This will be the first darkroom class in LACP’s new space. The class will meet four times in the classroom over a three-month time period. During the first month, each student will get a three-hour private lesson in the darkroom with instructor Marc Valesella. During the next two months, students can book as many hours as needed in the darkroom. LACP’s new darkroom is designed for solo use.

There will be four lectures & critiques in total — one at the beginning of the three-month period, one at the end, and two in between darkroom sessions. Students will learn proper printing practices, from the developer to the stop bath to the fixer, as well as how to burn and dodge, add or subtract contrast, and how to mix chemicals. Lectures will include information about various paper choices and sizes, archival methods, and how to flatten and retouch fiber base prints.

During one of the four classroom sessions, LACP executive director Julia Dean will join you for the first hour to tell you about her one-year apprenticeship with pioneering photographer Berenice Abbott in 1978. Berenice was 80 at the time.

On the last evening, each student will show all the prints they made during this class. If time permits, Marc will discuss more advanced printing techniques.
