We began by making five new photographs together, using 5x7 inch film, working on the Penumbra Foundation rooftop and Studio B. The idea was to demonstrate proper exposure for Pt/Pd negs. Then we developed them in PMK pyro. After I demonstrated coating and prep, and development and clearing techniques using the group portrait, each of the five students got to make one print by the end of the day. Today, we'll be printing all day long from the eight negatives, using Hahnemühle Platinum Rag paper.

I'm off to NYC tomorrow to teach my weekend "Traditional Platinum" workshop at the Penumbra Foundation. Posts here may be sparse, or prolific, depending on how hectic things turn out to be.
