Classic Darkroom

Collection of prints made directly from film negatives. Here also, I’ve posted some notes about film, film processing, photographic papers and basics of how to make silver halide prints in darkroom.

I teach print toning through the School of the Photographic Arts (SPAO), in Ottawa. I provide tutoring in printing and toning through SPAO and the Ottawa School of Art.
