Betchworth Tower

Calotype negative

 

Greenlaws process

 

Chemistry as before

 

Canson marker paper

 

The "Perfection" Sharman D Neill (Half plate)

 

10 second exposure in bright sunshine

 

Squires & CO CDV Petval lens @F4 ish

 

Meter readings

 

Ev @ iso 100

Ev 15 reflective reading

 

Exposed at Ev15.

 

No image as it came out of the dark slide.

 

Developed gradually appearing with some strength after 2minutes.

 

Total 12 mins in the gallic acid.

 

Blue sky and a Calotype are tricky arnt they ! I suppose if I was a 19C Calotypist then the black Gouache would be making an appearance.

 

The finger print occured during Immersion during developing.I have managed to do this a few times. The Canson marker insists on floating ! Can I wet the negative before developing ? I may revert to floating now that I am more confident or have another go at brushing the developer on. Any tips would be appreciated.
