The Black and White Day is a Photography workshop to experience the traditionnal analog Photography.

This workshop is composed of a party of 3 to 5 participants led by a Professor who will help student from a beginner to a medium level to improve their skills in the different fields seen through the day.
This session is dedicated to the 35mm format, we recomend using a mechanical reflex film camera (Nikkormat, Canon FTB, Minolta SRT, Pentax K1000...) if you don't own a film camera or your camera doesn't suit our recommendations we can lend you a film camera for the day (free of charge). All the supplies needed for the day are included in the price: a black and white film Ilford HP5 35mm 24 exposures, the storage sheet, film chemistries, photo papers RC and paper chemistries.
The day is split in three parts:
- Start at 9h00: The participants and the Professort meet at our café "La limonade de Marinette" 46, rue Saint Georges 69005, the workshop starts with the introduction of the day and the checking and explanation of the equipment needed and used during the day.
The group will then leave to start shooting their film (inside, outside, portrait, architecture, street, landscapes...) this part of the day is meant to discover the practice and theory of shooting film.
- 11h00: The group arrives at our Shop Laboratory at the 13, rue de la Bombarde 69005 to end the shooting part and initiate the developpment part of the day of the films shot during the morning. The Professor handles the developpment of the participants' films in front of the students by showing them the use and theory of this step. During developpment students will be given blank film to practice film spooling, the usage of a developping tank and use of the chemistry. The developpment part of the day will end with the films being dried and stored for a moment, this will give the participants a break to lunch. (Lunch isn't included in the price).
- 14h00: After the lunch break the films are dried and ready to handle, the day will follow with the discovery of the darkroom. The Professor produces in front of the students a traditionnal contact sheet for each participant. This will show you for the first time your pictures shot during the morning. You will then choose one picture and experiment enlarging it on RC paper (format 18*24cm). You will discover the magic of the darkroom with your own image appearing in front of your eyes.
The day will end around 18h00, you will have discovered the three steps of the analog photograpy: shoot, developp and print!
