What we're about

This group is to provide knowledge for the DIY photographer who want to develop their own film and gain more control over their photography.
If you've ever wanted to learn how to shoot film, or have been shooting film but want to learn how to develop your black and white, color, or slide film for yourself, this is the group for you! We also teach workshops on making your own black and white silver gelatin prints in a darkroom.
During our workshops, we will teach you proper darkroom/lab practices and arm you with the knowledge to take your art to the next level!

Intro to Black & White Film Developing

Safelight Labs

$75.00

Black & White Film Processing Workshop Learn how to load a roll of black and white film in to a SLR (single lens reflex) film camera, how to operate all of the dials and switches (aperture, shutter speed, ISO) and how to read the in-camera meter. We will then go out for a quick photo walk and shoot an entire roll of film in and around the downtown area of San Diego. Once each person has completed their roll of film, we will make our way back to the Safelight Labs development lab and learn how to develop your film by hand using the proper chemicals. Once the film has been developed and properly dried, we will scan the images on to a computer and you’re then able to share your results with your friends and family. Free roll of film included! Cost is $75 per person. Limit 5 people per workshop *Please be sure to bring your own USB flash drive or external hard drive to save your digitized photos to. Please visit www.safelightlabs.com and purchase your ticket there. RSVP'ing on Meetup won't guarantee you a spot until you purchase your spot. Please feel free to send us a message if you have any questions!
