Sat, Sep 10, 10:00am - Sep 11, 6:00pm Pacific Time (2 sessions)
In this unique, hands-on workshop we will experience the beauty and joy of interpreting our images through 19th-century photographic printing processes of Cyanotype, Salted Paper, and Platinum & Palladium.
Students will learn the techniques and gain the skills needed to make enlarged digital negatives from digital files for each alt-process, coat the alt-process solutions onto fine art papers used for each process, and gain valuable experience working with each of the alt-processes. This one-and-a-half-day hands-on workshop will also introduce participants to some of the oldest photographic processes. Participants will gain the skills required to create prints on their own including making enlarged digital negatives.
A brief historical and technical discussion of each process will be presented. The goal is to provide each participant with an opportunity to experience the subtleties of each process and walk away with 4-6 prints and negatives.
Saturday’s class session will be held at Thymele Arts Building in Hollywood. Sunday will be held at Santa Monica College.
***IMPORTANT NOTE:*** Saturday’s class session will be mostly lecture-oriented explaining the process of making digital negatives. Students will be asked to send files before the class begins to the instructor for printing.
