Thursday 03 December 2015 : 6pm-9pm

This session will give you an insight and practical experience of how to create the best digital negatives for different types of alternative processes.

Creating negatives digitally is a new(ish) process (1990s)  that gives one absolute control over the density, contrast, and look of the final print. This process also makes it feasible to use a digital file instead of a negative to make an analog print. This means that one can take something as simple as a camera phone photo and turn it into an analog print!

This 3 hr work-shop will go through the basic steps of converting a digital file or scanned negative or image and transform it into a workable Digital Negative for use with analogue printing.  The digital negative process can be applied to numerous analog processes (Silver Gelatin, Gum Bichromate, Kallitype, Platinum, Palladium, Van Dyke, Gravure and many other processes) and will provide you with the skills to begin the process of making beautiful analog prints and objects from digital files. This workshop is especially useful for those working or interested in alternative and historic photographic printing processes.

What to bring:  A digital file to work from which may be from any of the following: a digital camera, a cell phone, a digital collage, a scanned negative, a scanned photograph or other object.
