Advanced B&W Craft at Rayko Photo Center starting October 28th.

Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco will be holding an Advanced B&W Craft class starting on October 28th. Find the description below, and click here for registration information.
“This 7-week class will look at virtually every aspect of making the black and white photograph: film choice, exposure, film processing, printing, toning, matting and presentation. The purposes of this class are to refine and hone those technical skills, but also, and more importantly, to begin the process of selecting from those endless techniques what each photographer needs to establish a personal “craft” consistent with their own goals and temperament. This class will also include the instructor’s own simplification of the Zone System, which allows for the tonal condensation of extreme contrast situations into a printable negative. Through supervised printing, lectures and instructor demos, as well as critiquing of work, students will have a greater understanding of refining their darkroom techniques.”
