Modern Techniques for Classical Printing with Emphasis on Luminosity Masks by Dan Anderson

Over the last few years there has been a constant evolution in the techniques available to photographers to use and wherever these new tools and techniques can be employed for increasing my own personal expression in my prints, I welcome and adopt them.

I will be showing several of these techniques that I now use including the use of luminosity masks and a layering technique to make images that I call timescapes.

I will also introduce a brand new method of making black and white images that doesn’t use any current method of conversion to black and white but rather exclusively uses luminosity masks as art objects themselves.

Daniel Anderson is a photographer whose ongoing personal work is primarily dedicated to the landscape in its many forms. For years he concentrated on the 8 x 10 view camera and techniques and methods perfected over years of hand processing and printing to create black and white images of exquisite artistry and sensitivity. Over the last decade, he has transitioned to a high end digital approach to image capture and printing resulting in increased control over the photographic process. 

He has photographed widely throughout the American West, Greece, Iceland, Italy, England, Scotland, Ireland and Antarctica. His work is primarily concerned with the natural scene and his camera has captured both the high drama of storms and vast panoramas as well as the delicacy of the intimate detail of the American Landscape. His work also includes a series of images of European Cathedrals and Abbeys and a series of Wisconsin barn interiors.

His work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe in numerous one-man exhibits and group shows. His work is included in many public and private collections. He currently has gallery representation in Ellison Bay and Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. He has written articles for Photo Techniques Magazine and other publications. 

Dan has studied with Ansel Adams and other contemporary masters of photography.
He has been an active teacher in photography, participating in many workshops throughout the United States. As founder of Wisconsin’s Door County Creative Photography Workshops, Dan has offered darkroom printing and other workshops to hundreds of students since 1984. In 2004, he began offering workshops in fine art digital printing.  He is also on the faculty of Door County’s Peninsula Art School and has served as a consultant and product beta-tester for several photographic paper companies.
