Due to its wide tonal range, rich blacks, and intricate
highlight detail, platinum/palladium is often described as the most beautiful
of the photographic printing processes. In this beginning 4-session workshop,
participants will gain an introduction to the contemporary version of this process
with detailed hands-on exercises. Topics include coating techniques, chemical
contrast variants, paper choices, digital post processing, and more. We will
also discuss the difference between the NA2 method and others that exist. This
class will explore printing with medium format, 4x5”, or 8x10” black and white
negative film, as well as digital negatives. Students will leave with at least
a print, a digital negative, and a set of self-created reference examples for
future printing solutions. This workshop is open to students of all skill
levels but darkroom experience and photoshop skills are a plus. Class includes
all materials used during class meetings. Additional materials can be purchased
to use outside of class time.
