Alternative Photographic Printing Processes (Adults)

This class is an introduction to some of the earliest 19th century photographic processes, the Cyan-blue print, Lumen contact printing, Anthotype contact printing, and a Phytography test.  As a bonus, some may have a chance to shoot a roll of 120 mm BW film & process it.  These larger format negatives can be used with the Cyanotype printing process.

 

The Cyanotype is a 170-year-old photographic printing process that produces prints in a distinctive dark greenish blue. The word cyan comes from Greek, meaning "dark blue substance." The process was invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, a brilliant astronomer and scientist. A lumen print is a solar photogram - an image created on photographic paper, exposed by the sun. It was one of the first photographic processes developed by Fox Talbot in 19th century England. The anthotype is printed in the sun for a few days or several weeks. The anthotype print develops as the rays of the sun destroys the color of the pigment, bleaching the print. Each and every emulsion will need a different exposure time.  Some emulsions need only a few hours to change color, some a few weeks. The Phytography enables interaction between the phytochemical properties of plants and photochemical to create an image.

 

This workshop is suitable for everyone, especially beginners. You will learn how to compose objects, rip paper to size, mix the chemicals, make emulsion, coat paper, and expose using a UV light/Sunlight to make your own cyanotype photograms and more.  Those interested will be instructed on how to create acetate digital-like negatives. You will learn how to create a beautiful set of blue prints, experiment with Lumen & Anthotype contact printing using objects & subjects of your choice. Your instructor has a vast selection of items that you can experiment with, or if you prefer, collect & bring along your own found objects such as items of nature, flowers, and leaves, beads and buttons, or lace. Almost anything can be used, so be resourceful and creative.

 

Some paper will be provided. Sizes will vary as well as the class printing frames. For the advanced student, you may want to experiment with stencils, or make drawings on acetate or shoot a larger format camera for larger negatives. Cost includes some materials. You will also be asked to bring in some materials. A supply list will be provided prior to our first class.  Bring a notepad and pencil. Wear old clothes or bring an apron.

 

Note: Many of your exposures will be done outside of class and one session will be scheduled earlier in the day at an agreed-upon location with good light.

Art of Seeing class image
Photography & The Art of Seeing (Adults)

This Photography class is an exploration of “seeing the art in the everyday”… an exploration of the beauty of that & learning to talk about it. We will practice shooting using existing light while trying to remain a “fly on the wall.” The instructor will share some techniques in the idea of shooting “on the street” and various locations, while remaining unobtrusive to the scene.

This class will be on the go… never the same… & there is always a twist. We will meet at different locations in & outdoors, all participants should always have their camera gear at the ready for all classes.

This Photography Art of Seeing class has a slightly different twist as we will still practice safe distance shooting using various focal lengths to create images of human interest together.

Topics are subject to change but we will be creating Portraits in class studio, hiking in the landscape to create images of serenity and calm, and a go at conceptual pandemic portraiture location work, with one random street stranger shoot.

The student should have a basic understanding of his or her camera & can use the camera of choice. Please be prepared to walk the streets of Logan every other class or “other” location or event will be planned ahead of time for our class meetings.

 

Gears needed:

Camera body, lens, battery, memory, Travel-drive

PhotoCllix Teen class
PhotoClix (ages 11-17)

This ART Photography class is an introduction to "seeing" and using the camera as a tool to capture the extraordinary that is right in front of us on a daily basis. The student can use the digital camera of choice as well as practice with the class DSLR for classroom projects only. Each class will end with an outdoor walkabout photo safari. The first session will cover the introduction to using a digital camera and to framing up a composition that works effectively with the subject matter. This session will end with a photographic scavenger hunt. Session two: We will focus on the "self-image" and what each student finds to be the "Best Part of themselves." We will photograph those parts/ pieces collaboratively, this project will also include a portion that includes a writing assignment. Example: Eyes – so they can read or see... We will edit in & outside of class & print a collection of the images for the next class session. Session three: We will then work in collaboration to build a full-scale portrait using the photo montage/ joiner technique. We will also apply color and type onto the pieces. Session four: We will experiment with some, not all of these novelty photographic techniques to create the idea of soft focus, double exposures & bokeh light shaping, Focal Length Pulls, reflection/ shadow & Night Photography. Students will be asked to email the instructor one or more files per week so they can be printed at a local print lab.
