Lith Printing - Chris Reid - 1 Day


Lith Prints are usually warm-toned prints with a unique combination of subtle



low contrast properties in the highlights, warm mid-tones, and high contrast colder tones in the shadows. It is an extremely flexible process and many variations may be found from highly graphic to soft ethereal effects. Lith prints tone well in selenium and gold.

Chris Reid, director Blanco Negro Custom Black & White Pro Lab has been printing since 1989. His passion for black and white printing and darkroom skills shows in the quality of his work. He is in high demand from both commercial photographers and the photographic artist.

His work has been seen in many galleries across Sydney including the National Gallery of NSW. Chris's unique way of imparting knowledge gives a great deal pleasure and success to his students.

The workshop is aimed for printers with some experience and during the day you will:
