Alternative Processing Techniques

An adventure into the outer boundaries of film processing! Working with small, five-foot strips of 16mm film, students will conduct a number of experiments designed to explore the full range of creative possibilities in photographic processing. Techniques explored will include: solarizing, color toning & tinting, extreme push/pull processing, cross-processing, selective development, chemical applications, and custom-made developers. Following the first sessions, students will begin to devise their own experiments and work towards completing a final project. Finished films will be presented after the conclusion of the course at our student screening.
