  • Portland State University Portland, Oregon (map)

Channel your inner Ansel Adams.


Will you be the next Ansel Adams or Dorthea Lange? Experience the magic of black and white photography from start to finish: shoot the image, develop the negative and print your photograph. Learn composition and lighting techniques for creating a good negative. Explore camera basics including f-stop, shutter speed and exposure. See your surroundings through a photographer's keen eye during walking field trips as you develop your individual style. In the darkroom, learn how to develop negatives and make prints, experiment with exposure, contrast, filters and paper. Explore the many different effects that can be achieved with a single negative. Choose your best photographs to develop into prints for your portfolio or for display.
