical and chemical basics of analogue b/w photography, an overview of materials and chemicals, introduction to common negative and positive developing processes and to the department's enlargers and developing machines. During the course of the semester we will go through the classic darkroom workflow from exposure and negative development to the preparation of prints and their post-processing.

No prior knowledge is required - the course will provide students with the necessary practice to be able to work independently on their projects in the workshop.
