A 2-Day Class
Saturdays, February 25th and March 4th
This course serves as an introduction to the basics of black and white 35mm photography. Over the two day workshop, students will learn how to use a 35mm camera, load, expose and develop film, as well as how make prints in the darkroom. Day one covers all the camera basics, a photo walk, and film development. Day two introduces students to enlarging and printing photos in the darkroom.
Nate Ely has a BFA in studio art from SUNY at Buffalo and a BA in film/photography from Binghamton University. Nate has taught photography at Buffalo State, D’Youville, and UB since 2017. The particular focus of his work is in traditional/experimental photography.
Supplies are included. Students are recommended to have their own, tested and fully functional 35mm camera with full manual controls for the class. CEPA does have a limited number of 35mm cameras available to rent.
Please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about your camera or to arrange a camera rental.
