today i exposed a whole bunch of paper in a box camera, and the results were pretty fun.
it seems that 15 second exposures sometimes more, sometimes less worked OK for my
aged bottled emulsion. i used a stack of paper that was given to me 10-15 years ago
not sure what kind it is, but its thin, not thick/rag paper. i have been doing cyanotypes on this paper
and hand coated lumen prints so it seems to work ok ...
the paper was coated 3 times and cut down to 4x5 sheets.
i loaded up 3 riteway holders and did random test-stuff
processed in a 2 bath a 130 .. one strong one no so strong, going between the two.
then i just inverted them ... eventually i will probably print them in the DR but i am too tired and lazy these days ...
i have a handful of septums loaded in my cyclone that i will expose probably in the next hour or so while the blue light
is still blue ... i figure it will be 2 maybe 3x the exposure time as before ... as long as i am not doing portraits i will be OK ...
