Salt Print Photography

Key Course Information

The Salt process was first devised by Henry Fox Talbot in 1839 to make the world’s first permanent photographic print.
Step by step guidance will be given on mixing the chemicals and coating techniques first on to watercolour paper. Once coated, paper is then exposed to a UV light source to produce a chemical reaction and then fixed with an option to tone before being washed in water.
You can use film negatives or make digital negatives to create ‘original’ prints on paper
This course would suit students with basic experience of black & white darkroom printing but this is not essential. Those who have done Cyanotypes will find this process equally fascinating.
Instruction on how to make digital negatives from digital photographs will be included.
