Selection of a suitable negative


Back to Main Menu

When selecting a negative for initial lith printing, I feel that a negative which you are very familiar with should be used, do you have notes on how long to expose for, head elevation and aperture of the lens? If so then any calculations that need to be made are greatly simplified. The first print I chose was called Forte:

I chose the print because of the strong lines and 3 definite tone zones of white(ish), mid grey, and black. This would give me an idea of how the lith developer would react.

My second selection was more ambitious, I chose a shot of a Osteospermum flower which had lots of light values and very delicate tones on the petals.

These prints are here to give an idea of what the photographs looked like under normal developing conditions.
