Albumen Printing Photography Workshop
Albumen printing (glossy or matt): Henry Fox Talbot made the first successful silver chloride photographic paper around 1834. In1840, Louis Desire Blanquart-Evard, improved on Talbot’s recipe to make positive prints. Using egg-whites and silver, beautiful reddish brown to brown colored prints can be made on many types of paper. Students will learn how to tone their images using the same toners that are used with silver gelatin prints. This is a contact print process and you will need negatives the size you would like your final image to be. Students will need to either bring negatives or materials for photograms or, combine a digital negative workshop with this one. Watercolor paper and brushes also need to be supplied by the student. Albumen chemicals will be provided.
