    8x10 Format
    You will learn to make 8x10 black & white photographs on silver gelatin photographic papers in a traditional “wet” darkroom. You will mix photographic chemistry, lay out your processing steps and expose photographic paper using a variable contrast printing system to create black & white photographs. If you haven't done so already you will start by making a “contact sheet” to better view your negatives, then use the contact sheet to select a negative suitable for printing.
    You will use variable contrast papers and expose and develop your photograph. You will learn a systematic way to arrive at your preferred exposure using variable contrast filtration. You will evaluate your work to refine and improve results. You will learn to “dodge & burn”, use filters, paper flashing, and other techniques to affect your results. You will learn bleach & redevelopment and toning techniques to refine your prints and improve their archival stability. You will leave with quality black & white prints suitable for framing.
