    Light Farm silver gelatin web tutorials

    I am very happy to announce the launch of the Light Farm silver gelatin tutorials. Over the course of 2013, if everything goes according to plan (fingers crossed!), I, and a few others, will teach participants the abc's of emulsion making and -- just as important -- the xyz's of what to do with the materials once you've made them.

    I hope some of the people who have participated in this forum over the years will decide to jump in and learn a Craft that almost literally has no creative boundaries.

    Happy Holidays to All,
    d

    I have been looking at the Lightfarm many times and I like what I see!

    Only one problem though: when reading about procedures ex to clean a glass plate for emulsion, all American (?) brand names are mentioned - stuff I have NO idea what is... so I get confused.. (I don't even know what Everclear is - a name mentioned many times on the net...)

    Everclear = 95% Alcohol for us Europeans, but I agree with you the American names and Brands can be very confusing.

    Likewise for all of us Americans, too! Most of us have no idea what products you have. I've been to England a number of times so I do understand that even many common items have very different names and the brands don't translate at all.

    However, I'd say post or PM someone here if you need a translation. I'm sure someone will be willing to help out. Maybe we can create a translation table of sorts.

    Hi!

    Absolutely free. No sign-up.

    The big reason I've got my fingers crossed, though, relates to the issue that Emil and Dominik address -- the challenges of making silver gelatin emulsions a craft that translates worldwide. I have high hopes that the people who are following along, learning emulsion making, will constructively contribute to the process. I will ask that people write a bit about their experience -- both the successes and the total fails. Hopefully, post images. Offer advice on local retail outlets. If we can make a cooperative venture of the feedback, I think this will succeed beyond even my unfailing optimism and create a web learning experience that is equal to a physical workshop.

    So, if there is a 'cost', the coin is your time and willingness to share .

    Great idea, Jason. In my ideal world, though, there wouldn't be PM's regarding these tutorials. Open source, all the way.
