Taken w/ Yashica 635 TLR, cropped
Welcome! so glad you can join us!

I like this print, I'm sure you've heard it being compared with a photo from a certain street-photography master from Japan.

Btw, I've never had a problem getting high contrast using matte, that and I haven't yet found a glossy paper that I like

That one I'd be proud of, the level of contrast is just right, in a punchy-kinda-way.

Winter. A time to work on last year´s negs. Every weekend I retreat into the darkroom, with me a hot cup of tea and a blues cd. Every week I produce a set of 4 prints, 12 x 16, fb paper. Enlarger time is about one hour, the rest about two hours.


Cron 35 asph., Tmax100 in Rodinal, paper Foma Variotone in Moersch Meritol.

Some FP4+ shots (dev'd in Ilfosol 3). Taken with Zeiss Ikon ZM and vc 50/1.5. Very happy with the tones and grain. Fast becoming my standard medium speed film and even preferring it to Delta 100.

This is an amazing print. I can see all the different shades of white but none of the blacks are blocked off.

Well-done, and thanks for telling us which paper and developer. I've seen gorgeous prints using Moersch developer.

Thanks, Will!
The Moersch stuff is amazing. If you take a developer like SE6 Blue, you´ll get, as the name suggests, cold tones and very deep blacks. Switching to SE30 Meritol, a warm tone developer, you´ll loose the deepest blacks, but a new dimension of mid tones and light differentiation is added. It´s a "WOW!"- experience. This only works with warm tone papers, no matter RC or FB.

My original lost some light differentiation in the digital translation; the young man´s left arm is much better in the original print....

Hi there,

One of my first prints on the new (to me) Lucky 90M-D enlarger.
Film was TMAX400 in low light with some flare.
Camera a Leica M3 with a collapsible summitar (no hood)
Paper: Forte Polywarmtone Plus RC 8x10 expired in 2007

It is also the first print I ever scanned. How do you guys scan prints usually? I used color and 24bit as if I went for BnW or Grayscale my warm tone (brown) was lost. The print itself looks a lot better still than the scan so I must be doing something wrong.

Also - amateur question but how do you get a full black border around your print? My negative carrier only lets a little of the film in other than what the shot covers so I only get these little black strips even when not using the easel.

Thanks,
Ben

Can't help you with the border question but I think a search will bring it up as it has been discussed at length before.

But what a fantastic image! Great first print. Looking forward to seeing some more

Cheers - John

Interesting - like the print. What exposure did you use in that pinhole camera of yours? Must be challenging photographing something in motion...

Thank you - I did 24bit - will try 48 later. Otherwise the same, use TIFF and I edited in PS.

I hold the print to my monitor while adjusting the sliders. Easier to get a matching look. Then once I match it up - I come to work and check the scan on my work PC and it looks totally different. So I think I prefer an actual print - looks the same all the time!

Will go with 48bit tonight - thanks for the tip!

It depands light conditions and film. With FP4 I am exposing 0.5-1 second in brigth sunny days and 4 seconds in overcast. It is difficult thing to shoot moving objects without a viewfinder and with long exposure as you said. But I am getting used to it.

Great shot. 5x7 doesn't do it justice! 8x10 at least

No problem even on 40x50cm:
