Advanced albumen and saltprint online
The saltprint and the albumen print are the two processes that almost totally dominated the first decades of photography, especially in Europe. No wonder that these techniques were developed over years, perfected. After years of mistakes diminishing their permanence, photographers learnt to process the images correctly, to tone them, learnt to improve the image quality. It is largely thanks to those developments that the two processes continued their popularity until the early 20th century.
If you are interested in mastering the intricacies of albumen and saltprinting and move from beginner to advanced printer, learn how to ensure the print permanence, improve contrast and alter their colour by toning, I am offering an online workshop that will provide an excellent opportunity to do just that. Since both processes are so closely related and the albumen print can actually be thought of as an offspring of the saltprint, the workshop will concentrate on the elements that are common to both of them. If you are also interested in advanced methods particular to saltprinting, the ‘advanced saltprint’ workshop will offer an opportunity to discover them.
During this workshop, you will:
- learn the mothods of controlling contrast common to both processes.
- learn to tone the prints using gold, palladium and platinum,
- learn to tone prints using selenium,
- learn the rules of archival processing,
- learn to use developers in salt and albumen printing,
Similarly to our other online workshops, this workshop will be held in the form of a video conference which will make free discussion and trading tricks possible and will make the workshop resemble working together in the darkroom as closely as possible.
If you are also interested in learning advanced methods pertinent to the saltprint, I am also offering an advanced saltprinting workshop online that will address the most important developments particular to this amazing process.
