First Finished Pt/Pd Prints

Filed under: Alternative Processes,Pt/Pd Prints — Frank @ 1:00 PM

Since my last post about platinum/palladium prints (one week ago), I have spent two full days and one partial day in the basement ‘perfecting’ (are things ever perfect?) my Pt/Pd process. I have learned a lot but I won’t bore you with the technical details.

Here are four finished prints. All either 4×5 inches or 4.5 inches square on 5×7 inch Lenox 100 paper. I have made larger (6×7.5 inch images on 8×10 inch paper) versions of the first two as well.

  1. These are amazing, Frank. Not sure how much more “perfect” you can make these? “Church Window Stairs” still remains my favorite. Good tonality throughout.

    Now, have you also counted up the number of prints you made this past year? I bet you’d be close to surpassing the number of shutter clicks 🙂

    Now, take a break – you deserve it.
