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!

Enjoy 🙂

  1. this is great! I am getting ready to do my own home darkroom printing so it’s very timely for me! Interesting to see the different results on different papers!

    • Hej Mikael, och TACK!! Kul att du gillar dem 🙂 Filmen jag använt är Ilford HP5+ (120film), framkallad i Kodak Tmax framkallare 1:4, och sen är de kopierade på olika papper i olika processer, men de två “vanliga” svartvita kopiorna är framkallade i Ilford Multigrade (tror jag den heter..)
