Platinum Palladium Printing with Leica

1

Alternative photographic processes are always a wonder to watch, especially when being done by contemporary masters like Manuel Gomes Teixeira. Have a look after the jump!

For the uninitiated, platinum/palladium prints are photographic prints made by a monochrome printing process that provides the greatest tonal range of any printing method using chemical development. It is one of the oldest alternative processes, dating as far back as 1830.

In this video, we follow modern platinum/palladium master Manuel Gomes Teixeira as he creates a platinum print – from capturing it with his camera, down to the finished product. Granted that he uses a digital camera in this video, the whole process involved in creating a platinum print is nothing short of amazing.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket.

    Geoffrey Berliner On Photographic Processes, Old and New

    Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
