More Pt/Pd Prints

Filed under: Alternative Processes,Pt/Pd Prints — Frank @ 8:45 PM

I have spent two more days in my dim room (i.e. the basement) making platinum/palladium (Pt/Pd) prints.

I have the wood stove cranked up so the basement is a good place to spend a couple of very cold days. It was 6 deg F below zero when I got up this morning. The high today was 6 above zero. It is -2 deg F as I write this about 8:30 in the evening. Brrrr!

All of these are small “draft” prints (4×5 inch images on 5x7ish Lenox 100 paper). I will eventually make larger prints (6×7.5 inch images on 8×10 inch paper) of all or most of these.

As with all alternative process prints, the scans are barely adequate facsimiles. One really needs to hold the actual object in ones hand to get the full effect.

  1. Hands down – the Bison shot is a definite wall hanger! It looks as if it was shot and printed back when photography was just getting up and running. If you have no space on your walls, I could easily find a spot for it 🙂

    I saw the NH Chronicle last night about a business in Dover still doing film!
