This year Bostick and Sullivan will offer a wonderful online tutorial:
BOSTICK & SULLIVAN PRESENTS: The Platinum Palladium Print – How to Make a 19th Century Photograph in the Modern Age, Wednesday, September 23rd, from 1:00pm – 2:30pm.
Meeting ID; 864 9659 8740
The platinum print has long been considered the most archival of all photographic processes. The beauty and subtle tonality of the platinum print persuaded masters like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sally Mann and Irving Penn to use the process for their seminal works. Fine art and wedding photographers choose the platinum print for heirloom portraits, portfolios and limited editions because of its permanence and handcrafted appeal. Learn how to combine the convenience of digital photography with this antique printing technique during this live demonstration and discussion.
Participants should expect to learn about:
*Platinum printing overview, history and its modern revival
