IPHOT 2100 Alternative Processes

Alternative Photographic Processes is a hands-on and dynamic group learning experience. In this course you will investigate an extensive range of alternative photographic processes from the historical birth of the medium through digital negative production. You will be introduced to a variety of processes including salted paper, gum bichromate, Argyrotype, Kallitype, Cyanotype, Van Dyke, platinum / palladium, Ziatype, albumen, as well as options such as pinhole, Lazertran, and hand applied emulsions. You will see how these concepts, techniques, experiments, and shared ideas will result in new directions for each individual's vision and portfolio.
