Fox Talbot Process

Pop by 'n say hi!Fox Talbot Process Henry Fox Talbot is the father of the negative-positive photography process. Analogue or film-based photography, after falling out of favour as use of digital photography became widespread, is making a comeback. This resurgence it not too different to the re-emergence of vinyl records. Fox Talbot invented his analogue process in the 1830s. Unknown to Fox Talbot at the time, rival French inventor, Louis Daguerre was working on his own process. The Fox Talbot process had an advantage over the Daguerroypes though. Daguerre’s process created only one single print. Before the invention of the digital scanner, this meant you were stuck with single copy of the photograph. Although Fox Talbot could not produce prints directly with his camera, the ‘negatives’ he produced were much more useful. Negatives are essentially a recording of the image on film (with the modern process). If you hold a processed negative up to a light you will see the tones are reversed: the darkest parts (for example a tree trunk) would appear lightest and the lightest parts (for example white clouds in the sky) would appear darkest. This is not a major issue as the negative is an intermediate […]

Lacock Abbey – Home of Photography

Pop by 'n say hi!Lacock Abbey Lacock Abbey is a country house near to Chippenham in rural Wiltshire. Notably, it might be considered home to modern photography. It was here at his Lacock Abbey home, that British photography pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot developed a process for making photographic prints from negatives. At the time this was a comparatively huge advantage over the rival French, daguerreotype, process. Louis Daguerre and Nicéphore Niépce invented the daguerreotype photographic process. The process produced a single daguerreotype rather than a negative. In contrast to modern film photography, the process made the production of several copy images from one single shot difficult. Around the same time, British chemist Henry Fox Talbot was experimenting with his new salt paper and calotype, negative / positive process. At Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot developed his Fox Talbot process and the three primary elements of photography: developing, fixing and printing. He received a medal from the Royal Society for his work. He went on to write ‘The Pencil of Nature‘ a book detailing the new process developed by Henry Fox Talbot. Lacock Abbey Today, Lacock Abbey is home to the Fox Talbot Museum which the National Trust manage. The National […]
