PH 394 Palladium Printing with Regina DeLuise

Palladium printing is a 19th century photographic process that yields an archival print with a long and rich tonal range. In this course, students use large format negatives and an ultraviolet light source to produce a final image of pure palladium. With focus on making the appropriate negative, the subtleties of hand-coated emulsion and the importance of paper choice. Since this is a contact process, knowledge of large format will enhance your experience, although we will cover enlarging techniques for 35mm negatives as well.
