    Re: Paper negatives

    First time doing a paper negative. Really enjoyable, and super easy.
    I printed this one on different paper than I shot it. Details:

    Paper negative shot on Oriental Seagull G-3 , 16 second exposure at f/5.6
    Contact printed on expired Ilford Multigrade IV FB, using the bathroom light for about 5 seconds, developed in PF 130.

    Camera was Calumet Cadet 4x5 with a Kodak Ektar 127mm

    Great image, well done.

    I'm assuming you flashed the print to fill in shadows & reduce contrast?

    The photograph and the thing being photographed are not the same thing.

    Thanks!
    Sorry, reading back I realize I wasn't clear, so I've edited that part.
    The 5 second exposure with the bathroom light was how I made the contact print, rather than using light from an enlarger like I usually do.

    Thanks for sharing! Could you say how far away from the contact your bathroom light was, and how much Watt the buld has? This would make it easier to get a good starting point for my own contacts

    To answer myself … for my bathroom it’s about 2 seconds with a diffuse 5W LED bulb in roughly 2,3m height.

    Glad you got it to work! Counter to ceiling height for me is about 6 feet I'd say, and the bulb is an 840 lumen LED bulb (about 60w tungsten equivalent) shooting through some pretty heavy plastic diffusion. Lots of variables as you can tell.

    Thanks! There’s no way around testing, I guess. Good to have a starting point though.

    Something that I found works very well and extremely consistent is to use my canon flash, mounted on a stand and pointed at the ceiling. I set the power to 1/32 and then I can fire off a set number of pops to get the ammount of light I am after. Test strips are a breeze. One pop for each inch.
