Printing and Processing

February 11, ICP at THE POINT Wednesday Teen Class: This is already our fourth class of the winter semester.  After looking at and analyzing some amazing images in our visual presentation, we focused on printing our first photos in the black-and white-darkroom. Since we made contact sheets last week, we were able to edit our work and make a selection of images we wanted to print on 8×10 paper.
