Artist Series – Three Evenings of Specialist Printing – Solarisation / Lith Printing / Selective Development & Toning


This is a three part evening course taking place on the Monday 6th, 7th & 8th May. Over the four weeks you will discover darkroom printing & solarisation, toning, selective development & lith printing. Working with specialist Mark Long, you’ll lean how to make a print in the darkroom and then apply a variety of post production techniques. Focusing every evening on a different discipline you’ll gain knowledge of the various specialisations so you’ll be able to comfortably use them in your working practice. Mark Long is an artist & photographer who’s knowledge of the darkroom started with his re-discovery of the Morden-Cage technique whilst at Edinburgh University. Since then his personal work had been heavily influenced by the science behind darkroom practice and he continues to research and evolve these practices for contemporary use. There are only four places per course.

Every week you’ll experience a different printing technique:

1: Solarisation –¬†Exposing a partially developed photograph to light, before continuing processing, creating halo-like effects often seen in the work of Man Ray & Francis Bruguiere.

3: Selective Development & selenium toming – abstract your imagery using powdered developer, brushes and sprays.

4: Lith Printing – Using special Lith developers and exposure techniques, lith prints have strong shadows balanced out with delicate, warm highlights. Prints can be worked on to emphasise the particular aspects of lith printing hat you like. Its a very beautiful way of printing under used in modern darkroom practice.

Working with your choice of images every evening you will gain an in-depth learning of all these processes.
