Description

Jill Enfield’s Guide to Photographic Alternative Processes, 2nd edition is packed with stunning imagery, how-to recipes, techniques and historical information for emulating the ethereal, dream-like feel of alternative processing.

This fully updated edition covers alternative processing from its historical roots through to digital manipulation and contemporary techniques and how to combine them. It features several new techniques alongside new approaches to older techniques, including hand painting on silver gelatin prints, ceramics and photography, cyanotypes, wet plate collodion, digital prints and many more. Enfield showcases the different styles and methods of contemporary artists together with suggestions for vegan and vegetarian friendly alternative processing, transforming 2D images to 3D installations, and how to apply darkroom techniques to digital captures.

Professionals, students and hobbyists will discover how to bring new life and imagination to their imagery. 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.

Reviews

"Jill Enfield has a way of writing about alternative processes that meets the needs of both seasoned printers and photographers who are new to these printing methods. Her book has been a constant guide for my own alternative process research and an important resource for my students."

Chris Nail, Photographic Educator

"Jill Enfield continues to excel as an author specializing in Alternative Photographic Processes. This guide serves fabulously as an educator text and practitioners workbook. Ms. Enfield covers historical and contemporary techniques assisting photographic artists, a must read for all levels of expertise."

Glenn Grafelman, Fine Artist and Educator

"This book is for beginners. This book is for experts. This book is for me. Even though, at this time, I haven’t taken the time to work with alternative processes, since the 1970s, after taking a look at this new release (and update) from Jill Enfield, I am ready to borrow a friend’s 5x7, and go out in the field and try my hand (again!)."
