    Its occurred to me just now that pictorialism and obscurantism(in pyjamas) are close cousins

    Platinum prints vs emulation

    So, are they still alive and where to contact them?

    To the best of my knowledge Salto Drukkereij was using offset printing to emulate platinum prints. To enhance the tonal range of bw/ sepia images, printers often use additional colours to enhance contrast and tonal range. If done properly, offset can deliver results that can look even more spectacular than continuous tone images. This is why many mistake such output for large format platinum prints.

    I'm sorry of digging this old thread up, and that being said I admire the work Nick has done and look forward for seeing the whole trilogy in Fotografiska in Stockholm this summer.

    Not sure if Nick reads this forum anymore, but if there'd be anyone else to answer my question I'd be happy. Nick has stated many times that he can get better tones with Photoshop from the negatives. For what I've understood he uses ND-filters and exposes for the sky. Then he digs the underexposed tones in Photoshop. I've read he uses Nikon Scan 9000. I have a Epson V700 and I bet it's nothing as close to the Nikon, but I still can't think I could get anything useful out of the scans if I had to Photoshop them and print in large. My question is, what kind of files are the raw files from the scanner from where this kind of method can be used for high-end prints?

    Better asking this at the DPUG site and certainly should not take a old thread with 75 posts into such a new direction! That said I use a 9000 and have for many years. His technique is spot on and works great.

    The magic of the internet.

    I could be arguing with a guy on this thread who has since passed on into the great void 5 years ago.

    Answer me damn it....answer me.....
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Nick Brandt is my age, so I hope he's around and in good health, and maybe he has a google alert or some such set up, so maybe he might check in. On APUG, there should be no inhibition about resurrecting old threads. It's better that users do some research and expand an old thread than start a new one on something that's already been discussed, in my opinion.

    That said, let me quote what I already posted in a now-deleted post, slightly revised:

    While it's great to have Nick Brandt here discussing his process, discussions of scanning for print purposes are generally off topic for APUG, but they are exactly the sort of thing discussed at APUG's sister site, http://dpug.org. Just so this doesn't go too far astray, let's say, Nick, if you want to tell us what you do, that's okay, but, others, if this turns into a discussion of recommendations about one kind of scanning vs. another kind of scanning, making digital negatives, and what atelier does the best hybrid prints, then that would better be pursued on the hybrid digital/analogue forum.

    I'm glad this old thread got resurrected, reading Mr. Nick Brandt's posts provide great insights. The questions though, should be asked elsewhere. AFAIK. DPUG is pretty dead, but I am a big time "hybrid-photograher," so anyone is welcome to email me and may be there's something I can share.
