The Platinum Printing Workshop: Platinum/Palladium Printing Made Easy (Paperback)
This is the new, revised and significantly extended third edition.
Platinum/palladium prints are renowned for their grace and beauty. The process was invented in the nineteenth century and still thrives as 'The Reigning Queen' of fine art photographic printing.
The Platinum Printing Workshop, now in its third edition, shows you how to make beautiful platinum/palladium prints. It guides you through your first decisions, and then moves on to more advanced topics such as how the image is formed, techniques for contrast control, and the power of humidity.
With 212 pages, this book covers the traditional 'Developing-Out' process with all its main variants (A+B, Dichromate and Na2), plus the 'Printing-Out' processes (Malde-Ware and Ziatype).
New in this edition is an extensive 33 page formulary detailing the materials, recipes and usage of the platinum/palladium chemistry.
The author's accessible and jargon-free style makes this book easy to read, and helps you to start to make great prints straight away.
