Making some palladium prints seemed like a good idea for the last day of the year. A 9" print is draining and the setup is ready to do a 17.5" panoramic digital negative worked up from a 7x17 format original.
In the developer. This shot is the first I've printed from my current "winter light" series.
In the first clearing bath. This is a 100% pure palladium print. No standard platinum component, no contrast agent, no "Na2," which I really don't like to use. When it's completely dry and I've had a good look at it I want to print it again with a small amount (about 10%) of standard platinum solution to see what difference it makes. For years my "standard" formula for working from in-camera negatives has been mostly palladium with a 10-15% percent platinum component and no contrast agents of any sort. I want second generation negatives with sufficient density range to print exactly the same way.
