Description

As technology advances in the world of photography, a passionate crowd of professionals, students, and hobbyists is returning to the darkroom in search of a more authentic, handmade feel to their art.

Packed with stunning imagery, how-to recipes, techniques, and historical information on the evolution of processes, this guide provides the instruction to emulate the ethereal, dream-like feel of alternative processing. Whether in a darkroom using traditional chemicals, at the kitchen sink with pantry staples, or in front of the computer re-creating techniques digitally, you will learn how to add a richness and depth to your photography like never before.

  • Covers alternative processing from its historical roots up through digital manipulation.
  • Showcases the different styles and processing methods of various artists.
  • Includes suggestions for vegan and vegetarian-friendly alternative processing!
