SU16 Wednesday Intro to Black & White Analog Photography

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”  -Hanri Cartier-Bresson

Black and white analog photography is a fun and classic medium to work with. During the semester students will learn the process of taking successful photographs (with a 35mm analog camera) as well as how to use the black and white darkroom. Different photographers will be look to for visual inspiration and technique.  Students do not need to own a camera to take the class-the SAA has a limited number of cameras that students can borrow, and is first come, first served.

Materials will be discussed the first day of class and are needed for the second class meeting

  1. One box of RC multigrade black and white photo paper, 8 x 10 N finish (pearl)
  2. Several rolls of film to start (HP5 or Kodax T-max or Tri-x).
  3. A box or 3 ring binder to store negatives

Places to buy materials:

Hunts photo and video-There is a Hunt’s in Cambridge and one near Kenmore Square.

B&H and K&M are also good resources in NYC that allow you to order online.
