ANALOG PHOTOGRAPHY

Go home each day with a project that sparks conversation about science and art.  Students have the opportunity to process their own black + white 35mm film using standard darkroom chemistry.  Participants take their images home digitally by digitizing them with their Smartphone.  We have also used Lomokinos, a motion picture film camera,  to create short movie!

MOBILE DARKROOM

Our students love the chance to get into one of our mobile darkrooms!  Participants can make a contact sheet of their negatives after scanning them into their Smartphones.  We talk about the different processes and how each type of image exists and functions uniquely. 

INTEGRATING HISTORY + SCIENCE

Double Exposure students experience science happen right before their eyes.  This program integrates photography in all its forms, but we have a soft spot for analog techniques because its such a fun way to learn about the history and evolution of photography. 

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY

re-DISCOVER PHOTOGRAPHY

The goal of Double Exposure is to provide the opportunity for students to experience photo history while they learn it.  We feel that showing youth the power of photography will help them make and share images more purpose and responsibility.  Our new and innovative lessons, highlight the history of photography, while incorporating the evolution of digital media.

STUDENT WORK

 
"I enjoyed developing my own film and making contact sheets because you appreciate photography more then when you just see an image right away."
