Chris Reid, director Blanco Negro Custom Black & White Pro Lab has been printing since 1989. His passion for black and white printing and darkroom skills shows in the quality of his work. He is in high demand from both commercial photographers and the photographic artist.
His work has been seen in many galleries across Sydney including the National Gallery of NSW. Chris's unique way of imparting knowledge gives a great deal pleasure and success to his students.

Over two days you will learn negative assessment for fine prints, procedures for creative printing including paper stocks (F.B.) & developer combinations, pre-flashing & split contrast control & how to create a "look/feel" for their images with the use of pre-visualization.
