This is a weeklong investigation and introduction to the 19th C. historic process. You will learn about and practice: The Cyanotype, Salted paper, Albumen, Gum Bichromate, and POP process. It’s a hands-on learning week to actually make prints from fine digital negatives. The negatives will be made in-house for you from your digital files in our lab. Topics will include chemistry, paper treatments and preparation, toners, and working on understanding exposure.
