Instructor: Dan Estabrook
This two-day workshop will cover Talbot’s original Calotype paper negative process. Although the original formula was notoriously difficult, even at its beginning, it still works beautifully with a little care and patience. Students will prepare the iodised paper and shoot their own negatives in camera. We will also discuss later advancements up to and including the wax-paper process, and tips and techniques for printing these negatives on traditional salted paper processes.
Class is limited to six participants.
