About this workshop:
Known for its velvety blacks and rich tonal range the first platinum/palladium prints were made in the 1860s. As technology and chemistry has improved over the 100+ years photographers are still drawn to the process for its rich blacks and striking dynamic range. Join James O’Connell in the dark room as he leads you through the steps to creating your own hand-coated Platinum Palladium prints. Each student will need two submit two images when registering. We will be working on smaller prints in this workshop so that we can practice coating, experiment with chemistry, and perfect our prints. This is a great entry point into the deep world of Platinum/Palladium printing.
All chemistry and supplies have been donated by Bostick & Sullivan.
