Resources For Photography Teachers
Many high schools offer photography classes, and many of them still teach black and white film and darkroom work. In an age when film photography has become a purely artistic medium (commercial work is now almost all digital), students are forunate that so many of our schools allow them to learn traditional photography with hand-processed film and handmade silver-based printing.
Most schools, outside of well-funded big-city and suburban districts, assign their art teacher to teach the photography classes. Some art teachers have never done extensive work in photography, and many younger teachers have mainly worked with digital cameras and Photoshop.
I have taught several high school photo teachers how to process B&W Film and make prints in the darkroom, and I have helped them choose film, paper, chemicals, and equipment best suited to a school environment. Many of the lesson plans, technical handouts, and other class materials that I have prepared are available for you to read and download. I offer personal lessons and consulting to schools and teachers located within driving distance of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
