Na, you're alright; I'm sure you haven't deserved a banning. thumb.gif I'm referring to some seriously incorrigible members. One in particular (not the one whose thread was just closed. Bernie, you know who! wink.gif) starts an argument and flame war with nearly every thread and post hemakes and is entirely unapologetic.

LOL, maybe, but it is entertaining at some level.

10-15 rolls of film (he wants us to essentially shoot close to a roll a week for the whole semester)
1 25-sheet box of 8x10 glossy or pearl finish multigraded RC paper for proof sheets
1 100-sheet box of 5x7 of the same for prints
Matte board
Grey card

EDIT: He strongly recommends Ilford paper and either Ilford or Kodak film, although he says after the first few projects we can try stuff out that sounds interesting.

Jelly. Wish I had the wherewithal and time to take a photography class just for the hell of it.

Yeah, seems like a nice course. We're learning how to dev and print our own B&W through various technical and creative exercises. I figure that I have ~9 or 10 courses to take before I graduate, so might as well take a few studio photography classes as open electives. Instructor is really chill, definitely an old hippy, but he seems to be a good guy as a lot of the work from his past students was pretty intriguing, actually.

Apparently we used to have a color darkroom course, but they discontinued it after a few students had a few nasty chemical burns. Kinda entertaining, actually, as this semester in my materials lab I'll be casting aluminum and steel and then etching them in hot concentrated solutions of nitric, hydrochloric, and acetic acid. Thankfully we're not allowed to use HF as undergrads. That stuff will ruin your day...

If your instructor is cool about it, see about getting a 50 sheet of 8x10 and only 50 sheet 5x7. I loved printing on 8x10; 5x7 seemed so small every time i printed on it. If you figure 20 contact sheets (dunno your experience level in printing; assuming you may mess up at least 1 or 2) that would only leave you 5 8x10 sheets for nice prints if you only got 25. And i guarantee you will print shots multiple times until you get it just how you want it. IMO, a 50 sheet of 8x10 is the way to go.

Definitely have a lot of matte board. It has tons of uses. Make sure it is black though. One great use in particular is that it can be very helpful for dodging and buring funny shapes. I had some photos i needed to dodge/burn that i used matte board to make shapes to match and it worked extremely well. Hopefully your instructor teaches you how to do it properly. Otherwise you can ask me; it's actually pretty simple.thumb.gif

Grey card, i never used one and did pretty well. wink.gif

As for film; definitely experiment. Find what you like and go from there.

For paper, i used Ilford for black & white, and Kodak for color. I was very happy with my results i got from them respectively.

Still pretty cheap. My friend had to get a like 4 100 pack of Ilford Multigrade IV Deluxe 8x10 and the local camera stores carries them for about $80 a pack. Then a ton of Ilford film.

Well, he says for this course we only need the 8x10 for contact sheets, and for our actual projects it has to be on 5x7. He also wants white matte board as we're doing dry mounts of our prints when we hand them in.

I've never developed my own film and prints before, so this will be a learning experience. In fact, none of the class has done it before.
