In-Person Learning Class
Platinum / Palladium Printing is an incredibly beautiful, tactile, and archival process. If you’ve looked at your prints and crave more depth and beauty than your inkjet printer can deliver, then explore the wonderful world of Platinum / Palladium Printing. This workshop, with an emphasis on digital negative creation and Platinum / Palladium printing is designed so that you will leave with a solid understanding and foundation of the process; you will gain all the knowledge and confidence needed to start making your very own Platinum / Palladium prints at home and the digital negatives needed to print them. Create digital negatives and their prints from scans, camera files, or even iPhone photographs.
You will learn the techniques and subtleties involved in making digital negatives, an introduction to the chemicals and equipment needed, how to mix the chemicals, what kinds of paper to use, and exposure techniques using the sun (not required) and UV exposure units; the workshop also explores paper coating with brushes.
Not only will you become proficient with the processes, but you will also share your experience with like-minded photographers who share your desire to make beautiful, velvety, elegant prints. No experience necessary, just bring your desire to learn new things. Sign-up now for this one and ½ Day adventure in photographic printmaking.
Saturday’s class session will be held at the Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP). Sunday will be held at Santa Monica College. Students should purchase one pack of 20 sheets (8.5 x 11) of Pictorico Premium OHP Transparency Film prior to the workshop for printing digital negatives (about $25-30).
Joseph Rheaume is a fine art photographer and educator from the western U.S. His passion for photographic image making was fostered at a very young age while watching his father make photographs with a Polaroid Land Camera. An active career in music gave way to his educational endeavors in 1996 when he began his studies at Arizona State University. By 2003 he had earned degrees in Engineering (BS) with an emphasis in Graphic Communications, Technology (MS) with an emphasis in Printing, and finally Fine Art (MFA) with an emphasis in Photography.
