Holy Cow, Thanks Ghostcount for the kind words once again. I am very happy to hear that my Pt/Pd print has helped inspire you to take up this form of image making.
For a bit of history I was taking the master printing class with George Tice at the Maine Workshops a number of years ago. One day he did a Pt. demo. I was blown away. I had with me my favorite 8x10 negative. I asked if I could print it. George said sure, try 12 drops of this and 15 drops of that, then looking up at the clear summer sky said expose for six minutes. Well 20 minutes later I had the best print of that negative I ever saw.
It's not for everything but some images just cry out for Pt/Pd printing. It's just a certain look.
