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!

Enjoy!  🙂

    • 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! 🙂

  1. 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! 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.

  2. 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…
    Greetings!

  3. 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… : )
