Invented by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1840, the salted paper print was the first negative/positive photographic process, allowing for the simple reproduction of images. Salt prints have a delicacy and depth not found in modern photographic materials, and can give a range of tones from brick red to purple-brown to rich chocolate. In this workshop you will learn the history and chemistry behind the process, as well as negative selection, paper selection, coating, exposure controls, processing, toning, and waxing. The instructor will provide negatives for in-class use, but students are encouraged to bring their own negatives (film, lith, digital, collodion and/or gelatin dry plate) for evaluation and experimentation in class if available.
