    Carbon Transfer Prints

    Recently I have been doing a lot of carbon printing from original image capture that was either digital or medium format. Want to share a few of those with you in this thread, and am interested in seeing other carbon prints that began as other than LF film.

    The first image is 16"X23" in size and is on a fixed out silver paper, KC surface. I call it Galician Angel. Original capture was with digital capture in a cemetery on the coast in Galicia, Spain. The digital negative was printed on an Epson 7800 with my own QTR profile.

    Beautiful, Sandy!

    Both from a Diana Camera. On expired Kodak Tech-pan film, developed in Techinol (sp?).

    Contact printed, so they are still printed from the original negatives.

    Start with a noble and inspirational subject, add some clouds and mist, put that on top of some carbon pigment mixed in gelatin, and there you have it!!

    Sandy, that is a fantastic image.
    Your photo makes me appreciate the process and its value much more than any other carbon print I have seen before.

    No disrespect meant to anyone else here practicing carbon printing, of course.
