To make the platinum photograph, its easy to learn!

Contrary to what some people say, making a platinum photograph is not very difficult. It was done in the 1880's with the lowest of technologies. And it is still done in a similar way today. But it does require a camera, a photograph, an enlarged negative that can be done at any repro house, some simple chemicals, and the sun. The best part of the platinum photograph is its look, and its permanence. So, if you only make one platinum print, of yourself, you will have a photograph that will last as long as any of your art, and, if you have museum collections, it is a perfect companion for your work.

So just let me know if you want to go down that road, and I will work with each of you to guide you along. You will end up with a very satisfying result. Best wishes, Gary
