                                PHIL’S PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAM 2017

I recently had a discussion with an elder about the lost art of what everyone can relate to known as photography. This conversation shared the joys that we both have had over our years in this profession.  We discussed how it would be befitting to create a program to allow our youth the pleasure that we have received from this profession and in doing so we share our wealth of knowledge that we have accumulated throughout our years of shooting. We can foresee this to be a catalyst that could ignite a new found passion in creating photos the Classic Way.  This would have a tsunami effect on our youth and adults being analogous awakened. In this introverted society our new technological advances causes us to live in an isolated world that is yet connected.

  I believe that our millennia’s are more interested in the nostalgic life styles and fads of the past than generation X. We are now experiencing a new found interest in vinyl records, walkman’s, black and white photos and 8 track tape players, e.g.

The goal of this program is to bring black and white photos and hand tinting photos back in the main stream of our culture again.  With the smart phones and computers, this magnificent art has been lost due to the quality of digital photos.  Therefore, I have proposed to continue assisting students and even young adults with learning the art of photography the Classic Way. 

“The first unspoken language known to all men, but is universally understood all over the world is photography”. PJP 1996  It is vital that we not forget the old arts of the past.  With the program that I would like to develop students would learn the basic art of analog photography.  The youth will have an opportunity to learn analog photography using 35mm and middle format of cameras. Students will also learn how to develop, print and hand tint black and white photos 

I would like to start a movement of youth that will learn the art of analog photography using 35mm and middle format cameras.  I will also teach each student how to recycle old negatives that are sitting around in some shoe box into prints. Students will learn how to develop a black and white photo in the dark room and how to tone the final print. I will demonstrate some of the special techniques of “dodging and burning” that the Great Ansel Adams used to create his award winning photos in his darkroom. 

        Through the daily curriculum that will last two weeks per group, the youth will be provided a camera and needed materials for the course. to assist them with understanding photography; including, recycling old negatives that are probably lying around their homes; and learning how to develop black and white photos in the dark room; and how to tone the final print. Each student will learn about the different types toners that can be applied photo before the hand tinting process. For
example a few types of tones include selenium, sepia, gold, copper, platinum-paladin, tea, nickel, antique and coffee.

        The goal of this program is to bring hand tinting photos back in the main stream of our culture again.  With the smart phones and computers soft ware that is available on the shelf has caused a dramatic decline in the interest of film, the art of hand tinting photos has been lost. This movement will work as follows:

Process in recruiting

-Applications will be distributed to schools, libraries, local after school programs.
        -Applications will include: a photo that is heartfelt to the student with an essay describing why this photo is meaningful.  It will also include an application for parents and youth to complete.  Because this is a novel program, I will have a rubric that will be based on a point system to select students that would be ideal for the program.

The cost for each student is about $250.00

-The owner and founder of the movement; Phillip Jones will prepare tables during children events and other festivals to recruit.
-Decisions will be made three months before the start of the program.
        -This will allow all purchases to be made and final set-up to be made for the students.

Weekly Agenda

The youth will be broken down in four sections.  Each section will meet for two weeks for 2 hours per session. 
Section 1- M-F- 8am-10am
Section 2 M-F- 11am-1pm
Section 3 M-F- 2pm-4pm
Section 4 M-F- 6pm-8pm

Each section will hold a max of 10 youth.  Each youth will have their own camera and packet of study information.

Monday (1st session)- Introduction of workshop; students will be given all materials they need.

Tuesday – How film works.
Wednesday- Camera Settings
Thursday- Balance and proportion
Friday- Lighting

Week 2

Curriculum- the Curriculum will include easy to follow lesson plans for each students. All sections are self paced to allow each student to have more freedom to advance.

This curriculum provides parents, students, community, and sponsors a guide to our program. 
Expected Outcome:
Assessments Used:

Objective: To introduce students to the lost art. To provide equipment and material to students.

Expected Outcome:  Students will learn the basics of analog photography. Knowledge of the film and black and white prints.  Students will learn the difference between digital and analog photography.

Assessments Used: Questions and answers session  and an open forum that allow students to work together in pairs to discuss things we learn as a group.

Materials Required:  Camera, print material, and curriculum

Break down of how funds will be used:

  • Cameras

Currently own 5 35mm cameras with lens, I would like to purchase 10 additional used cameras.  Cost would be around $250.00

  • D-76 developer for 1000 photos at 8 x 10. Will bulk purchase.

  • Ilford double weight matt fiber black and white photo paper for 100 students. Would need 1000,  8 x 10 photos.  Cost around $2700.00

  • Would like to purchase 5 Bessler B/W enlargers with accessories. Cost around $400. 00

  • Transportation cost would be minimal; all classes are taught on the premises.

Total cost for materials are about $7200.00
5th-Nov-2009 10:31 pm - Hand Tinted Black and Photo Art.
hand tinted photos, black and white photo, portraits

I have found a technique that allows me to add
metallic colors to my hand tinted black and white photos. This Black and white photo is Hand tinted the "Classic way", never computer aided in any way. I use color film to produce my Black and white Print. My photos are produced on fiber based, double weight black and white printing paper. All of my photos are toned with selenium, copper, sepia, gold, nickel, platinum-palladium, coffee's, or tea's.

My next project that I will complete before new year is my stereo hand tinted photo art using mirrors placed at a 45 degree angle; the late  Dali Salvador had many failed attempts making a stereo picture work using stainless steel, polished aluminum dishes, metals and of course mirrors. Philippe Devaud  (2001) from Switzerland had the opportunity to work  with Dali in the early eighties. Philippe had a theory on how to solve Dali's problem with the double image that distorted his stereo art work. Philippe noticed that the double image was due to the rear silver coating,  stereo pictures that worked were merely a choice of mirrors. Philippe had that discovered that if you use a front coated mirror the double ghost image disappears. I apply this same theory to my stereo photo art.
