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. 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 1 – Friday April 15th at 12:00pm (deadline for sign up is April 14th)

Black and White Processing Series 2 – Wednesday April 20th at 2:00pm (deadline for sign up is April 19th)

Black and White Darkroom Series 1 – Friday April 22nd at 12:00pm (must have attended developing series 1)

Black and White Darkroom Series 2 – Wednesday April 27th at 2:00pm (must have attended developing series 2)

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