Correcting Tones in Palladium Printing
This "muddy" print needs to be corrected. The whites need to be whiter and the blacks, blacker. This can be accomplished by linearizing the tones, especially the mid-tones, of this print.
This can be accomplished by calibrating tones accurately to a gray step wedge. This can be done with standard step wedges and a process described by Ron Reeder and others.
Once applied, the results are dramatic, as can be seen in the subsequent posting.
