One of the main modules from my master’s program in Photographic History is the History of Photography, Images and Practice module. Part of this module was today’s Alternative Process Workshop instructed by Professor Kelley Wilder.
During this hands-on workshop, I did a practical exercise in photographic process identification. I learned how to identify photographic processes and the importance of identifying them.
