gum negatives redux
I'm getting much better results using my QTR inkjet palladium negatives for pure gum purposes. Detail is much sharper with these contrasty negs and I'm getting a pretty full range of tones.
Exposures with 1:1 gum/dichromate ratio (pot di) are 6-7 min for highlights, 2 1/2 min for shadows and mids somewhere btw those.
This is for exposure in full blazing blue sky sun, Southern California style.
Still adjusting and experimenting, but happy to have a printing day that is not frustrating ;-)...of course, it's not over yet.
