Colour developing is not a daunting process! It’s a quite straightforward process, especially once you learn all the tips and tricks of the trade in this 3-hour workshop! We’ll talk all about the chemistry behind colour developing, the best ways to control temperature in the darkroom and at home and how to shift your colours for troubleshooting and for effect. We’ll even explore how to cross-process using old slide films! You’ll get to develop your first colour or black and white C41 film on the night with the guidance of our experienced and knowledgeable tutor Robert Agostino.
By the end of the evening, you’ll be more than confident with the simple and fool-proof C41 (colour) process andt start shooting more C41 and developing the films by yourself!
Darkroom experience is helpful, but this workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to learn! Don’t forget to bring along an exposed C-41 (colour) roll of 35mm film.
As always when working in the darkroom we do recommend you wear long sleeves and long pants, while covered shoes are mandatory. All other protective gear such as gloves, eye masks and protective aprons will be provided.
