Salt Printing

Salt Printing image
Introduced in 1839 by Henry Fox Talbot, salt printing is one of the earliest photographic processes and continues to be a viable option for artists interested in working with historic techniques. Participants will learn how to make a light sensitive emulsion, hand-coat paper, and expose an image on the paper. You will also learn how to create digital negatives in photoshop, which you will print out on Pictorico transparency film. Students should bring 35mm, medium, or large format black and white negatives and/or digital files or prints to scan. A basic understanding of Photoshop is helpful but not necessary. We will be working in a darkroom with chemicals so please wear old clothing and an apron that you don’t mind staining.
