More Film Proficiencies!

We will be offering another series of black and white film proficiencies during week 6 so if you couldn’t make the others, be sure to stop into photoland to sign up! This will likely be the last proficiency series for the quarter so sign up while you can!

These film proficiencies will still take place in two parts. The first part of the series is black and white film processing (you’ll need to bring an exposed roll of 35mm black and white film to this one!) and the second part is black and white printing. You can only be a part of the black and white printing proficiency if you have already completed the processing proficiency. There are only 6 spots available in each session and you will need to sign up in advance with Photoland staff. Dates for the series are as follows:

Black and White Processing Series 3: Friday May 6th, 2022 at 11:00am (Deadline to sign up is May 5th)

Black and White Darkroom Series 3: Friday May 13th, 2022 at 11:00am (must have attended developing series 3)

If you have any questions regarding the proficiencies or about using the space, please email us at photolandstaff@evergreen.edu or call us during open hours at (360)867-6274.

Photoland welcomes back all students, faculty, and staff!

Are you interested in learning how to process your own film and print your images in the darkroom? Maybe you have a backlog of unprocessed film shot during the pandemic? Photoland will be running black and white film proficiencies again this quarter! Once you have completed the proficiency, you can work in Photoland during designated open hours.

These film proficiencies will take place in two parts. The first part of the series is black and white film processing (you’ll need to bring an exposed roll of black and white film to this one!) and the second part is black and white printing; you can only be a part of the black and white printing proficiency if you have already completed the processing proficiency.
