The Medium Format Film Camera Workshop – everything you need about developing and printing your films. This workshop places the emphasis on loading and working with a medium format film camera. It builds on the Black and White Film Developing Workshop with the afternoon spent printing in the darkroom from the negatives made that morning.

During this 6 hour workshop you will:

  • receive the benefit of decades of professional practice with the benefit of one to one guidance
  • take a walk through the Canning River Regional Park exploring the river-landscape, making photographs on film using one of our beautiful medium format film cameras – or you are welcome to bring your own!
  • learn how to load your exposed film into a daylight film developing tank
  • process your black and white film to a professional standard
  • dry, cut, and sleeve and your negatives into archival protective sleeves ready for your scanner
  • create a contact print of your negatives
  • with guidance choose one of your negatives to print
  • learn the techniques of determining correct print exposure
  • learn how to select print contrast
  • make test strips
  • use burning and dodging controls
  • make a silver gelatin print

At the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • develop your own medium format films
  • select appropriate film developing equipment to suit your needs
  • make contact prints
  • make traditional silver prints
  • select appropriate darkroom gear to suit your requirements
  • know where to easily find additional help and tips
  • take home your developed negatives and prints!

I offer a range of individually guided film-based photography and darkroom printing workshops to suit both beginner and advanced practitioners. You can view the current workshops on my Workshops page.
