Platinum and Palladium printing
On Wednesday I took a workshop, near Cambridge, in Platinum and Palladium printing.
It was really informative and some of the techniques shown such as digital negative making are also used in other types of Alternative printing processes, which is a useful crossover.
I chose negatives that I am already using for my project, so that I could see the difference with them printed differently.
I really like the effects of platinum printing, my final images were so clear and beautiful and platinum prints have a great tonal range.
I definitely think that this series looks better as a platinum print series. The images look more cold, melancholy and lonely.
I am planning to look into other alternative printing processes too, I will look at cyanotypes next, just need to gather a few things.
