In preparation for Arles, I’m printing a project in platinum-palladium. This morning, on a whim, I tried printing out a digital negative according to recommendations from members of the alternative photographic processes mailing list. The yellow-green color is intentional, these inkjet pigments are said to absorb the most UV.
What can I say, it works!. A couple of prints from this negative, printed onto run-of-the-mill overhead-transparency, are hanging on the line to dry. I enjoy the ease of dodging, burning and sharpening that this step in the production of a Pd/Pt print gives me.
