When Polaroid's Image Transfer and Emulsion lift processes hit the scene, photographers hit the ground running searching for unique hand made photos. Migrating images from one surface to another has been both rewarding and frustrating. This workshop focuses on techniques that work every time. During the weekend students work on preparing digital images, printing to transparency film and transferring to a variety of substrates such as metal, wood, and various papers. All of the techniques can be prepared to mimic authentic alternative processes such as cyanotype, emulsion lifts, palladium, or utilize modern imagery to create one-of-a-kind works of art.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.
