Are you interested in photography? Want to learn how to develop and print your own film? Then join the College Photography and Darkroom Society! Our committee is made up of passionate individuals who are dedicated to providing a space for photographers of all levels to come together and share their love of the art. We offer access to our College darkroom, a newly-revived specialized workspace used for developing photographic film. Don't miss this opportunity to learn new skills and meet fellow photography enthusiasts. Join us today!


The College darkroom has been developing Johnian memories for generations. We are excited to be reviving it and sharing film photography with a new generation. The darkroom is a specialized workspace used for developing photographic film. In the past, it was the only way to get a photograph from a film negative. To develop a film, it is typically loaded onto a reel and placed in a light-tight developing tank. Various chemicals are then poured into the tank to develop the film, and the process can take several minutes. Our facilities include all of the necessary materials to develop film from scratch and scan using a DSLR camera or enlarger.
