Thread: introduction

  1. #1


    I am a photo-artist. I work in a wet darkroom using a number of cameras. I have done much Lith printing and mordancage. Currently i am working on Salt prints. I am not much for chatting into space with no specific person to talk to so i question the value of this "thread". If there is any one out there please send me a response.

    so i question the value of this "thread"
    This is the best resource for large format photographers. Which large format do you use?

    and for those of you who didn't know...

    Mordanšage is an alternative photographic process that alters silver gelatin prints to give them a degraded effect. The mordanšage solution works in two ways: it chemically bleaches the print so that it can be redeveloped, and it lifts the black areas of the emulsion away from the paper giving the appearance of veils. Once the emulsion is lifted, it can then be removed or manipulated depending on the desired outcome. Areas where the emulsion was removed appear to be in relief. These prints can become oxidized during their creation, further altering the tonality of the image.
