Exploration of Alt Processes in Photography
Explore alternative process printing with Ray Bidegain. Spend four sessions working with Ray Bidegain exploring three popular Alternative processes. We will begin with a session in the digital lab learning how to make enlarged digital negatives for contact printing. Students will learn to make digital negatives from digital files generated with their camera or by scanning camera negatives. Scanning will not be covered in this session so negative scans will have to be done by students ahead of time. In the following three sessions we will learn to make cyanotype, VanDyke Brown, and Platinum palladium prints. Students will leave the class with a basic understanding of these great alternative processes and a variety of prints for their portfolios.
