    I have a few packs of film paper that I am wanting to do some different types of printing with. I have been doing some Lumen printing but now I am wanting to do a few pinhole shots on paper and I would like to know if I can do a reversal process with it?

    From what I have read in other places and if I am not mistaken, I can develop the print, wash and flash the paper and then fix it as a positive. Could anyone correct me if I am wrong?

    Ok, so I missed a step. I will have to bleach after the wash and do a second wash and then flash the print to get a positive reversal.

    hey joel

    have you poked around to see the kind of process goes on with
    photo booths ? it seems to be a bit more complicated than what you plan on doing ...

    i guess you have no desire to make a contact print - that is an easy way to get a positive :wink:

    have fun !

    John, I was going to use a piece of B&W photo paper to do pin hole and then develop it and hopefully turn it into a positive by magic or alchemy or what ever.
