Albumen Workshop

Albumen Workshop


Introduction to making digital negatives and Albumen Prints.


Albumen Prints were the dominant form of photographic printing at the end of the 19th Century before being replaced by gelatin-silver prints. The word albumen comes from the use of egg whites to coat the surface of the paper and gives them their characteristic glossy sharp rendering--especially when compared to a platinum/palladium print. 


Unlike the gelatin-silver print, albumen prints are a printing-out paper, meaning that they don't require a developer to bring up the image--the light reduces the photosensitve salts all on its own. 


This workshop is available only as a 2-Day workshop as it takes longer to setup the chemistry, coat the paper, and prepare the negatives. 


Price includes Materials Fee
