Several years ago my students used a first-generation digital camera and
took pictures around school. Those images were then put into an
image-editing program, sized and printed out onto transparency material in
the inverse so as to look like a photo negative. Those images were then
placed onto copper tooling foil that had been coated with Liquid Light photo
emulsion and burned onto the emulsion through a photo enlarger light. They
were developed in the darkroom using regular photo chemistry. I called the
process "Digital Dagereotypes" and had received funding for the process from
my Teacher Center's grant program.
