Some Technical Notes from David Michael Kennedy

David Michael Kennedy is an accomplished photographer and palladium printer. His landscape work is moody and immediate. I love his portrait work - and the way he expresses them in his prints. Rangefinder Magazine has an interesting profile on him.

But, once again, I digress.

He has published some extensive technical notes on palladium printing technique on his website that I stumbled across while looking for information on how much Tween 20 (a non-ionic detergent - by the way) to use to help an emulsion, in my case cyanotype, absorb into the fibers of the paper.

Realize, dear reader, that many of these alternative processes are related - or at least have related challenges. Scout around in other processes when looking for solutions to a problem you may run into.
