Explore the techniques in historical photographic process before the era of manufactured photographic papers as how it was done by the early pioneers.

These early photo-historical techniques had captured the hearts of hand crafted image-making with its romantic past; from glass plates to the prints; all from life; still-life, portrait, to landscapes of the exotic people and places as how they were made in the past.

We will discuss the history, methods, techniques and hands on practise into image-making with these processes. The methodologies instructed will utilise similar ingredients and methods just as how it was done in the 19th Century.

Upcoming Workshop

SALT & ALBUMEN PRINT, an Introduction - 30 - 31 MARCH 2018, - the NIKON CENTER HUB, Kuala Lumpur

Stacks Image 163

The salt & albumen printing process, earlier also known as calotypes or photogenic drawings, was discovered and perfected by William Henry Fox Talbot, one of the most prominent figure in photography history. The salted paper process is a printing-out process (meaning it requires no development) and was the first documented positive-negative photographic process- a precursor to modern photography’s black and white silver gelatin prints. This process was almost universally used throughout the 1840s to 1850s, and was a popular choice for photographic positives until the 1860s.

The long tonal range and aesthetically pleasing color of salted paper printing has allowed this historically significant and unique process to withstand the test of time.

In this two-day exploratory workshop, participants will have the opportunity to dive head-first into this beautiful process and experiment with several different methods of salt printing.

During the workshop, students will hand-coat fine art paper with the light-sensitive solution and expose the sensitized paper through the prepared negatives, the participants.
