I've been interested in the platinum/palladium printing process for a while and have decided to do a bit of research.  Just ordered "Platinum and Palladium Printing"  from Amazon.  I've found the Bostick and Sullivan site and would like to hear from anyone with experience in this technique or knowledge of other resources.

Might be an interesting topic for a weekend workshop.  Not that I have any real aspirations of selling any of my "fine art" prints, but I get a strong sense that a hand printed platinum or palladium print might be more marketable than an inkjet and so there might be a larger potential audience than the esoteric nature of the topic might suggest.

Tim,

www.pcnw.org has, on occasion, offered weekend workshops in platinum/palladium printing. Jahnavi teaches them (info@developinglight.com) and might be able to give you some good pointers. Unfortunately my schedule has never given me the opportunity to take the class.

Planning on platinum printing some penguins come February?

Icebergs might be kinda cool as well

I find that as time goes by I'm becoming less and less interested in color.  Or to put it another way, I'm finding that color is way to complicated for me.

Heh. Wait until you see how much T-Max is coming along for the ride with me in January!

You ever done lith printing? That's crazy fun stuff.

My dad was a hobby print maker and photographer - he did some litho stuff when I was a kid.

T-max?  What's that??

Tim,

Two of the best resources on the net for PT/PD printing are: AlternativePhotography.com and APUG

In Toronto, Elevator Digital and Gallery 44 offer PT/PD workshops, or have in the past.

Also, in Toronto, the place to get PT/PD chemistry is Nymoc at 24 McGee Street,  416.465.1929. Another resource for supplies in the US is Photographer's Formulary. They also make small PT/PD kits that I find provide a better starter kit than B&S.

Might be an interesting topic for a weekend workshop.
Not sure anyone from this site would show up though?

Regards, Art.

Thanks, I've discovered AP and APUG.

Appreciate the reference to a local source for chemicals...

Still haven't got my care backage from Bostick and Sullivan, but it's on the way.
