INside the Darkroom- Printing photos on glass


Model in studio,  photographed with Hasselblad. Tattoo work by Carlos Torres.

This process in a pain in the ass- is it worth it?  You bet. 23 carat gold worth it. Continuing education in this profession of photography led by the master Michael Weitzman.


You need to cut the glass, prep it, coat it with emulsion, expose it, develop it, dry it, then the Gold comes in.
