This coming weekend I am taking a Platinum Printing class at Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, Oregon. The first thing we will learn is how to make digital negatives. I have gone through some old photos trying to decide what to print and I have come up with a few candidates.

I am still struggling with my computer woes and have not been able to get all my photo library onto my new computer. It’s a slow process. So I would usually have more to choose from, but I think these will do.

I have a couple more, but the negatives belong to a friend and I am thinking of printing them as a surprise so can’t share them now.

Hopefully I will have some nice prints to share next week. My own UV light box has been built. I have purchased my contact frame and paper. After class I will order my chemicals and trays and then I can start printing at home. Excited.
