Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. Exposure to the action of the rays of the sun.
- n. In photography, the injurious effects produced on a negative by over-exposing it in the camera to the light of the sun, as blurring of outlines, obliteration of high lights, loss of relief, etc.; also, the effects on a print resulting from over-printing the sensitized paper or other medium.
- n. photography Whole or partial reversal of tone in a negative or photographic print, such that dark areas appear light or vice versa.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. (Photog.) Injury of a photographic picture caused by exposing it for too long a time to the sun's light in the camera; burning; excessive insolation.
- n. exposure to the rays of the sun
“Man Ray's "Solarized Male Torso" uses a method known as solarization, introducing light as part of the developing process, and is projected to bring at least $70,000.”
“Thus, when immersing a plate sensitive to all radiations, visible and invisible, in a very dilute solution of nitric acid, bichromate of potash, or hydroxyl, it was shown that if the plate were exposed to light, first the parts acted upon by the red rays were reduced before the parts not acted upon at all by the spectrum, thus conclusively proving that light itself helped forward the oxidation or so-called solarization of the image.”
“These X-rays darken the acrylic by introducing defects color centers in a process called solarization.”
“Occasionally during my darkroom days, I experimented with solarization of photographs that were still being developed by turning the room light on for a very brief period, a second, perhaps.”
“But Leigh Miller worked for him and was a-- a lover of ManRay's for a while, and she accidentally in the darkroom, by turning the lights on when she wasn't supposed to, invented a technique he called solari -- they call solarization of prints.”
“Expose an impressioned plate, that has been sufficient time in the camera to become solarized, to the vapors of bromine, and the impression will be fully developed and exhibit no signs of solarization.”
“To prevent solarization, coat a plate as usual, expose to the action of light any required time”
“This I am led to believe is occasioned by the action of light on the yet sensitive portions of the plate, and made to appear only by subsequent exposure to mercury, being equivalent to solarization.”
“If the solarization be very deep, apply the lamp beneath, and warm the plate a trifle.”
