ALL-DAY WORKSHOP: CYANOTYPES AND SALT PRINTS
31 MARCH 2018
Please note: this is an event for members of Redeye, The Photography Network. To join, head here.
In times when we are bombarded with technology, it’s good to try something different. Digital Detox is a one day workshop that will give you a grounding in analogue photography. Professional photographer Libby Nightingale will begin with an overview and history of wider traditional methods, film types and processing before giving you a chance to get hands-on and create your own cyanotypes and salt prints.
Who is it for?
This workshop is for any photographer who would like a break from digital and would like some information about and hands-on experience of traditional printing methods.
In the morning camera obscura, pinhole photography, film types and sizes are covered in a mixture of introductory talks and demonstrations from Libby. In the afternoon this is followed by practical exercises in alternative film developing to include both cyanotypes and salt prints.
Libby Nightingale is an Associate Member of the Royal Photographic Society and has a BA (Hons) Photography (1st class). She is responsible for the running of Chromasia Training Limited, for which she won the Business Start-up category of the 2009 North West Women in Business Awards, and was a finalist in the Outstanding Women in Business category of the 2008 ABF Tiger Awards.
Her personal photographic practice is a continuing body of work that challenges both contemporary and historical constructs of childhood, and the way children, particularly girls, are portrayed in art. She has exhibited in Manchester and London and featured in several publications.
