Alternative Process Meets Digital at Penland School of Crafts
Each era of photography has an accumulation of inventions that can be used together to make images. Film to digital to chemical or digital to chemical to digital or… You can probably see that there is no end in sight for what photographers can do with so many tools available, and there is no reason to stick with one way of creating. We will make digital negatives from any type of image, digital or film. We will use them to make cyanotype, platinum, and palladium prints and combine these processes to make monoprints. We will also use inkjet printers to put down a layer of color before printing with the other processes, making beautiful combination prints that span the centuries. Students will leave with many new images and their imaginations in overdrive. This class is for all levels.
