Learn about salt prints

By From page A6 | January 15, 2014

Photographer Debbie Small will speak on her specialty, salt print, as an alternative photographic processing method at the January El Dorado Camera Club meeting.

Salt printing is one of the oldest alternative photographic processes and was the dominant paper-based photographic process for producing positive prints during the 1800s. It employs a technique of coating sheets of paper with silver salts to obtain unique tones and interesting contrasts.

The public is welcome to the Camera Club meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16. The meeting is held at the Cameron Park Community Center at 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park.
