Lith prints with that desirable pinkish hue
Finally I got the pinkish hue I have strived for on my lith prints. They just had to be in the developer for a much longer time than earlier prints. And I’m really really proud of them both!
I’m so sorry for the digital capture I had to do, but the prints are too large for my scanner. And they are so much more beautiful than I’m able to show you here! I hope you can see it anyhow.
Both of them are originating from negatives made with my gorgeous little Zero Image 612F, and printed on Fomatone MGFB 131, and developed it Lith developer LD20.
I wish all of you a wonderful weekend!
Underbar känsla i båda bilderna.
Favoriten blir nog ändå andra bilden.
Önskar dig detsamma – en skön helg!
Tack Malin! Jag håller med dig, den passar lite bättre ihop med känslan som lith processen ger. Nu ska de upp på väggen!! 🙂
Härligt att dom ska upp på väggen. 🙂
Wonderful Marie! I love it when my continuing to find a way to make what I want to have happen, happens! Congratulations! I am particularly fond of the second image…
Oh…I forgot to add. I don’t know how large these prints are, but I’ve found that with my larger prints, say 11 x 14, I can scan each end of the print and then photomerge in Photoshop so that I can post.
Thanks a lot Amy! They are 30×40 cm. That was a really good idea, I shall try to do that, I’m not at all happy with the digital capture, most of the “glow” in the prints disappeared for me.
Thank you so much! 🙂
Marie, what you are doing is just so wonderful!!! – I have some prints of mine in lith too (…done some 10 years ago…) and yes, nothing digital have that same feeling…
Thank you for remind me… (…smiling…)
Thank you very much Kari! Nothing is ever too late you know…. 😉
So true!! (…smiling again…)
Beautiful print Marie. Like a dream I want to dream.
Oh, thank you ever so much for your kind words Mike! I’m happy you like them! 🙂
Love the second
Thank you very much!
These are just spectacular. They demonstrate beautifully why we should keep shooting on film.
Thank you very much! Yes, there would not be the same feeling if it was digital. I’m so happy film and darkroom material is still around, and I hope the interest will grow, as an artistic expression.
I love the nostalgic look of your pictures. It recalls my youth, film photography and a lot of memory. Thank you.
Your kind comment makes me very happy, thank YOU!! 🙂
They ARE beautiful!!! Congratulations, Marie.
Thank you very much Naomi! Most appreciated!
Ahsh, wow! They’re truly stunning and I’m glad you got hte desired effects, it was well worth it!
…and once again I find myself wishing you were my lab-teacher back in uni…
Ohh, you are so kind…. Thank you very very much!
An inspiration and a joy as always Marie, a haunting beauty in your work that I love to become immersed in. Have a great weekend. Best regards, james
Thank you very much James, for your always so kind comment. I’m very glad you like my work.
Have a fantastic weekend you too!
Very cool stuff. I recently picked up some ‘Arista Litho Film 2.0’ and ‘Arista Litho Developer Powder.’ Now I just have to figure out how to use it… : )
