The most exciting workshop for Platinum/Palladium printing and Digital Negatives available! In this exclusive alternative process workshop with Mark Nelson, master printmaker and photographer, you will explore the platinum/palladium process, one of the most beautiful printmaking mediums ever created. The extremely long tonal range of this process gives prints very subtle and delicate tonalities that surpass any other hand-made print. This four-day workshop provides participants with a complete experience of creating digital negatives from start to finish. The focus will be on workflows and techniques that produce a variety of types of prints that will give your portfolio a stunning signature look: full range prints, shadow prints, high-key prints, vintage prints, and gray prints. Mark will teach you how to combine analogue and digital methods that maximize tonalities to actually produce more tones than possible when printing inkjet prints. These advance techniques are only taught by Mark in this workshop. No prior experience with platinum/palladium printing necessary. Topics covered in this workshop: You will learn a great workflow for making beautiful platinum and palladium prints, but you will also learn how to fashion the best possible digital negatives for any alternative process you wish to work with. Not every print has to have a good black and white! You will learn a whole variety of print styles that break this rule—shadow prints, hi-key prints, gray prints. However, the trick in breaking this rule is to get all the information from your original photograph in the final print. How to burn and dodge in an analogue fashion with a digital negative more effectively than working in Photoshop to get a richer looking print. Mark will teach you, in very simple terms, the basic relationships between the digital world and the analog world of printmaking, and how you can use these relationships to maximize the amount of tonal detail that is transferred to your final print. This workshop will give you a very powerful array of tools to choose from when fashioning your final print editions or portfolios. October 26 – 29, 2017 Learn More:
