    The Light Farm and Denise Ross's Emulsion Diary websites

    Denise Ross, a very talented photographer out here in Oregon is putting together a web site to share information and promote making silver gelatin emulsions. She plans to have the site ready for use right after New Years Day.

    She made a post on APUG's sister-site, hybridphoto.com, today and stated that she:

    "would love for the folks who are making emulsions to think about becoming a Contributing Editor to the Light Farm. Here's a heads-up to the page that talks about that: http://www.thelightfarm.com/howtopar...e/maptopic.htm

    "Please note that it isn't linked to any other page right now. If you haven't been following the progress on launching this beast, here is the UnderConstruction page:
    http://dwrphotos.com/blog/Section14/thelightfarm.htm "

    I've been to Denise's studio and seen the silver emulsions that she makes and the beautiful prints from these emulsions. I'm sure her site will be quite interesting. I plan to participate and I hope others that are interested in making silver emulsions will come and check out her site and participate as well.

    Here's some pages that Denise has on her personal web site on emulsion making - http://dwrphotos.com/blog/EmulsionResearch.htm that are really interesting. I'm sure her www.thelightfarm.com will be just as good.

    Thanks Kirk,
    The link is appreciated.

    Denise has a very nice site with some excellent information for emulsion makers.

    It seems that the site you referred to only talk about enlarging emulsion, not negative-speed film emulsion...

    I don't know if the author of that site sees this thread, but here's my comment.

    Pepper fog can be caused by poor choice of gelatin. Try different gelatins. Also, uniformity of mixing at the precipitation is the key. Pepper fog is a strange thing and one stock of gelatin I use never caused pepper fog, ever, while another stock of gelatin is very much more problematic.

    Coating defects on papers can be caused by inadequate mixing when adding hardener, or can be caused by ineffective surfactant. The surfactant used in Photoflo (octylphenol ethoxylate) is not very effective for coating purpose, unless you coat slowly, or make multiple strokes (like when using brush). If you have no access to a better surfactant, try to wet the coating surface with plain dilute surfactant, immediately before coating the emulsion.

    Guessing from the step tablet images, the contrast of the emulsion is very low... maybe that's how you wanted it...

    Yes, this one is a newer updated site by Denise Ross, who put up the emulsion-making diary site that you mentioned in another new thread.

    Three threads merged.
