Introduction to Alternative Processes (WS)

Discover the trending and noble processes of platinum, cyanotype, gum bichromate, and salted paper

© Brenton HamiltonAs the digital age of visual storytelling progresses, there has been a huge upsurge in interest in the historic and alternative processes of photography. 

This is an introductory course to the noble processes of platinum, cyanotype, gum bichromate, and salted paper. Each printmaking technique is considered and practiced in lectures, demonstrations and supervised labs. Digital negatives and conventional negative processes are introduced to facilitate new work. A detailed technical notebook is produced in conjunction with a suite of finished prints.

Class meets weekly on Wednesdays, Jan 8 - March 12.  Lectures, demos & discussions from 9AM - 12:30PM followed by supervised lab from 1:30PM - 6:00PM
