The F295 Historic Process Workbook from F295 is a walk back through time to when photography was in its infancy and alternative methods ruled the darkroom. This book takes you through the steps you need to follow to recreate the images made some of the great masters. The fourteen chapters of this book take you step by step into the world of handmade images.
Topics such as history, exposure, recipes, safety are examined and explained. You'll even get lessons in how to make a camera and lens. Four time-honored processes are covered; Cyanotype, Gum Bichromate, Salted Paper and Van Dyke Brown are displayed. The workbook has room for a finished print of each type and room to make notes so you can recreate them at will.
