Intro to Alternative Processes and Digital Negatives (Austin, TX)
►►SORRY, THIS WORKSHOP WILL NOT BE RUNNING.
The innovation and extraordinary development of digital photography has also, ironically, generated a renewed interest in the photographic processes that were instrumental in the growth of silver gelatin’s technology and methodology.
Through the work with two processes, cyanotype and kallitype, this seminar introduces you to the practices, techniques, aesthetics and expressive possibilities of alternative processes.
Cyanotype (also known as blue print or ferro-prussiate) is an iron process printed by contact: a negative the same size of the resulting positive is required. The final image, of an intense blue color, is obtained by exposing the print to ultraviolet light.
Kallitype, on the other hand, is an iron-silver process that creates images with a warm-brown tonality. The kallitype is also printed by contact and exposed under UV light.
As a first step in this seminar, we become familiar with the manufacture, correction, and output of digital negatives customized to the unique requirements of each particular process.
Immediately after establishing the workflow for producing digital negatives, Eduardo continues with an overview of the cyanotype and kallitype processes: their history, chemical make-up, and the possiblity of tonal manipulations through chemical means. Participants have the opportunity to work hands-on with paper preparation and coating with light-sensitive solutions and to expose your digital negative and process prints in order to bring the image to completion. Some class time is also devoted to critiquing your photographs.
Join Eduardo in Austin to step back in time while we explore the beauty of these timeless processes.
