About This Class

In this class Andre D. Wagner will take you step by step in the process of developing your own black and white film. Wagner discusses the materials needed to complete the process and hopes you will share your outcome with a class project. Students will learn how to mix chemicals, agitate, wash, fix, and dry film. This is an intermediate level based course due to the fact that students will have to shoot a roll of 35mm or 120mm film prior to completing the class project. If you’re a photographer that drops your black and white film off at a lab to be processed, or just curious about the film developing process and have been thinking about giving it a shot, this class is for you.

Excellent for those who want to learn how depevelop their own black and white film. It will cost you less than send it to a photo lab and you will have more control on your films.
I learned lots of tricks in this class! Very good if you want to enter in this fascinating world of analogic photography.
Liked the class! It is about the basics of film development and a good starting point for further experiments. I really appreciate the interaction of Andrew with the students, too. Thanks :)
