This course is aimed at students who wish to advance their technical and creative skills through traditional black and white film photography and further develop darkroom techniques involved in film processing and making photographic prints. Students are required to approach their analogue photography practice in a creative, explorative, and analytical manner. Students explore and develop their ideas through a chosen project and are required to make informed artistic choices when using analogue cameras and studio lighting, developing film and making prints in the darkroom.
