In this intensive two-day class, exhibiting artist Timothy McCoy will teach students how to make evocative albumen prints, as was done in the 1850s. The process begins by cracking eggs, separating out the whites and beating them to obtain albumen solution. Paper will be coated by the albumen solution, and the "albumenized" paper is then floated on silver nitrate solution. This sensitized paper is exposed to UV light through an enlarged negative. The exposed paper is then developed and gold-toned. The result is stunning! Learn how to prepare digital images in Photoshop for the negative, which will then be made using a transparent material run through an inkjet printer. This will involve application of translation curves and soft proofing. Some darkroom experience is expected.
