    I was talking to a friend who used to do a lot of darkroom work, and he was telling me about a process where you enlarge on to paper and then start to develop then while developing go to the enlarger and flash with white light and you get a different result?? He didn't remember much about what he did or how he did, anyone have ideas??

    Thanks!

    It's also known as "NO! Crap!" process.... :D

    Yes, I think it's Solarization/Sabatier effect process. Did the end result look like part positive and part negative?

    Yes, it is solarization! Thanks!!
    and yes, it comes out somewhat positive, somewhat negative looking. I might give it a shot and see what it comes out like.
