Landscape B&W Photography Workshop

(c) Monochrome Meath

Peter from Monochrome Meath emailed me asking us to let you know about an upcoming b+w workshop he is running on the weekend of September 16th. It sounds great! If you would like to attend then contact Peter through the Monochrome Meath website.

The following is his email:

“… I am delighted to confirm that the Landscape B&W Photography Workshop to be run in the Burren in county Clare is now set for 16th, 17th & 18th of September. The cost of the workshop is €185 per person. 

Taking you from the initial camera exposure, through development of the film and finishing with the print, this weekend workshop promises to be an unmissable event.

The workshop is designed to suit both beginners and advanced film photographers and caters for those shooting 35mm, medium format or large format. As well as scheduled demonstrations, I will be on-hand to assist each participant during the weekend, whatever level they are at.

 Three excursions into the beautiful Burren landscape and also on the coast of Galway Bay will be made during the weekend to practice various exposure techniques at different times of the day, with different lighting conditions. This will cover the following:

 Different metering techniques

Long exposures

Multiple exposures

Reciprocity considerations

Using Infrared films

 Having exposed your films, we will then use various film developing techniques such as:

 Stand development

Two-Bath Contrast Compensating development

Use of Staining developers.

 Printing techniques to be demonstrated and then used my each participant include:

 Split Grade Printing


Lith Printing


Coating of Liquid Emulsion on canvas & then printing on it.

 We will be based in Ballyvaughan which is just two kilometres from the Buren College of Art which is where our Darkroom facilities are located. Ballyvaughan is a lovely village located on the coast with lots of pubs and restaurants. All the locations we will be photographing are within a ten minute drive. I have negotiated a group rate for the highly recommended Logues Lodge Hotel. They are offering us a reduced bed and breakfast rate of €40 for single rooms en suite. The lodge serves meals all day and I have dinned there and found the food excellent.

 The college has two darkrooms equipped with excellent enlargers and facilities. There is a third room for film development which can be used at any time over the weekend. In fact, the darkrooms are open until 10pm each day which provides us with great opportunities to come and go as we please.

 The workshop will start at 4pm on the Friday and finish at 5pm on the Sunday.

 Places are limited and the hotel is holding rooms for the next week, so please let me know as soon as possible if you wish to attend this workshop. If anyone prefers to stay at an alternative hotel or B&B etc., then that’s perfectly fine.

 To book your place on the workshop, a deposit of €85 is required with the balance of €100 to be paid two weeks before the workshop. The special hotel rate of €40 per night can be paid on departure.

 Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. …”
