Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $395

This workshop is designed for lovers of all photographic processes at any learning level. Using Jacquard Solarfast dyes on watercolor paper, and black and white photo paper the class will explore how various emulsions, light sources and exposure times affect the outcome of an analog photographic image made outside of the darkroom. You will explore making exposures using ethically sourced botanical specimens from the natural environment, as well as turn digital images into usable negatives that are easy and affordable to create, even at home. You will leave with fixed prints that will last for many years to come, as well as digital files of your images if desired (please bring your camera or camera phone to document your process.)
