I have also started to offer private instruction sessions both at the Photo Center NW and outside. I am available for sessions on everything from basic camera operations, to basic and or advance black & white analog printing, toning, lith printing, bromoil, salt printing, ....If you are interested please contact me via the contact page on this website.

Lastly - I now have time to work on my own projects like the book of Paris work I have been photographing for and as of late printing and editing for for 12 plus years. Glad to say it's time has come.

Texture: An Exploration through Lith Printing & Bromoil Class
Photo Center NW

Registration Deadline: August 23, 2014 | Scholarship Application Deadline: August 8, 2014

Class Runs:
Sept 30–Dec 9 (Tue 6–9pm) FIULL

Instructor: Gina White

Description:
Moments captured in images often have an impression of texture – physically, emotionally. So, how can we give expression to that texture in a photograph? There are many ways: choice of film, print size, depth of field, but what about beyond that? There are several alternative processes that bring their own textural qualities. In this class we will explore two such processes, lith printing and bromoil. Lith adds texture and color via it’s characteristic chemical reactions. Once mastered, this process can be exploited to give more or less texture to suit the expression. Bromoil, a process that goes back to the early 20th century pictorialist movement, marries traditional analog printing with printmaking. The textural component here varies with the tool chosen to apply the ink to the image. Join Gina this fall as she introduces you to these amazing, versatile processes and learn to apply them in your own work.

Bromoil Workshop July 13th, 20th, 27th - 12 noon - 4pm
The Bromoil process is a process popular with the pictorialist movement of the early 20th century. It is a process in which a traditionally printed silver image is bleached away and then replaced with lithographic ink. It’s a marriage of the print making process and photography. The resulting image has a texture and appearance that is unique to the process. A truly handmade image. Join us in this three session workshop to explore this beautiful process.

Lith printing process has the ability to produce tones and textures that are impossible to achieve with traditional analog silver printing methods even with the addition of toning. A the variables involved in the process, once mastered that can be exploited to produce new astehtic Add toning and a little thing called second pass lith aka bleach & redevelop and the possibilities are endless. In this class, we will first learn the basic behaviors of the process, then move through a phase of guided experimentation with regards to developers, dilutions, papers. Working with your own images, discover new tools for expression. In the second half of the class we will also explore what a few toners bring to the mix and a class session in second pass lith.
