Four different copies from one negative
I while ago I made some portraits for a friend of mine, of two of her beautiful Shetland Sheepdog ladies. These two beauties are 12 and 13 years old, isn’t that fantastic? The elder one, Lillan, (first image) is a bit grey in her face, but on Gabbie (second image) there is no way you can see that she is 12 years old.
Since I didn’t know what my friend would prefer, I made four different type of copies for her. One black and white on warm tone paper, one black and white on the new Cooltone paper from Ilford (absolutely gorgeous!!!), one regular lith copy, and one black and white on Cooltone that I bleached back and redeveloped in Lith developer.
And since they are so different, I want to show them all to you.
It’s so good to have an analogue darkroom!
All images is scanned from the original wet darkroom print, then merged together in Photoshop to one image. No other adjustments are made.
