Hi,
I've printed several copies of the same subject taken at various apertures (Helligkeit or H as called by Rodenstock) of my Imagon to study its characteristics.
Unfortunately I've only registered the data on my App Photo Tool Pro. It would have been better I included a cartel with the data in every shot (more simple and "analogic"). Now I don't know the correlation from data and the negatives (I can only imagine from the softness) 😬😩.
Anyway here are the photok I took with my only digital camera, my iPhone.
One of them is a strip test done in an exponential way following the excellent book "Way beyond monochrome" by Lambrecht and Woodhouse and usin an App I suggest you (Darkroom), that gives the values of the strip in exponential manner (I'chosen increments of 1/3 EV).
Any comment, question or suggestion?
Thanks,
Antonio

Benjamin, when I started printing not to long ago, I got the Book "Way Beyond Monochrome" it had a section on presentation including matting and mounting photos, I also knew about fiber paper and keeping it flat, so I used 2cm on the sides and top. I also learned about non-permanent mounting, and leaving a 5mm edge of the print paper showing and 1.5cm at the bottom to sign the print. Now that I've matted and framed one using a "T" mount of self adhesive linen tape, only on the top of the print to tape the print to the back board I will reduce the sides to 1.5cm, it should still keep the print flat.

I'm really bad at getting consistent borders, especially when I want to get the entire composition of the film, but at the same time want to 'fill the paper'.

Exellent work above - always adored hand-coloring.

You guys made me horny as well and yesterday I decided to go back to the darkroom. Running Moersch chemistry with me own recipe mixtures and used Foma Fomatone 132 MG baryta paper for the first time and really impressed with it so far.

Some work drying using a new-to-me taping method (shot with a crappy digital p&s):

Well ... after a 8 month break I gave it a try again in my make-shift darkroom / bathroom combination. Initially, the biggest problem was focusing onto the grain using a grain magnifier. It took me about one hour to "see" the grain (and only after the trick to make a scratch with some sharp knife into the emulsion of a black frame and use that scratch as focusing aid came to my mind again). Next problem was light, I had only one (portable) safe-light that I change between a place closer to the enlarger and closer to the trays to control developing. While developing the first print the safety-light slipped and the bulb broke, no spare at home....

Will, thank you for your comment, considering the signature is at the end of the process and easy enough to ruin a print if you are to slow or fast doing it.

Thanks Margus! It's been about 15 years or so since I painted prints. Surprisingly, the bottle of PM solution (linseed oil and solvent?) was intact! I will have to give your tape drying/flattening method as well. Multigrade fiber prints seem to take months to self flatten!

Michael, thank you. There is a lot to be said about framed prints hanging on the wall compared to viewing on a monitor.

Hi Maddoc,
I don't know the reason for the bright strip. Try to print it again, if the negative doesn't have any gray-black strip. May be the problem disappear without finding the cause. Who cares. The image is very good and original. Next time I'll be in a bus here in Italy I'll shot a similar one (with your permission&#128521.
Thanks
Antonio

I usually got those when the ambient temperature is cold (and therefore developer too) and then I hesitated when I put the paper in the tray, so it is unevenly submerged for a short period of time.

Print it again.

Margus, tell us more about your taping the prints down to dry, the method, how did it work out, and would you recommend it?

I printed those yesterday on Adox MCP. I'm back in the darkroom since my negative scanner stopped working properly a couple of weeks ago. Dont have the money to buy a new one, and wet printing is so much fun!

This thread always puts a smile on my face, simply one of the best on any photo forum there is, so much love and passion and really, *really* nice work. Please, please keep this up, it's nice to feel unique in a world of digital snapshots, but I think in this case, it feels even better to be in wonderful company.

I am currently working on a set of small prints to sell from my office / dry side print finishing area, once I get a few done, I will snap a couple iPhone pics and post them. For now, I will attach a photo of the print finishing / marketing space, another "feel good" place in my work to make fine prints....

The nudes and the curved wall were taken by my dad in 1980. I recently found quite a few negatives from him and I am slowly proceeding throught them.

Telephones par tumulishoomaroom, sur Flickr

I tried hard to make the letters "Tele" appear but the negative is just too burnt in this corner, there's nothing to get out of it.

It's another of my dad's negatives from 1980(ish).

Old paper and old developer. Just getting the groove back after a decade out of the darkroom. Don't want to go to work, just stay home and print
