Palladium and Gum Printing with Digital Negatives

In this workshop you will learn to make digital negatives using the QuickCurveDN program. Then you will use these negatives to make beautiful palladium prints. We’ll also cover the fundamentals of the gum bichromate process, allowing you to add layers of gum bichromate over palladium, which can result in prints ranging from subtly toned to wildly colorful. Combining all of these processes will allow you to use both sides of your brain to produce work that is uniquely yours. Basic Photoshop skills will be helpful, but this workshop is open to all levels.
