99.9% of you guys are digital, so many of you don't know this technique. Basically, these are scans of of prints. The paper was hand coated with a platinum salt emulsion and the pic was made by contact printing with UV light for 16 minutes. It was then developed in ferric oxalate, fixed in citric acid, and washed in water.



The prints obviously look better than what you see on screen.

See, this is why I shoot digital...I am VERY bad when it comes to chemicals...burns, spills...UGH! That being said, no creativity from my end when it came to shooting film. Pretty much shot the film and had someone process it. So dumb I am when it comes to that stuff!

Very nice work! I can only imagine how great the actual prints look!

Yep, I know of the technique, though I've never done it. It's something I've always wanted to try. Platinum print, huh? I'll bet the actual prints look amazing!

Since they're contact printed, what did you shoot these images with, a large format camera, or did you make an internegative?

It's seeing stuff like this that makes me wish I had more space in my darkroom to put more equipment, and the skill to know what to do with it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Nice work.

Heh heh, I shoot film mostly, but I'm still bad with chemicals. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I splashed pyro in my eye once... something I do NOT recommend doing. Ever. To put it mildly, it kinda burned a little. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

[/ QUOTE ]The thing is you don't need more space in the darkroom to do this. All you need is subdued light and the development can be done in regular light! Give it a try and post some pics when you do. Good luck.

Here's another pic.

Pyro in the eyes is not good. Here's a pic that may wash the memory of that pain away... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I don't consider myself that creative either. I'm just curious and like to experiment with chemicals! LOL It's a fond memory when one sees the first image come up in the developer. Just don't splash any chemicals on yourself any more!

Thanks for the comments.

Very, very nice. I've only seen platinum prints of architectural subjects, as I recall. Even given the limitations of scans, these are beautiful.

I used to do some gum dichromate stuff, never tried platinum, though.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you good sir for being such a great fellow craftsman. Platinum-paldium printing is a true skill, I have seen it done before, but never done it myself. The prints are magnificant to be seen, and I know what you said that the displayed image does not do them justice. Thank you for keeping that skill and technique alive in this time of digital. The images themselves I believe are worthy of this time consuming and expensive process.

That's really quite a compliment. I have seen some platinum prints that are extraordinary and I certainly feel that I have a lot more to experiment before I get to that level.

Here's another pic to enjoy - hopefully. Taken with a 4x5 and Polaroid Type 55 film.
