Choose from Three Options

During the black-and-white crash course, students spend five hours studying aperture, shutter speed, and depth of field as they snap through a roll of film on a 35-millimeter camera. Instructors then guide them through processing film and obtaining negatives for printing in the studio’s on-site facilities. For a filmless, image-capturing experience, digital SLR courses cover menu navigation on the camera to make adjustments in aperture, shutter speed, and white balance as well as the process of reading histograms to evaluate pictures in the camera. Also within the digital arena, Photoshop classes offer an introductory glance into key tools and basic editing techniques before students click “print” and watch their images come to life on an Epson digital printer.

Photo Center NW will supply the course materials for each option.

Photo Center NW

When Photo Center NW was originally founded in the early 1980s it was known as the Exposure School of Photography. Since then it has undergone numerous transformations, some of which included becoming a nonprofit organization and an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Now standing as a mecca for students and creators in the Pacific Northwest art community, the center hosts regular exhibitions in addition to a robust curriculum of classes and workshops. Their faculty conducts 53-credit certification programs and 10-week courses within the facility’s four labs devoted to black-and-white and digital photography. The building also houses an immense reference library and plans to add a daylight studio and a playground for the cameras to relax in the very near future.
