Albumen printing was the most popular printing process used in the century before last and the beginning of photography as an industrial product. Although an improved version of salt printing based on silver chloride, album printing dominated for decades until the 1930s. Famous artists, Margaret Julia Cameron, Eugene Atget and others used this printing process; not least because of its increased density and brilliance as well as improved detail. In this 2-day workshop you will learn how to create album prints; from the production of the albumin, to the coating of the paper, to exposure to natural and artificial light, to contrast control and toning. You are welcome to bring your large-format negatives (if available) as well as digital image files to check the suitability for albumin or salt printing. We will be happy to show you how to create suitable digital negatives for this printing process.

The workshop will take place on 05. and 06.06.2020 from 10:00 to 10:00 in our studio at Zieglergasse 34, 1070 Vienna.

The course fee is € 250,-.

The participation can be booked via mail: info@wiener-alchemisten.at.

A big compliment to the management and the organization of the Art Market for the great exhibition with fantastic artists in these challenging times.

We would especially like to thank all the great people of whom we had the opportunity to take unique tintype portraits with our cameras.
