Show me your latest darkroom prints



Size: 11x14 inches
Paper: Adox MCP RC
Developer: Ilford PQ
Film: Konica Centuria 200
Notes: Two exposures with different Magenta filter settings. That is not a frame, that's an old contact frame to hold the print flat when I take a picture of it.

Your turn!

Mike, that is seriously nice.
I bet the real print has more details in the shadow areas than the scan suggests.

Thank you! It does look better on paper. It was taken on a rainy/cloudy day, so the contrast was actually manageable (just a litle more than than 5 zones), which is somewhat rare in Delhi...

Nice thread and stuff guys! I am wondering how to show you some of my recently printed stuff since I don't have a digital camera around. I have printed more than 70 works since January as I am getting ready for a personal exhibition in a month. I'll try to figure out something, I would love to contribute in this thread

Regards,

Boris

I use a simple HP office scanner (at work ), since my experiments with digicam photos of prints never produced decent results (too contrasty, too little details), but having said that, the photos on this thread (including the iPhone one ) are very good...

Boris,
Borrow a digital camera, I think one of your neighbors would have one.

I eagerly await your contributions.

I give it a try with the ipad then and see how it's going to look like. Hard to scan them in the office (50x60 and 60x70)...

Regards,

Boris

Thanks! Copper toner is nice, since the longer you leave it in the more sepia it becomes so no need to buy two toners. I'll be trying a blue toner soon as I think it's more my style.

Delta 400 on Ilford Multi. The actual print has a much greater dynamic range with brighter whites.

As is the image already shown incredible range and yet it remained crisp.

Lovely set!
It's no longer common to do portraits as FB prints.

Size: 8x10 inches
Paper: Adox MCP
Film: TMAX 400
Note: I'm experimenting with the high-key look. The magenta dial on my color enlarger was cranked out to max for this one. I know, I should have done Lith to test the paper, but still, it has its charms.

Just some, I like RC better.
I haven't tried the MCC though, I heard it's easier to flatten than Ilford FB papers.

Say what?
I'd like to see your enlarger setup.
Printing this big is impressive (to me).

Boris,
I was waiting for your contribution to this thread.
And I wasn't disappointed, that's a very interesting and carefully composed photo.
It works in a lot of ways.
Good job.

That portrait of your friend who just passed away is a very, very touching tribute.

Inspiring in more than one ways.

that portrait is from december, during my last visit at him. he was suffering then, the signs of cancer were visible on him, but he still had not given up. when he became tired i asked for the picture and got the m6 from the car. the winter sun in his room, late afternoon..... i left without knowing..... precious memory. the best photography can deliver.

Patrick,

It may be an old image, but it's very, very well printed.

I'm amazed how many good printers we have here in this forum.

I hadn't realized about this thread, but I had enjoyed it a lot. I want to contribute with three prints I had photographed with an iPad while still drying. Shadows and colour cast are my fault.

I forgot to add the paper details, Fomatone MG Classic 131 developed with Moersch ECO.

Cheers

Those are some amazing monochromatic colors without deliberate toning.
