This question is directed more to those who contact print their negatives with t he resulting print being the finished piece. Large negs of 5x7 and up. I found I get a cleaner print that appears sharper when I contact print my 8x10' s using a small halogen lamp, the type purchased at Home Depot or Office Max typ e of stores. The ones using the very small 20-50 watt halogen lamps. I put it ab out 2-3 feet above the printing frame & then expose the Azo paper or regular pap er under it for the appropriate time. When some friends have looked at the resulting contacts they have picked the pri nts done under this little lamp as having better separation and apparent sharpne ss in comparison to those done under a normal 150 watt bulb and a 200 watt flood and spot. The prints look good and the system works well. Little inexpensive light that pu ts out a very clean light to print by. One I can easily carry with me when I tra vel so I can develop & print in a motel bathroom from time to time when checking that lenses, film & holders are all doing well. Anyone else try something like this & find an apparent difference? Or, as is oft en the case, am I seeing what I want to see?
