SU16 Independent Study in Photography

Photography students who enroll in Independent Study are granted access to the SAA darkroom to work independently, without guidance, outside of scheduled class time. Access to the SAA darkroom includes equipment and selected chemicals for black-and-white film developing and printing is provided. Color use is not included. Students supply film and paper. The expectation for the Independent Studio user is that they aid in maintaining the studio and assist in mixing chemicals.

*Course supplies: You will need to supply your own film and paper.
