Baltic Analog Lab

  1. 16mm eco processing

    On July 7, 2019 Baltic Analog Lab invites for a day workshop with our returning friend Karel Doing from England who will teach us this time shooting and developing 16mm b/w film with local flowers.

    The workshops explores the possibilities for developing film with local flowers. We will collectively shoot a roll of film with a Bolex camera, followed by an introduction about flower based developer. This will include tips about mixing, temperature, timing and the different effects that can be achieved. We will mix our own developer and process the roll that has been exposed earlier. Some prior experience with shooting film is preferable but the workshop is also suitable for anybody who has a profound interest in 16mm film and alternative darkroom process.

    Have a look on results of our 2017 year eco processing workshop:

  2. 16mm contact printing

    Baltic Analog Lab is pleased to welcome back a fantastic australian duo - Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie to give a two day hands on workshop in exploring the DIY 16mm colour contact printing techniques using 16mm Steenbeck editing table, 16mm colour print film and ECP colour process.

    The contact printer is one of the most essential part of the cinema apparatus.   Almost every film for which there was more than one copy was contact printed.  Yet the contribution to cinema of contact printing machines is by and large invisible.  Typically, the idea of a contact printer is to make duplicates as close as possible to the original.  That is a useful! It is a function upon which the history of cinema, including experimental cinema, has relied.  Yet contact printing is capable of much more than that.  They can be a tool for original and complex image compositing.  There are a lot of games, both conventional and unconventional, that can be played on what is a relatively simple device.  The trick is having access to one... and now Baltic Analogue Lab has does!  A beautiful Steenbeck editor has been converted into a fully functioning colour contact printer.

    In this practical workshop, Australian experimental film artists Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie will help you explore and unpack the possibilities of the contact printer in a two day of colour contact printing bliss!

  3. A two day workshop will provide an introduction to colour photography by experimenting with ‘’wrong’’ processing methods – cross process, reversal process, washing film emulsion in soap and other synthetic and organic materials.
    Students will shoot on slidefilm and afterwards develop the film in C41 chemistry (Cross Processing). There will be fresh as well as expired films available. The teachers will show and explain how to shoot with such old, expired films and how to develop the films without destroying the emulsion so that you still can get interesting and beautiful results with the photos.

    During the workshop, there will be a photo walk where students will go for a walk with their cameras to take photos, which will be later developed using those creative techniques.

    Programme:

    • Introduction to slidefilm
    • theoretical Introduction to E-6 development process 
    • Introduction to colorfilm
    • Introduction to C-41 development process
    • Introduction to cross processing
    • Introduction to Filmsoups
    • shooting test film together
    • developing slidefilm in C-41 process
    • photographing together (photo walk)
    • individual film development


    Patrice Baunov (Born in 1988) is a self-taught artist from Berlin. Has studied anthropology in several European universities such as Freie Universität Berlin, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt and ISCTE-IUL. Patrice found his interest in analog photography by taking part in photo collective Lomography Deutschland, where he, as he himself states, is doing Visual Arthropology. In his practice, he is using expired films as well as various manipulations of colour emulsion in the darkroom.

    It is advised to take your own analog 35mm photo camera.
    Films will be provided at the workshop.

  4. Alternative Emulsions workshop

    Shortly before Process festival on 16-17 March,2019 filmmaker Esther Urlus (WORM Filmwerkplaats, Rotterdam) will give a two day workshop teaching Alternative Emulsions workshop for 16mm film.
    A hands-on workshop that concentrates on two distinct Alternative Emulsion processes; Cyanotype, an iron emulsion process that produces a striking Prussian Blue image and Van Dyke Brown, an iron/silver emulsion that produces a beautiful and painterly sepia coloured image. 

    An intensive introduction into the alchemical nature of moving images showing a variety onto alternative, light sensitive, emulsions. We will explore the arts of home­brewed film emulsions and explore a variety of options for coating the emulsion onto 16mm film. A basic chemistry lesson will be provided to introduce the essential make-­up of these emulsions, followed by the creation of the emulsion in a darkroom. These emulsions will be created from scratch, using the key ingredient in the production of alternative emulsion: ferric ammonium citrate. With our handmade film stock we will: expose photograms, make contact prints and hand­-process the results so they are ready for projection.

    Preview of the technique: http://www.re-mi.eu/wiki/re-exploring-unexplored-paths/workshop-alternative-emulsions

  6. Luminogram workshop

    9-10. February Baltic Analog Lab and Berlin based Estonian artist Elvira Akzigitova invites to participate in a two day workshop teaching creative luminogram and electric photography techniques in darkroom.

    Think of light-sensitive materials as surfaces with near magical properties. 
    With such darkroom techniques as luminogram and electric photography, a possibility of trapping light movement and making direct impressions on photo paper can reveal itself. The cameraless approaches are intended to liberate everyday forms from their usual associations and to create “pure” painting with light.
    By using various light sources and a device called the Violet Wand, the participants are welcomed to practice alternative darkroom techniques that create a challenge to the doctrine of straight visual representation. We will be looking at shapes, textures and delicate relationships between materials in a new light. 

    Programme:
    - introduction to luminogram technique using various light sources and photo sensitive paprer
    - introduction to electric photography using Violet Wand device
    - individual work in the darkroom

    Elvira Akzigitova is an experimenter who spends long hours in the dark with a red light, trying to capture the trace of light and its tactile essentials. In addition to traditional analog photography tools and light sources, she also has a rather unusual tool called Violet Wand in her arsenal. By electrifying organic matter with this secret weapon, she succeeds in revealing what is otherwise hidden to the eye, but visible on light-sensitive materials. According to the artist, she works on the edge of photography and painting, just where these two practices meet and blend. Alternative, and at times, antique processes, abstract - inward looking images - Elvira decisively replaces the humanist documentary with a display of photographs presented as themes or events in themselves.

First, working with found footage and making loops with flat prints (or rayograms) in a negative and B&W reversal process as well as solarisation. Then playing with this material in several projectors in order to do a visual music for the opening event of the festival on March 22. All that backed with a little theoretical introduction, in order to understand what is going on.

    Gaëlle Rouard has been making handmade films since the early 90′s. She is a long time member of the “102 rue d’Alembert”, a venue dedicated to the diffusion and creation of experimental music and film. She also ran “Atelier MTK” (a craft film laboratory) for twelve years until 2006, in Grenoble, France. An alchemist specialising in the precipitation of silver on film, she has developed and is still exploring various methods of chemical processing on film, while experimenting with the possibilities of live multi-projection in both solo and collaborative forms.

  15. Photos from Chromaflex workshop

    11.-12. november, 2017 we were hosting a 16mm colour film Chromaflex workshop with Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie from Australia (Nanolab)


  16. 16mm Chromaflex workshop

    11. un 12. novembrī Baltic Analog Lab viesosies Ričards Tuijs (Richard Tuohy) un Dianna Barija (Dianna Barrie) no Austrālijas, Melnburnas, lai pasniegtu divu dienu radošo darbnīcu, kuras laikā tiks apgūts viņu pašu izveidotais "cromaflex" process.

    "Cromaflex" ir jauna fotoķīmiska tehnika, kas ļauj kombinēt dažādus attēla attīstīšanas veidus uz vienas filmas. Turklāt šīs izvēles var tikt izdarītas pilnā apgaismojumā. Šī tehnika ļauj radīt gan krāsainu pozitīvu, gan krāsainu negatīvu, gan melnbaltu attēlu vienas lentes un arī atsevišķa kadra ietvaros. Un, tā kā darbs ar krāsām šajā gadījumā notiek gaismā, ir iespējams vērot krāsu ķīmiju veicam savus brīnumdarbus mūsu acu priekšā! Šī darbnīca dos vajadzīgās zināšanas un pārliecību, lai D.I.Y. garā ar krāsu filmu un ķīmiju darītu visu, ienāk prātā.

    11. novembrī
    Filmēsim uz 16mm krāsu kopijas filmas, attīstīsim to līdz "cromaflex" procesa pirmajai fāzei, aptversim teoriju un sāksim spēlēties ar attēliem.

    12. novembrī
    Pievērsīsimies "cromaflex" procesa galvenajam posmam, liekot līmlenti un citus ķīmiju neuzņemošus materiālus uz sagatavotajām filmām un pēc izvēles attīstot tos "cromaflex" tehnikā.

    Ričards Tuijs un Dianna Barija vada Austrālijas vienīgo super8 filmu laboratoriju „nanolab”, kur sastopas roku darbs un industriālās kino tehnoloģijas. Abi ir līdzdibinātāji un biedri arī Melburnas analogā kino mākslinieku kolektīvā Artist Film Workshop. Ričards un Dianna veido filmas gan kopīgi, gan individuāli, taču abos gadījumos tās lielākoties sakņojas „pašdarinātā” kino tradīcijā, priekšplānā izvirzot interesi par filmas struktūru un formālajiem aspektiem. Autoru darbi ir rādīti festivālos un atsevišķās programmās Austrālijā, Eiropā, Ziemeļamerikā un Āzijā. Būdami pašdarinātā kino doto iespēju atbalstītāji, viņi daudz laika pavada, lai dalītos ar savām zināšanām dažādās meistardarbnīcās gan Austrālijā, gan citur pasaulē. 

    Darbnīca notiks angļu valodā.
    Dalības maksa par abām dienām - 40 eiro (ar priekšapmaksu).
