Langara Photo-Imaging Program – Photo 1218 with Dave Scougal


Another post in an effort to digitize all of the work I did in the Langara Professional Photo-Imaging Program. You can see all the previous posts here. In the second semester of the program Photo 1218 focused on understanding flash exposure, film processing, and darkroom techniques. The assignments in this course were:

  • Contrast Control in Printing
  • Contrast Control in Film Processing
  • Flash Exposure
  • Push Processing
  • Flash Meter
  • Print Toning
  • Composition and Perspective
  • Painting with Strobe
  • Photo Accessory
  • Black and White Infrared
  • Slide Show
  • Lighting Diagrams
  • CP Operator and Lab Supervisor

Through this course I learned how to:

  • apply techniques of contrast control in film processing and/or printing
  • determine the benefits, liabilities and techniques of “push processing” using one set of recommended film/developer/speed conditions
  • establish a working guide number for any type of flash system and also be able to answer questions on the operation of electronic flash meters and dedicated flash units
  • find and produce examples of different aspects or elements of perspective and some of the principles of design as they are related to photographic composition
  • operate a quality controlled custom black and white film processing service
  • design and construct a piece of photographic equipment
  • conduct a lens comparison test
  • tone black and white prints
  • produce a good quality black and white infrared image
  • operate a digital camera and produce a digital print
  • understand the basics of digital imaging
  • navigate and us basic functions of Adobe Lightroom
  • assemble a simple digital slide show using software

Until the next binder…
