Platinum Palladium Printing

Platinum Palladium Printing from Leica M Monochrom

I ran into this film online where photographer and Platinum Palladium printer, Manuel Gomes Teixeira, was invited by the Portuguese distributor of Leica to test the Leica M Monochrom. He made several images, converted one file into a digital negative and printing that. I just love watching this process, especially captured in a really nice way, made with the new Leica M.

Great Video about Platinum Prints

I absolutely LOVE platinum prints. They are so rich in tones and have a marvelous contrast. One day, when I grow up to be a big girl with heaps of time and money on my hands, I wish to dive into this process myself. Until then I’ll have to do with videos like the one below, passed on to me on Facebook by Janosch Simon. This past summer I went to William, the guy in the video, to see his studio, darkroom, platinum prints and do some collodion images…darn…I’m jealous of that place in so many ways! Hopefully we’ll meet again soon when I find some more time!
