Lith printing is a unique process. Conventional black and white negatives are printed using selected photographic papers processed in lith developer, to produce work with a distinctive tonality. This can range from a strong, gritty contrast with hard shadows and warm midtones to prints with soft, muted, delicate tones. During this two-day workshop, students will learn different techniques to control the contrast and tone through exposure and development plus additional toning and bleach methods to further manipulate the prints’ range of colours.
• Demonstration and workshop on exposure and lith development
• Refining and additional chemistry used in development
• Suitability of available photographic papers
• Opportunity to experiment with discontinued ‘lith’ papers
• Bleach and re-development techniques for colour change
• Toning Lith Prints
All materials will be provided.
