In the early 1800s Nieciphor Niepce created the first photographic image using silver nitrate on paper. Shortly after, William Henry Fox Talbot perfected a more detailed, contrasted and permanent print out of an alternative process known today as the salt print. Come learn the mystifying chemistry of the earliest photographs using salt and egg whites. Local photo-based artist, Savanna Pettengill will lead a weekend long workshop where students will learn how to create the chemistry, sensitize their own paper and make some of the richest and most beautiful brown hue to black toned prints they've ever made. This class is suggested for intermediate to advanced photographers and photo hobbyists only. Students will create as many images as the class allows time for. This weekend workshop will meet on Saturday and Sunday from 9am-11am both days. 

For ages 14- Adult!
