Ziatype Workshop

Back by popular demand, the Ziatype workshop will take participants through the complete process of making Ziatypes. An alternative photographic process, Ziatypes are a variation on the platinum/palladium process but offers many advantages and is a much simpler process than platinum/palladium printing. More forgiving and easier to master, Ziatypes are often mistaken for platinum/palladium prints with rich dark tones and virtually unlimited color combinations from cool to warm. Here is a brief list of the advantages of Zia printing:

• 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.

During the course of this day-long workshop participants will take one of their images and turn it into a finished Ziatype print. (More than one print maybe made if time allows.) 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.

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: January 14, 2017
Time: 10:00-6:00 with a break for lunch
Place: Digital Silver Imaging, 9 Brighton Street, Belmont, MA
Fee: 249.00

Student Discount: Currently enrolled students can receive a 10% discount. Use promo code: Student10 at checkout. You will be asked to present your valid student ID at the workshop, if you do not have a valid ID you will be charged the full $249.
