Where: Bellarmine University – Norton Art Building, Room 103
Cost: $20.00 payable the day of the workshop

Sign up by emailing jgleas@probusphotos.com with name and address included.

There will be a brief lecture on pinhole photography followed by a demonstration on making a pinhole camera. We will load our pinhole cameras with RC paper and take them outside for use on campus. We will process our paper negatives in the darkroom, followed by a brief critique of our work. Participants are invited to bring their own pinhole cameras and tripods if they choose. I appreciate Bellarmine College for allowing me to host this event at their campus and thank Louisville Photo Biennial for recognizing this event this year. This should be an exciting venue with more hands on experience than before.

Class is limited the first 20 participants.

Kallitype Workshop From Digital File to Print

The Kallitype has a rich history beginning with Sir John Herschel in 1842 through its 1889 patent by W.W.J. Nicol. Also known as the ‘poor man’s platinum print’ the Kallitype is often indistinguishable from the platinum and palladium printing process. In fact, there are many vintage images out in the world claiming to be platinum prints that are in fact Kallitypes.

It has a reputation for being complex and archivally fugitive, but it is quite simple and as archival as any other historic silver-based processes. Join me as I guide you on a journey from creating a digital negative to making an archivally toned print.

In this workshop I introduce students to a very simple and effective way of calibrating a digital negative and producing curves using the free online resource  Easy Digital Negatives. Each attendee will print an image on letter size Pictorico transparency film, hand coat a sheet of Hahnemuhle Platinum Rag paper and process the print in a simple developer made from scratch.

Handouts with resources and instructions will be distributed so anyone interested can do this at home. All you need is running water and some Christmas lights!
