"Digital Alternatives" digital/alt process workshop, NYC

Posted 26 January, 2007 in Workshops

This 10 week class at ICP in New York City, meets on Fridays from 10am to 1pm starting on February 2nd. It is called Digital Alternatives, but we will be going back and forth between the digital lab and the alternative lab, using all aspects of photography to create work. Paper negatives, digital negatives, historical techniques, transfers and decals so that we can combine photographic skills from the beginnings of photography up to the 21st century. Participants with basic Photoshop skills will learn how to optimize their files using various manipulation techniques. Demonstrations will address subjects from scanning and image editing to the production of the final enlarged digital negative.

The workshops run Fridays 10:00am – 1:00pm, 2 Feb – 6 April, 2007 at the International Center for Photography, New York, NY, US.

I just checked her book out of the library. I’ve just kind of skimmed through it so far, but it’s not bad.
