Melvin Cambettie Davies, a leading name in photographic printing is now inviting you into his custom-built De Beauvoir studio to take part in Black and White Printing Workshops. This is a hands-on workshop for photographers at any level, who would like to learn to create their own silver gelatin prints on fibre-based paper to fine art exhibition quality standards.
Workshops are limited to maximum of 2 students per day so can be catered to any ability from beginner upwards, and each day can be adjusted to your needs and will allow more time for discussions and one-on-one guidance.
During the workshop you will learn to:
- Evaluate a negative and understand the relationship between exposure and development
- Understand and use a variety of printing techniques including pre-flash, post-flash and split toning
- Create your own exhibition quality fibre-based silver gelatin prints up to size 16"x12"
- Retouch and Spot prints
All materials will be supplied, just bring along some black and white negatives to print from (35mm up to 10x8), and by the end of the day you will have a selection of exhibition quality prints to take home.
