In the next section of Unit 3, we are going to look at alternative processing methods and how they can be re-created in Photoshop.

The process of developing film has changed just as much as camera technology. Today, many artists and photographers use or mimic these methods to add intrigue, story, or character to their images.

For our first examination, we will be looking at Lith Print – this is a relatively new (1960s) method of processing. You can check out some notes on this process here: LithInfo

Here’s a quick video of artist Tim Rudman explaining his process with Lith Print:
