Historic photographic processes have become an exciting alternative and even complementary technique to digital imaging.
At George Eastman House, participants not only get hands-on instruction on the processes, but also get to view prime examples from the Museum’s incomparable collections. No prior experience is necessary for most of these workshops. They are suitable for artists, photographers, students, teachers, and anyone interested in using these rare 19th century processes in the 21st century.
Don't see the process you'd like to learn? We teach a wide variety of early photographic techniques in private group workshops and individual tutorials. We offer workshops all over the world, and events can also be held at an institution near you. Ask about arranging a workshop or illustrated lecture to suit your needs.

Start-up funding for this workshop series was provided by a grant from Howard and Carole Tanenbaum.

Unlike silver prints, the carbon print image is formed with the same pigments used for centuries in artists’ oil colors. The key to making carbon prints is a sheet of pigmented gelatin called a “tissue.” These can be purchased, but are expensive and limited to only a handful of colors. In this workshop, you’ll get hands-on experience in how to make carbon prints in any color using watercolors available at your local art store.
Instructor: Mark Osterman. Price includes a $70 materials fee.
