Another rainy day, perfect for spending some time in my darkroom. I have decided to work on a few negatives at a time trying to get the best possible result.
I use a Kaiser enlarger with a 50mm rodenstock lens and a multigrade contrast head attached. I have earlier tried the concept of splitgrade printing, and I have decided to continue to follow that path.
The print I have been working with today is a Tmax 100 negative from 2015 developed in Rodinal - showing the view from Skagen old light house.
The first step was to make a test strip with filter 0 followed by filter 5 - both in increments of 5 seconds. I decided to settle for 10 seconds with both filters, followed by 10 seconds with filter 5 burning in the sky. It issuing to be interesting though if the final print will be too dark when it dries up.
Paper size was 18 x 24 cm. Lens was stopped down to f:8. Paper was Adox MCP 312 (Pearl RC paper), developed in Adox MCC developer.
