This course does not have regular class meetings and is for students who have prior darkroom experience developing film and making prints. Students may take this course more than once. Completion of a MIT Arts Studios darkroom course or permission of the instructor is required. Please contact the instructor if you’re unsure whether you have the prerequisite experience.

35mm, 120 and 4×5 format cameras will be available for check-out to students on a weekly check-out basis. Students must provide their own film and paper. Darkroom chemistry is provided.

There will be two optional meetings during the term to share and critique ideas and prints. The dates and times of these meetings will be scheduled based on student availability after the start of the term.
