AR 3470 - Alternative and Historic Processes in Photography

This intermediate photography course covers hand-coated emulsions and contact printed negatives. Students experiment with a variety of photographic formulas, some formulas dating back to the 1840s, when photography was first discovered, and some recent developments in alternative and non-silver processes. Course requirements may include a project of photographs, a portfolio of work at the end of the semester, and demonstrated knowledge of chemistry interactions of emulsions, developers, and clearing agents. Issues of chemical safety, use and disposal are included in the course. Students learn different methods of negative and image production in addition to the paper production, exposure and processing necessary for these formulas. Techniques may include, but are not limited to: salted paper printing, kallitype, Van Dyke Brown, platinum, palladium, cyanotype, gum bichromate, ziatype.
