    Re: In praise of Divided Pyrocat

    First test shot using Divided Pyrocat.

    Not quite satisfied with the composition though.
    Wish I had a bit more wide angle to include more of the vegetation on the right side.

    Also, the wind and the swans skewed up the mirror.
    But what the heck, just a test shot anyway ...

    8x10" TMax 100.
    Divided Pyrocat HD 20+20+100 for 5 minutes.

    Negative came out quite thin, the scanned data resides only at a small portion of the histogram.

    The developer (HD with glycol) was bought at the end of 2012,
    so I'm not quite sure if that's causing that or if it's intended to be.

    This isn't a great photo, but its the details that make it interesting.
    Crown Graphic
    Schnieder 135mm lens
    Arista EDU 100
    16 second exposure
    f22
    Divided Pyro
    Bright outdoor daylight coming in through windows
    iPhone photo of negative on light box, inverted in PS, no adjustments other than resize.


    Notice that you can see detail in the tire tread in the heavy shade, and still see detail in the scene outside in late afternoon daylight. I think it was about an 11 stop difference.
    Heres a shot of the negative

    Looking forward to it Sandy! Love Pyro but the few tries at divided pyro have been less than perfect!

Would have finished it earlier but I just don't multi-task as well as I used to!!

    Tim,

    Thanks for your kind remarks.

    Two-bath developers like Pyrocat, and Diafine, make control of very high contrast scenes a very straight forward proposition. You just expose for the shadows, and the developer does the rest.
