How to See Inside a Tree, Using X-ray Film, Carl Hartt


Carl Hartt will be leading the workshop using large format cameras with x-ray film to capture photographs. Carl will provide an overview of the process and be on hand to answer questions as we venture on a small excursion along the Menomonee River Parkway capturing our images. If you do not have a large format camera of your own, don’t worry, there will be a few on hand, as well as film holders for loan. Please let us know if you have a large format camera, or film holders (4×5 or larger).

Once we’re finished we’ll head back to Carl’s place to learn his process for developing our images with his home-brewed developer; after which we’ll have a few of our very own experimental process photos to take home. Relative to the number of attendees, expect to make 2 – 4 images in this workshop.

No large format experience necessary to attend this workshop, basic knowledge of the analog photography process is helpful.

We’ll head out for a dutch-treat dinner and drinks afterward.

The cost is $30. Space is limited, so if you’re interested, don’t wait to register.
