    Folks,

    I have been asked to give a day-long demonstration of combination gum bichromate and palladium printing techniques. This demonstration will be hosted by the New England Large Format Photography Collective.

    The demonstration will be given the day after the View Camera Conference (May 23) in Springfield, Ma., so anyone who is planning to go to the conference will be in the area at the right time.

    The cost for the demonstration is $135 per person, including lunch.

    You can see some information about the demonstartion at my website.

    There are only a few seats left for the demonstration, so I advise anyone interested to make contact quickly to avoid disappointment.

    Also, I will be participating in several of the seminars at the VCC right before this demonstration. I look forward to meeting any APUG members at the conference. Please feel free to come up and introduce yourselves.

    "Day-long gum-over palladium demonstration"

    Sounds really interesting and well worth what you're asking.

    But I can't resist: Will it be followed by an all-day sucker over silver?

    Graeme,

    Well, I have to admit I prefer to call them 'combination process prints' in general, and 'combination gum bichromate and palladium prints' more specifically. This is because there is an unlimited number of combinations that can be made, using various processes, depending on the desired aesthetic.

    For example, tri-color gum prints that many people make are often combination gum and cyanotype prints. It is possible, within limits and compatibility constraints, to print many different processes in combination, and gum and palladium is really only one combination from this approach to crafting an image.

    Michael, sounds fancy! I'll have to remember this when people ask what a certain print is--maybe the title will outweigh the lack of talent :wink:

    Sorry I can't make it up north to the workshop, it sounds like a doozy!

    I just like to call 'em 'gum-overs'. The fewer syllables, the better (of course, I provide more details in writing on the back of the print).
