To coincide with the upcoming bi-annual Brewery ArtWalk this weekend, Translight Colors is giving away a free 8x10 this Sat. & Sun. from 11am - 6pm. Just bring in your file prepped to that size at 300 dpi and they'll print one from their Epson 9800 beast, which they also rent out at a price I guarantee you beats any lab in town.
Translight is the last remaining lab where you can rent out B&W or Color darkrooms by the hour and they've also got you digitally covered with that Epson and a Nikon Super Coolscan 9000ED.
Also, they'll be hosting some super interesting classes coming up shortly at very affordable rates:
LITH PRINTING AND TONING WORKSHOP
Instructor: Francesca di Leo
Dates/Times: Sundays, Nov 8, 15, 22, & Dec 6 from 11am-2:30pm (14hrs total)
Workshop Fee: $200 + $140 lab fee
Location: Translight Photography Center
In this four week workshop, students will explore the world of Lith printing and a whole new way to express themselves artistically. Attendees will learn how to “expose for the highlights and develop for the shadows”, which is the basic principle in Lith printing. The last day of the workshop will involve toning previously printed Lith prints to really evoke a mood and bring greater depth to the image. All students who attend this class should have a basic knowledge of traditional black in white printing.
Platinum/Palladium and Cyanotype Alternative Processes Workshop
INSTRUCTOR: Norma Smith
DATE: Sat 11am-2pm, October 31 - December 12
No class 11/28
CLASS FEE: $335.00 Plus $100 Lab Fee
This six-week workshop offers students hands-on experience in print making using both processes. Students will learn how to choose the best negative contrast, and how to coat, expose, and process his or her paper or fabric. Since both techniques are contact printing processes and require negatives the same size as the desired print, there will be a demonstration of traditional darkroom techniques for making enlarged negatives, as well as a discussion of making negatives digitally using ink jet printers. This highly experimental workshop will provide participants with a basic understanding of the platinum/palladium and cyanotype mediums and the ability to use each in order to add new spice to their images.
