Learn the basics of making prints with the first photographic printing process introduced by William Henry Fox Talbot in the 1830s. Mark Osterman guides participants though the steps of coating, printing, processing, and displaying salted paper prints made from historic glass and paper negatives. The class also includes an illustrated lecture on the theory of sun printing followed by class discussion and viewing original salt prints by William Henry Fox Talbot, Hill and Adamson, James Robertson, Roger Fenton, and others from the vaults of George Eastman House.
All participants receive complete instructions and formulas as well as reprints of relevant historic articles on the salt printing process.
