INSTRUCTOR: Chris Barrett

Interested in learning more about the analog photographic process of making cyanotypes? Seeking a more hands on approach to making prints from your digital images? The Cyanotype and Digital Negatives workshop with Chris Barrett will introduce participants to the art of the “blue print,” made by contact printing a digital negative onto paper coated with cyanotype emulsion.

Over the three sessions, participants will learn to:

  • Prepare files in Photoshop

  • Print digital negatives on LATITUDE’s piezography printer

  • Hand-coat paper with cyanotype emulsion

  • Develop and tone final prints

This class is designed for anyone who has prior printing experience on Epson printers and is interested in exploring one of the safest and easiest hand-coated analog emulsion processes. If you’ve never printed before but still want to participate, consider signing up for LATITUDE’s Intro to Print one-on-one tutoring here prior to the course!

Space is limited to 6 participants so grab your spot early!

Add To Cart

Growing up with a strong interest in the arts and literature, Chris Barrett was always intrigued with image-making. Photography seduced him away from painting early in his career, and he was largely self-taught for the first few years until getting a job schlepping gear for some of the most talented architectural photographers in the business. He assisted for about three years before getting behind the camera full-time and has been shooting buildings, interiors and furniture for the better part of the last twenty years.

Over the years, Barrett has given lectures to classes from universities such as The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Southern Illinois University, University of Wisconsin and Roosevelt University. He is always happy to take the time and enjoy speaking with students of architecture and photography alike.
