Next Level Ziatype Workshop with Anne Eder

Ziatype Workshop at Digital Silver Imaging

Ziatypes from Intro Workshop ©Anne Eder

This Next Level Ziatype Workshop will take participants through the complete process of making ziatypes with an emphasis on refining techniques. This workshop is designed to fine tune the skills of photographers with a basic knowledge of ziatype printing.  Having taken our Introductory Ziatype Workshop, prior experience with ziatype printing, or permission from the instructor is required.

Expert instructor, Anne Eder, will step participants through the entire printing process, starting with making a contact negative on an inkjet printer, through coating of the light sensitive paper, to exposure with sunlight, and the final archival wash.

During the course of this day-long workshop participants will focus on:
• Perfecting negative conversion curves for better print results
• Creating a negative to express your vision
• Understanding ziatype chemistry
• Creating additional color and tone in your ziatype

If you are curious about the advantages of ziatype printing here is a brief list:
• Ziatypes utilize a printing out process (POP), images can be evaluated as they print, resulting in far fewer underexposed or overexposed prints.
• Greater contrast control without graining
• Greater paper acceptance, prints well on most papers.
• Greater color control. You can “dial in” various shades of brown to red brown, purple to neutral grays.
• No developer needed.
• Excellent blacks (dmax) without the use of costly platinum or palladium.

All materials needed will be provided, prints will be made on Hahnmühle Platinum Rag paper.  Participants need to bring 3 to 4 images on a flash drive, CD, or their laptop. Images should have good tonal scale in both the highlight and shadow areas. Two negatives will be made, one larger and one smaller, so a larger size file is better as it can always be reduced without image degradation. Files should be 300ppi, actual size. Participants will be able to keep, the prints , negatives, and custom curves made during the workshop.

Date: Saturday April 22, 2017
Time: 10:00-6:00 with a break for lunch
Place: Digital Silver Imaging, 9 Brighton Street, Belmont, MA
