Reading the latest View Camera magazine articles on Alternative processes, I thought I'd check out doing some Palladium printing, but at the cost of the materials for an 8x10 print it's astronomical for an enthusiast. It was enlightening in reading that in the heyday of the art the cost of materials again was the limiting factor in the furtherance of the medium for enthusiasts, and besides what alternatives might be coming to the market at a lesser cost, caused the decline of the PT/PD medium overall. Maybe at the prices we're seeing in the market there will be a decline in interests again and the medium will fade? Surely many cannot experiment in this economy at the prices I'm seeing for supplies. Maybe history is repeating itself?
