My wife, France, and I are giving an illustrated lecture on how various 19th century photographic work at the New Orleans Museum of Art this Friday at 1:00. The talk includes daguerreotype, calotype, salt print, collodion negatives and albumen printing. It is part of the educational programs in support of the current exhibit of 19th century landscape photography.

For more information google NOMA Mark Osterman / France Scully Osterman

Mark,

That sounds educational & fun - even if I cannot pronounce " daguerreotype, calotype, collodion or albumen " .....

Many people on this forum have antique photographs. We demonstrate how the sensitive papers, films and plates are made and how they work.

Below: me coating paper with egg white and salt. The paper is then sensitized with silver nitrate and printed from a glass negative. These were called albumen prints. Every antique shop has these in the form of small mounted portraits about the size of a calling card.

Mark, For the small albumen prints do you have to use small quail eggs? :-)

Around 1976 I had the privilege of doing my own developer, stop, and bath for some 35mm B&W's I took but I wouldn't want to leave digital to go back to that. Unfortunately, I have to work Friday and the garage space I rent is off limits to visitors.
