Xray film for enlarged negatives
Hello all. I am attempting to use what seems to me to be repackaged x ray film for the production of albumen prints...with occasional success, but more often not. This film is sold as "continuous tone duplicating film". It is a positive to positive process. In other words, when a negative image is projected on to the film it results also in a negative.
If anyone here has used this film for this purpose I would really be interested in your experience. Specifically, I am wondering if using x ray film to enlarge an original negative already designed for albumen is a better idea then trying to manipulate the x ray film during exposure and development. Thank you.
Take a look and I'll let you be the judge
This is a cool site.
