    Too true, I have gone from using xray negs to digital negs through my new Epson p800, amazing difference in density.

    Untitled California, 2014.



    I shot the negative 4 years ago to make a salt print but for some reason never printed it until this morning.

    Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco, 2018.



    A "must" for tourist - especially when the Exploratorium was located in the same complex as when this negative was taken - and a favorite among local photography enthusiasts both professional and amateur. Ansel Adams hung out a lot here during the 1915 San Francisco World's Fair. I shot this negative way back in 2013 with either the 360 symmer-s or 480 apo-ronar to make a salt print with. Either I did and didn't like the result or I just forgot about it. I came across it a few weeks back when looking for another negative to reprint. I had taught myself how to turn a black line on a print from emulsion damage into a white line and completely spot it out and decided to print it as a kallitype. I'm glad I did for it's a beautiful print to look at - it "glows" at you from a distance. I toned it for 22 minutes with a gold-ammonium thiocynate toner listed in the James book. A palladium toner would add a little "rouge" typical of the twilight skyline in San Francisco.

    Re: The Kallitype Thread

    Well it turns out that it was shot on Delta 100 with the 480 apo-ronar at f32⅓ for 1/15 second on 2 June 2013. I had misplaced my notebook back then and, thinking it was lost, replaced it so I now have 2 notebooks for field notes. My notes indicate that I shot a second negative of the same scene so there must be another one lurking in the negative boxes - probably developed for silver gelatin printing. Oh, and there is no emulsion damage to this negative - it was on the negative that I was originally looking for and knew that it was damaged.

    BTW, I'm trying my hand at writing a blog for my website and if successful will have the first post up in a few days on the origins of landscape photography in the United States.

    View From Stage Road. - San Gregorio, California , 2018.



    Due to its coastal location, this is a tricky landscape to photograph. Also the paper appeared to have little lumps in it when coating which made the scan appear rough. I've have admired this landscape over the years and plan to reprint it using a palladium toner. Toyo 810 MII with a 5x7 back and 610mm apo-nikkor on FP4+.

    I reprinted it earlier today and toned in Palladium. Different color but it doesn't wow me. I'm thinking that Kallitype is not a good match for this scene and when conditions are right will go back and shoot it for C-41 and B&W.

    Re: The Kallitype Thread

    Here's an interesting Harvard University article that relates to the permanence of the apparently untoned Kallitype:

    http://hcl.harvard.edu/news/articles/2010/kallitype.cfm

    Apparently the silver in a properly processed but untoned print has the tendency to "mirror" or move slightly out of place over time.
