Paladium/Platinum Prints

For photo history I did a series of 7 still lifes of plants that were up in the greenhouse here on campus. I attempted to do them with real 4x5 negatives but it had so many problems that I just broke down and did them digitally. I printed of digital negavites using a special type of transpareny called pictorico. Then I painted on a paladium solution onto a watercolor type of paper. Then exposed it to uv light and develped it. I really liked the brush strokes and I was pleased with how the yellow stain came out. I got an A on the project

On March 25 I took a trip to a ghost town in Montana called Bannok. It is just a bunch of old homes and buildings. I was thinking of a different image when Julie asked this girl if I could take her photographs. She seemed so scared when I actually got the camera infront of her that i ditched the first idea and just to a portrait. I am amazed as how big her eyes are. I told Julie after that she picked a good one.

Greenhouse again

I took these photographs yesterday. I am planning on making digital negitives out of them and make some sweet plateium prints. I hope they will work.

I don't think that Kelly and I went all the way to Montana but we got pretty close. I was glad he came with and he wasn't as buggy as he could have been.
