    Platinum Process-Where to get training?

    Hi, folks...

    It has been a long time since I last visited and I hope to be a regular in the future.

    So, my interest is in platinum printing.

    Living in the Atlanta area, I would like to get in touch with someone who can teach me how to do the process. Also, I would like to use a digital negative from a scanned negative but have no idea how to get this going.

    Any help would be greatly recommended!

    Dave- as to digital negatives, there are some good books out there on how to make digital negatives for pt/pd printing, but it's kind of off-topic for APUG, so I'll just point you to Amazon.com and Bostick & Sullivan for some tips in that direction. For the process itself, I teach it out of my studio in Washington DC. If you're interested, PM me and I can provide you with some more information as to dates and prices.

    Hey, thanks, I will keep that trip in mind... will definitely check on the dates and prices.

    The reason I mentioned a digital negative is I generally work with 35mm film with My Leica M3. I have a portrait from my S3 2000 that makes a nice 8x10 portrait and would like to see about getting it printed using Platinum...

    ...and Sandy is a great teacher. I did my first Pd/Pt print with him up the first (and only) APUG conference.

    You might want to see if others in your area are interested in a pt/pd workshop - raise question in the appropriate regional forum. If enough interest, you might be able to entice one of the pt/pd masters to conduct such a workshop. We in NE Florida did just that for a workshop at Daytona conducted by Tilman Crane. It was a very valuable experience.
