14×17 Platinum/Palladium Print – Christian

This is a portrait I did of Christian, a friend of mine. He’s a personal trainer and dancer, originally from Argentina. The original print is from a 14×17 inch negative. I had to trim it a little because there is a flaw in the edge of the negative (not sure why exactly, I suspect the edge of the film slipped during development and got blocked by a ridge in the development tank). But that’s the beauty of working with such a giant negative – if you have to trim an inch off the edge, it’s not a big deal.

Ok- I’ve re-photographed the print now and it looks SOOOO much better – much sharper detail.
