Platinum Printing with Digital Negatives/Film


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 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.
