ONLINE—Nineteenth-Century Retouching Techniques

Tuesday, December 1, 2020, 1 p.m., Online

The limited sensitivity of nineteenth-century photographic materials gave rise to a number of curious but effective techniques to make photographs appear more natural. In this live presentation, Process Historian Mark Osterman will show examples of early negative retouching and then demonstrate some of these rare techniques.

Free to all.
