Platinum Printing

Platinum Printing

July 31 – August 5, 2018 SAGA – Inderøy - Norway Tuition: NOK 8400 (~$1087.80 USD) Register at NORDphotography

Any photographer, working in any format, filmbased or digital, can make platinum prints today. Also known as platinum/palladium or platinotypes, this process dates back to the late 1800’s. The unique look of a platinum print is due to the emulsion being absorbed into the paper, rather than sitting on top and expanded steps between pure black and pure white both contributing to the deeper, richer feeling you experience when looking at these prints. The platinum tones range from warm black, to reddish brown, to expanded mid-tone grays that are unobtainable in silver prints.

This workshop will give the beginner platinum printer the knowledge and experience to make platinum prints. The more experienced platinum printer can use this workshop to build on your skill set and help solve problem printing issues. We will work primarily with the NA2 platinum/palladium process, but discuss other platinum processes. With plenty of one–on-one guidance and a focus on making prints, this workshop is guaranteed to build your skills.

Students should bring digital files of images they wish to print. Due to the cost of chemistry, and paper, the platinum printing is considered a high-end prosess. The print created is the most durable of all photographic processes.
