Weekend Workshop: Deep Dive into Platinum Palladium Printing

Sat, Mar 02

  • 14 East 800 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84111
The platinotype (a print made solely of platinum metal salts) was first patented by William Willis in 1873 for the Platinotype Company. The cheaper and easier to obtain palladium was introduced into the emulsion during World War I when platinum became valued for its use in explosives. This weekend workshop will focus on this more traditional platinum-centric printing while experimenting with lesser-known developers for split-toned printing. Students will use digital images to create digital negatives and we will discuss the general philosophies behind adopting a calibrated digital negative workflow for platinum palladium printing.
