If you’ve looked at your prints and crave more depth, more beauty than your inkjet printer can deliver and you weren’t able to deliver upon hitting command-P, then this is the process for you.
Platinum/Palladium printing is an incredibly beautiful, tactile, and archival process and this workshop is the perfect introduction. This intensive, hands-on workshop with the emphasis being on printing and only printing is designed so you will leave with a solid understanding of the process, which will enable you to continue on your own. Not only will you become proficient at it, but you will also have the opportunity to learn with a small group of fellow photographers who, by shared experience, will make the task both easier and more enjoyable. Palladium printing, like silver printing, takes time to master and this class will provide an excellent beginning. Class time is devoted entirely to printing, printing, and more printing. Lots of it.
The workshop takes place in my studio in LaConner, WA, which was designed primarily for alternative processes and is a great place to spend time and work. Lunches will be provided, as will coffee and juice in the morning.
We will not make enlarged negatives in this workshop as there is not enough time to address it adequately. You will be expected to bring appropriate negatives to class. They can be made by either you on your computer or done at your favorite service bureau.
