anyone interested in having an Alternative Process
I would really really love to teach it, it's all DIY cameras and chemistry.
It could go 1 of 2 ways:
1) Run an 8 week class, similar to the Intro to Black and white class. Start with simple techniques, build upon them, while introducing new processes each class. Hopefully end with a class exhibition.
2) Run 1 full day workshops for specific processes for which ever ones people show interest in?
if there is interest it would be really helpful if people could say which topics they'd want to learn, and then I could plan around that. I'm just going to list a range of processes possible. Would probably need to have a sign up in advance plus prepaid lab fee- for supplies the cost would go down per person if more people sign up. pinhole
(pretty much free) skill level: easyhttp://www.photospace.co.nz/images/pinh ... 50x400.jpgpaper negatives
(however much photo paper or photocopies cost)
skill level easy. Cyanotype
(inexpensive) skill level: easyhttp://220.127.116.11/wp-content/uploads ... ic-sml.jpgVan Dyke Brown
(slightly more than cyano- but often can be purchased together, and can be combined nicely with the cyanotype process.http://www.flickr.com/photos/ourcalamity/5191268892/

(main cost is for silver nitrate) skill level: easy after C & VD
this processes would begin in the first week, but we would not print with it until 4 weeks later as the paper is sized with a solution we would need to prepare (this is not a vegan friendly process- okay for ovo veggies) Looks similar to VanDyke but with greater tonality and yields a sharper image.http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.co ... lbumen.jpgdaylab polaroid/fuji lifts and transfers
(price would really depend on interest and class size) Skill level moderatehttp://grad2007.ecuad.ca/images/photogr ... _kai01.jpghttp://www.adobe.com/designcenter/photo ... sfer_1.jpgliquid emulsion (ghetto tin type)
(more costly) skill level moderate- hardhttp://www.costaricacoffeeart.com/image ... n-wood.jpg
then there's been some interest in colour film processing.
could run a day workshop on that at some point (interest?)- i think i have a lead on a jobo that works. m;)
