Made a couple of prints this week from last week’s negatives. This Arista Ortho Litho 3.0 makes nice prints with the lith process but it’s harder to print on normal paper. Prints tend to come out flat
This lith print is awesome.
This regular print is flat.
Another nice one.
Some views from a rainy day above the 900 block of South Street.
This negative was fogged and ugly. But I printed it anyway 🙂
It looks a little better in person.
This negative was fine.
These large prints were fun to make. They’re 10×12.5.
This is a little 4×5 contact print.
I made a book.
I’ve never seen Dell’s II open. I imagine it’s good.
I’m over half way through my first box of Arista Ortho Litho and I only have a few decent negatives to work with. In other words, a lot of mistakes were made. Here’s a brief run down.
- Used the wrong safelight
- Put the film in the film holder backwards
- Which meant it went into the development tank backwards
- Used too little developer
- Forgot which direction to move the fstop to let in more light
- Used exhausted fixer
- Forgot about bellows extension compensation
So now I know.
