photographing and developing analogue
Almost anyone can take photos, but it's only in the darkroom that you really see who is creative! Above all, there is something magical about the process of making analog images. The size of the hand trigger can be selected individually and the contrasts can be finely controlled. Afterwards, the photographed reality slowly emerges in the developer bathroom, an exciting game of light and shadow in the almost dark room. But how do you actually get the perfect photo in black and white?
The young participants in the workshop first search for suitable motifs with an analog camera and then develop and dry their own film themselves in the darkroom. The negatives then form the starting material for your own prints, a selection is made, the right image section and suitable photo paper are selected. At the end, everyone holds their own personally printed photo in their hand - unique!
