    Alt-Process Prints from Digital Negatives or Positives

    Digital negatives have become an important part in the workflow of a lot of alternative process printers.
    One can print images using both analog as well as digital images.
    I think it has done a lot to resurrect the interest in the alternative processes.
    So, what about a thread dedicated to alt-process prints using digital negatives or positives from non-large format images?
    Platinum, Palladium, Cyanotypes, Kallitypes, Carbon, Gum, Photogravures etc. They are all welcome.
    Post them!
    I'll kick things off with one of my own:

    "Seated" - a gum-bichromate print


    Original image shot with Nikon d700 and Nikon 85mm f1.4 lens.
    Dig neg created on Pictorico, Epson 4900
    Printed on Saunders-Waterford paper.

    A small (6" X 9") carbon print on baryta from a digital negative printed with an Epson R3000 with QTR using a profile I designed. Image capture was DSLR.

    I believe this image, and this thread belong somewhere other than the Large Format Forum. A digitally captured image is not large format.

    That is why it is in the "Lounge", where non-large format stuff are relegated.

    Some use LF cameras, scan the negative and make an enlarged digital negative so they can print much larger without having to deal with a much larger camera - for a variety of reasons.

    The size and weight difference in carrying a 4x5 compared to a 12x20 outfit are major. Digital negatives make larger final contact prints a viable process.

    Not to mention the fact that ALL of the old duplicating films formerly made for creating enlarged internegs are no longer produced.
