Platinum Over Pigment Printing & Digital Negative Workshop
Please note, this event has expired.
Combine early printing techniques with modern technology in Kerik Kouklis’s new Platinum printing workshop!
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. Whether you have experience in the darkroom or not, if you’re interested in making color platinum/palladium prints, this workshop is for you.
A background in Photoshop and previous experience with alternative processes will help but are NOT required.
Kerik Kouklis is a fine art photographer who specializes in the handmade photograph combining a contemporary eye with 19th-century processes to produce work that is uniquely his own. He has been working with these processes since 1990, and is known as a skilled practitioner and teacher of the platinum/palladium process and the combined gum-platinum process. In 2004 Kerik began working with the wet plate collodion process, which brought a new series of portraits and still-life images into his portfolio.
