A Virtual Workshop!


Discover lumen prints, a camera-less photographic process where you will create unique photographic images using black and white photographic paper, objects, and light over a two day workshop. On the first day students will learn a brief history of lumen printing, as well as an overview of the process used to create lumen prints. In between the two days of the workshop, students will practice what they have learned by creating lumen prints on their own. On the second day of the workshop, the instructor and students will meet to talk about and review the students’ lumen prints. 


Registration closes July 30, 2021 to allow time for students to gather/purchase their materials. With your registration you'll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, as well as a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.


PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
