    Thank you, Roger. The print is quite nice. Better than I expected, actually. I thought for sure I would have to do a considerable amount of tweaking with the sensitiser, but nailed it first time round. I did make an extra tissue... now I'll have to photograph something else, I guess!

    The Kallitype process is capable of producing whites as white as the paper will allow. See the whites on the 2 Kallitypes I printed last month: https://www.spiritsofsilver.com/gall...age_2#Previous The muddy whites in your Kallitype is probably the result of overexposure during printing - at least that has been my experience. Note also the tiny flecks of whites in the cordgrass of the 3d print which had a reddish/brown color when I shot the negative. Overexposure here would have eliminated those specks which are seeds or something. The problem with that print is the sky which toned to a beautiful slate grey down to the mountain ridge but my scanning ability needs improving.

    Begging your pardon but the whites are NOT muddy. They are white. White where they should be white. I do know how to print. I've been printing for over 30 years, and white whites are important to me, just as luminous shadows are. A muddy print would never leave my darkroom. If you are ever in the area, I'd be happy to show you the print.

    Hi Andrew,

    Looks like a very nice carbon print. And you make the process look so easy a lot of viewers are thinking it must be a piece of cake. And darn, with carbon looks like you can make prints any color you like!!
