About the Book
Learn to make your own black and white film and paper. For over 100 years, silver gelatin emulsions were synonymous with photography. Today, they are receding into history, potentially lost to us forever. Denise Ross, editor of The Light Farm website, has vowed to lead the rescue party. In her book, "The Light Farm, Volume 1: The Basics," you will learn to make and to use the three basic B&W paper emulsions, and three negative recipes. The negative recipes go beyond glass dry plate photography and include making and using handmade film.
