Interesting video showing making a print; your opinion of his technique?

Recommended Posts

I'm still investigating darkroom printing and have been surfing YT videos. I found this one and was intrigued that he circumvented many of the steps that folks use (such as separate tongs for each chemical and having only one safelight and making sure that the safelight is well away from the paper.

I didn't spot any more than that but he sure made it seem like it was very routine without a lot o fuss.

I'm just trying to get my bearings, gain information and know as much as I can before diving in so I'll ask; what is your take on this guy's video?

      Hi Everyone
      I've just got a film back from a develop and scan, with apparent processing problems - I wondered if those with more experience might tell me what I'm looking at - are these drying marks on the negative, or a (Noritsu) scanner problem?
      If the problem is that the negs haven't been dried correctly and marks are showing during the scan, is there any way of getting the marks off the negatives ?
      Thanks in advance for your comments
      (for info camera is 11f Red Dial in great condition, 3,5 Red Scale Elmar the same, Fison hood in place, film is XP2 C41 processed)

      We made a short Video of making prints in my old B&W Darkroom.  The Video is here.

      I'm having a terrible time printings some portraits for a gallery show.  I'm using Ilford Galerie Prestige Gold Fibre Silk paper, 13x19, and printing with an Epson 1430 Artisan printer.  I'm printing through LightRoom, using the Ilford profile for that paper.  I've turned off color correction for the printer itself and am using the color settings in LR.   I'm using Relative Intent.  Here is an example of my digital file:
      Here is an iPhone photo of the actual print:
      See the greenish shadow on her jaw?  All of my portraits are printing with these green shadows somewhere.  I've tried adjusting the color balance of the whole photo which makes it too pink and I've tried adjusting the toning of just the shadows which doesn't seem to help.
      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  This is driving me crazy!!

      Ladies and gents,
      I searched the net since quite some time for experiences and examples that demonstrate the performance and quality of Leica M10 or SL files for large printing. With large prints I mean sizes up to 150cm (60") on the long side. There are lots of comparisons and reviews between cameras of different makes, e.g. between SL and Hasselblad X1D, but they concentrate mainly on usability or spec-sheet resolution etc. They don't say anything about the final product, which is the print. Print quality from files of a particular camera is nearly never mentioned or discussed. I would like to ask the community here for experiences with printing large from Leica full frame cameras such as M10, SL, 240 or even M9. I know, many of the answers will state "quality is subjective", "depends on viewing distance" or "depends on expectation", etc. But maybe this thread is able to shed some more light on people's experience. I'm sure there must be some prints out there of such sizes. Did you send your SL or M images for example to services such as whitewall.com to produce such large prints? Do you print yourself? How do M or SL files hold up in a 40x60" print? Are they totally inferior to a print from digital medium format... ?
      Cheers, Peter
