Dear Alt Photo Members,

Precision Digital Negatives & the Platinum/Palladium Print

In San Francisco 

Four Day Hands On Workshop

Monday, November 3 — Thursday, November 6, 2008

With Mark Nelson

This will be an exciting workshop with a lot of new information. Not only will you learn the PDN system and use it to successfully make beautiful Platinum/Palladium prints, but also you should go home with the knowledge and skills to use this system with your own workflow and equipment for Platinum/Palladium and other alternative photographic printing processes.

We will cover:

* Calibration of the alternative process to make a digital negative.

* Conversion of RGB images to monochrome.

* A simple workflow for preparing images to make negatives.

* Crafting digital negatives.

* Making Hybrid Curves with Curve Calculator II.

* The best methods of tweaking chemistry & negative to make the perfect print.

* Maximizing tonality in prints.

* How to coat, print, and successfully process Platinum & Palladium prints—it’s foolproof!

* The latest information from my work on controlling humidity and PT/PD emulsion speed!
