Platinum & Palladium Prints

Platinum & Palladium Prints

To better understand the present I had to understand the past. – I have been very influenced by the fore-fathers of photography – Now with a 21st century update.. I print a digital negative using an Epson printer – then hand-coat a light sensitive emulsion to a non sensitized cotton paper – placed the paper in a contact print frame and expose under UV light. For the 3rd photo, once I made the platinum/palladium print I traced the orchid flower using a white gel pen.
