    That's very interesting to see 12x20 color. I'm curious to know how you scanned it.

    Thanks - my scanner just barely fits the 12x20 negative (Screen Cezanne).

    12x20 contact print.
    How do you align the negative and photo paper perfectly when you do contact print?

    Lovely - at first I thought it was a salt print on textured paper, but then realized thats just paper towels below it. I align my contact prints by taping the edge of the negative and use the top edge of the frame for the paper. For 5x12 I have a thin paper masking guide in an 11x14 frame aligned so that I get 1" around the image on all sides by just dropping the paper on top of the guide and negative. In your larger size it might be a worthy investment to have a custom contact print frame made.

    Thanks for your tips! I have a 14x23 contact frame. Maybe I should look for an exact 12x20 contact frame or make a mask as you do for your 5x12.

    I can only speak for myself here, which may not apply to your situation.

    I use a big piece of ANR plexiglass with metal handles on the edge to weigh down the negative and paper. Since there's no lip or edge, I can align the paper and negative easily. Back when I started doing contact prints, I just used 16x20 paper or 20x24 paper cut in half for 8x20 and 12x20 prints exactly. I could tell in the darkroom if the paper / negative was misaligned.

    That said, lately I've used 20x24 paper cut down to about 14x24 for contact prints, giving me a bit more wiggle room both for the print and for mounting with the edges showing (about 13x21). I can use the strip I cut off for test strips.

    However I am experimenting with photo corners for mounting to foam board as a different way of presentation, so might go back to the exact print size method.

    Nice print btw.
