Gowanus Darkroom Teen Film Photography Program is a chance for young students to immerse themselves in analog photographic techniques. Students meet once a week at Gowanus Darkroom where they learn to manually expose their photographs, process film and to make black and white prints from their negatives. This class will combine hands-on tutorials with a workshop environment. In addition to the technical aspects of photography, students will gain an understanding of photography in a historical context. This program encourages students to use photography as a way of observing the world around them and to express their personal vision.

What to expect:

  • Guided field photography around the Gowanus neighborhood (2nd - 4th Avenues in Gowanus and Park Slope).
  • Introduction to notable photographers throughout art history within the last 150 years.
  • Step by step procedures on film processing and darkroom printing.
  • Specialized assistance in technical and artistic vision.
  • Creating and taking home beautiful black and white prints and photographic negatives.
  • A final gallery showing of all the work created during the course.

Students should bring:

A 35mm or 120mm film camera. Gowanus Darkroom will provide all chemistry, film, and paper. If any students need to rent a camera, please contact us.
