Our last assignment for our class was to do a lith print. Lith printing done in the traditional wet darkroom requires the use of a special developer to produce a print that looks grainy. I don’t quite understand the point of lith printing but the results do have a nice look to them. For our lith prints we once again chose to do them digitally. We first desaturated and sepia toned the images in Digital Photo Professional and than added noise to them in GIMP. We also adjusted the highlights/contrast to get a more lithy look. I really liked the final results of our photo manipulation, it makes them look like old photographs.
