A 4-session hands-on course that
teaches students how to make a digital negative and create Tintypes. Most
widely recognized as a civil war era style photograph, Wet Plate photography is
one of the most cherished photographic processes. The historically accurate way
to make plates is through the use of a large format camera to create an
in-camera positive. This course makes
the process accessible to all, as long as there is a photographic image to work
with and a darkroom. We’ll cover post-processing
techniques to create digital positives specific for Tintypes. In the darkroom
component, students learn about all the materials, chemistry, and techniques
needed to make plates. Tuition includes
limited in-class use of chemicals, aluminum plates, and transparencies. Tuition
also includes lab pass to computer workstations, the Epson 3880, and partial
access to B&W private darkrooms.
