    Gotta see this video on platinum printing

    What got me fired up about platinum prints was seeing George Tice's platinum prints in SF. The gallery employee said they're made by Salto in Belgium.

    Tice makes his own 8x10 Platinum prints. Bigger sizes like 20x24 and larger are made in Belgium.

    I live in San Francisco and am a fan of Tice's work. What gallery is he showing at?

    I think it's the Scott Nicols Gallery on the fourth floor. It becomes a blur after I've hopped a few galleries. But such fun!

    Totally awesome.

    Here's another video that shows Albert Watson making the images shown in the platinum video. He's using a Phase One back on his Hassy. D'oh!!

    The shots of him holding a mug with a cute kitten on it gave me a laugh:

    Great to see Mike Ware in person (video). Why do they always have to have a soundtrack to everything these days!
    They have a very slick process here. For those who haven't done platinum, it doesn't need to be this slick.
    Also, why is he making three negative separations for a B&W platinum print? How the hell would one print a platinum print with three negatives?

    They make three negatives with high, medium and low tones through a computer that are full size to the print. Then they line up all three negs to expose the print. At least I think that,s what they do by my reading of what I viewed. It,s toward the front of the video.

    I think that's cool. What I don't get why 3 negs sandwiched? Isn't the point is to separate the exposures. This is still all new to me. Appreciate if someone explained.

    Everyone just close your eyes when you see those big, digital negatives. Pretend he's got a really big film camera.

    Seriously though, I'm curious about why they do the separation with three negatives like that as well.

    I would assume that they do it via 3 negs in order to maximize the tonal range. The negative printers are not able to capture the entire range in one print so they break it down into multiples. Again that is just an assumption.
