About The Course
Lith printing is one of the more modern alternative photographic techniques, as it was invented in the 1970s. It is a photographic printing process, that uses standard black-and-white photographic paper with lithographic developer (often heavily diluted standard developer) to produce a print with dark shadows and soft, bright highlights. It can give varying levels of contrast for the same exposure conditions.
It is an amazingly creative printing process, where the results, may vary from very detailed or ‘graphical’ to very grainy, painterly and colourful (from pink to orange to brown). Each print is very unique – so much so that it is very difficult to achieve repeatable results.What you will need
