If you are interested in registering for the Intro to Platinum/Palladium, you can find the link on the Photoworks website
The class is a hands-on two day course on the basics of platinum/palladium printing. Topics covered include history, technical basics (chemistry, equipment, paper), major process controls (negatives, exposure, processing), and fine controls (contrast, process variations). This is a film and wet darkroom focused course Ė I will be providing a 5◊7 camera and film, and we will shoot film negatives and make prints from the same. Digital negative making will NOT be covered due to the number of potential variables involved in working from student supplied images.
Please note: As of the date of this announcement, there are only two spaces remaining in the class Ė donít hesitate if you are interested. If this class sells out, I will discuss running it again in the fall with the Photoworks staff.
