photobtvNew tripod smartphone mount came today. Now that i can shoot camera raw files with full manual control on my phone will make portraits for salt printing easier. #vermont #saltprint #portraits
- dougvankampenSalt prints!? Do tell!
- photobtv@dougvankampen look down in my instagram feed for my salt prints! Its a 180 year old process. Its contact printing a negative is made and placed on a sensitized piece of paper and exposed to uv light
- dougvankampenThis is something I've wanted to do for a while but was wondering how to produce the negative, how much space I'd need, equipment, cost, etc. The developing out process seems much more doable without an actual darkroom.
- photobtv@dougvankampen doug its relatively cheap, the chemicals are not so toxic and you dont need a dedicated darkroom to do it. I did have to custom build an led lightbox to do the exposure however. Its not a fast process for sure but in the end i control it and have something tangible to hold. The negative is easy to make (need special transparency sheets) and you dont need much space really at all. I do it all in my kitchen.
