    Alternative Process Printing From Digital Negatives

    You will learn to make photographs using the little known and almost forgotten 19th century kallitype process. The traditional Kallitype is one of the most interesting, variable, and beautiful printing processes ever devised. Until recently the process required a negative produced by a large format camera with film processed specifically to produce this photograph. Our approach is much more flexible and begins with a film negative, a print, or a digital image file. The image is processed via computer to produce a “curved adjusted” negative printed on very high quality transparency media.
    You will begin with your image and use Adobe Photoshop (Registered Trademark) on your computer to adjust levels, brightness, and contrast to create a digital image suitable for kallitype. Then you will apply a digital “correction curve” to the image and create a negative suitable for printing. You will learn to prepare the print emulsion, developer, clear, and fix solutions. You will coat fine art paper with the kallitype sensitizer, determine the correct exposure for your image, print, & and process your photograph. You will evaluate your work and adjust your printing parameters (duration, develop, clear, print) to suit your photograph.
