Intro to Lumen Printing

Creating unique prints with the sun and chemistry

Book Now (


In this introductory workshop participants will create uniquely toned photographic imagery using black and white photographic paper and the sun. 

This process will be taught in our darkroom but is easily replicated at home with a few simple tools and the know how.

The lumen print has a one of a kind appearance that hints at an X-ray effect and can include a multitude of different tones and colours depending on the light source.

This is an easy class that is suitable for adults and children alike. No prior experience is necessary and all materials are provided.

'Intro to Lumen printing' is scheduled to go ahead under most weather conditions but in the event of heavy cloud cover or storms, we may consider postponing to a sunny day for perfect prints.

NOIR Darkroom workshops will go ahead with a minimum of one enrolment and in general we aim to keep our classes small to ensure participant satisfaction and the quality of the classes. Sometimes you may find yourself in a private tutorial and others you may be in a small-medium group.
