RON TERNER, Instructor & Focal Point Director
This hands-on workshop is geared for the serious amateur as well as for the person who would like an appreciation for fine black and white photography. The class is offered to all levels of skill from beginners and intermediate, to the more advanced student. The course focus will be on camera technique, instruction in the dark room, use of film, film technique, and printing. Students will have their own darkroom equipment for use. The size of the class allows for adequate student attention and personal one on one instruction as the student progresses through out the course developing his/her own personal style and vision.
Terner instructs how to make a fine exhibition quality print and his classes have helped the serious student create a portfolio ready for either gallery review or Fine Art college admissions
interviews. The amateur will be able to make pictures that one could be proud of hanging on any wall. A camera is needed with some additional darkroom supplies which will be discussed in the first class.
Terner has had numerous exhibitions in the United States. His work has also been shown in Latvia, France, Mexico, Norway and Russia. He has lectured throughout the United States on his technique of photo chemical painting he calls the PhotoTern. An article on the process can be found in Darkroom Photography Magazine, July/August 1986. His pictures have been published in many magazines and books. Nudes 1975-1985 and Nudes 1986-1991 are two books devoted to his work. Recently his work was included in the book Eros published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang, curated by Linda Ferrer. Ron Temer’s work is in the permanent collections of The Biblioteque Nationale, Paris, France, The Fotofactory, Oslo, Norway, Idaho State University, Savannah College of Art and Design, Georgia, and in numerous private collections throughout the United States and abroad.
