Adventures in Image Transfers
with Sandy Carrion
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 will focus on techniques that work every time. During the week we will 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.
We begin at 9am every day and conclude by dinner. The studio is open each evening for additional studio time.
Since we will be working part of the time in Photoshop or Lightroom, a Laptop and a thumb drive will be needed. Basic knowledge of either program is helpful. Files can be generated from any source such as phones, digital cameras or scans. Subject matter is up to you. All materials will be provided under a class fee. What to bring? A list of simple supplies will be sent to you upon registration.
