About This Class

About This Class

Take a look at an alternative way to develop a film as a source of inspiration or ideas to create a new photography project.

In this class you will learn to develop a film using a survival technique. You will be using common household materials: coffee and washing soda.


Students of all levels are welcome to experiment and submit projects. A working knowledge in photography may be helpful, but is not required.
