Platinum Palladium

As some of you may know, I am a big fan of the platinum palladium process. About 15 years or so ago, I first learned the process the traditional way, in the darkroom, making enlarged negatives. Last year I revisited the process once again in a private workshop with Carl Weese. This time however, we used modern day technology to make digital negatives. I was blown away with the results. I truly love this process not only for its tonal range, and archival qualities, but also for its beauty and depth. Prints must be seen in person to truly appreciate the process. What follows is one of my images printed using the process and a link to an article on some other alternative processes. Be sure to scroll down to the  short video on the work of Japanese photographer Nobuyuki Kobayashi. Enjoy.
