The #altphotolab will be running a lumen print workshop on Sunday 10th October, 11am-2pm, at the International Garden Cities Institute, Letchworth.


Lumen printing is an experimental, camera-less form of photography made by placing objects (often from nature) onto photographic paper and exposing it to sunlight. It is a contemporary form of one of the earliest photographic processes, the photogenic drawing - or photogram. Following a short introduction to the process we will take a walk in the IGCI garden and nearby park to collect objects to print. There will also be the opportunity to make phytograms, which is a similar technique but where the internal chemistry of the plant is used to help create the image.
