Curious about alternative photographic processes? Wondering if Platinum/Palladium, cyanotype, Van Dyke brown, or albumen printing might enhance your artistic vision? Join Dana Sullivan and Christi Wiltenburg from Bostick and Sullivan in Santa Fe as they give an overview of photographic alternative processes. Bostick and Sullivan has supported photographers and other artists using alternative approaches since 1980 and the company is recognized as a leader in the field, providing both supplies and education. During an hour-long presentation, Dana and Christi will talk about why photographers might find alternative processes useful in their work. They will describe various processes, how digital negatives are made and used, and will show prints of the same image in 4 versions to give an idea of the possibilities that alternative processes afford. Following the presentation, there will be 30 minutes for questions.
This is a free (live only) Zoom Event presented by EMPHASIS: ASMP/NM Fine Art, 5:30-7:00pm MST
