The Saltprint

The saltprint, also known as talbotype, is one of the oldest photographic processes and the first process that made it possible to make prints from negatives. And even though it is a truly old process, in knowledgeable hands it still enables the artist to make unparalleled images. Subtle, delicate, characterized with unmatched tonal range. Images not only exquisitely beautiful but also very permanent.

If you would like to learn this magical process, join my online workshop which will give you an opportunity to get all the information and skills necessary to start working independently. During the four hours of the intensive workshop held in the form of a video conference, you will:

  • learn about the materials and tools needed to make salprints
  • learn to make your own lightsensitive materials
  • get advice on creating a home darkroom
  • learn the basic methods of controling the contrast of saltprints
  • learn to prepare digital negatives for saltprinting
  • learn to asses the exposure of a saltprint
  • learn to correctly process it
  • get acquainted with the basics of archival processing
  • learn to prepare your prints for presentation

Similarly to our other online workshops, this one will be conducted in the form of a video conference enabling free communication and discussion, as well as exchange of ideas and experiences. This way we will be able to get as close as possible to working together in the darkroom. This in turn will make the learning more effective, pleasant and easier than simply listening to a lecture.

The workshop is suitable for beginners with no previous experience in saltprinting or alternative printing though the wide range of subjects taught makes it also ideal for photographers who have already started their saltprinting adventure

    • The workshop is presently coming up in the alternativephotographicsupplies.com online shop – it will be easiest to order it this way and payment will be through paypal. For the moment I am not planning an an online gum printing workshop – this is one of the processes which I feel will benefit from actually working together in the darkroom:)
