Platinum-Over-Pigment Printing and Digital Negative Workshop

Combine early printing techniques with modern technology in Kerik Kouklis’s new Platinum printing workshop!

The platinum/palladium process has been around since the late 1800’s. Prints in this medium are characterized by warm tones and relatively soft contrast. Valued in pictorialists times and again today, platinum/palladium prints are among the most venerated in photography.

In this class, you will learn the platinum/palladium process and digital techniques to colorize platinum/palladium prints. You will also learn to make digital negatives for contact printing using QuadTone RIP.

This is a fun and exciting way to combine early printing techniques with modern technology to make prints that have a unique look, somewhat reminiscent of hand-colored black and white photographs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In this intensive 3-day workshop, you will begin the first day by learning the platinum/palladium process and making prints. Kerik Kouklis will prepare negatives from your files before the workshop.

The second day you will learn to make high-quality digital negatives using the QuadTone RIP (QTR) program and Epson printers. You will learn how to calibrate and control this powerful tool in a straightforward way. A Photoshop script will be provided that makes deriving correction curves a snap.

On the third day you will learn the color printing step of the process, then finish the day by making several platinum/palladium over pigment prints. Print spotting, finishing, and presentation will be discussed.

Each student should provide digital camera files or high-quality color scans from film that will be made into digital negatives. 16-bit TIFF or PSD files are preferred. On Day 2, a computer with Photoshop and basic understanding of Photoshop is highly recommended.
