Gold toned kallitype on gampi paper, with a lot of defects and unbelievable scaning which
does not make justice to the print. I have moved, and I'm trying to settle in my new darkroom,
which is more difficult than I thought.

Just discovered a better scanning workflow that looks a hell of a lot better than what I was doing…This was my first 8x10 negative ever shot (lol notice the development issues) haven't scanned it until now

And best wishes to your lovely niece.

richardman
8-May-2016, 11:41
Thank you for the kind words! Processing C-41 is pretty simple. No more difficult than B&W really, except the temperature of the developer must be more precisely kept. I am doing 2+ projects now and the processing cost will kill me if I don't process them myself. As it is, I need to run gofundme just to buy film and stuff :-/ Ugh. Being poor artist SUCKS

We moved into a new (to us) house on May 1st and I've been looking forward to testing the light in the dining room as there is a wall of windows facing north. This was a simple, non-official shot with a wife that is so supportive and patient with my photo-insanity. Natural light only (I'll use a light bump with a reflector next time) using my AutoGraflex with the Heliar and Tri-X 320 processed in XTOL 1:1. Unprocessed scan with only dust removed in post.

Thanks! The film was Foma 100, with generous exposure. I usually rate this film at 64, and I used a spotmeter to place the
shadows at zone 3 with this rating. In fact, there is much more shadow detail in the negative than in this contact print,
which I think was a straight print at filter 2. The developer was pyro510, because I'd like to make some palladiotypes.

I love the light from north facing windows, it´s sort of smooth!
In my opinion natural light is better than flash light, but that´s just me.

Thank you! I do love natural light as well. This really was a super quick test of the unmodified light. Next time I think that just a touch of reflected light on the shadowed side would be just right. [emoji106]
