    to test the concept

    please consider swapping your print for mine

    i prefer unmounted, 8x10, titled and signed

    my image was originally captured on 5x8 FB low contrast Forte paper in a home made simple lens camera

    the lens is a magnifying glass of approximately 75mm focal length which gives an extreme wide angle of view on this format

    the exposure was 45 seconds @ f64 on FB paper rated at ISO 3

    this print is on the same low contrast FB paper

    g'day Dark, thnx for your interest

    yes, the print was made by contact through a black paper mask to give a white border

    the neg was firstly oiled by rubbing baby oil into the back of the paper, this daramatically shortens exposure time, increases contrast and in some cases renders more of the paper texture

    interesting....does the oil seep through to the other side and get onto the print?

    hi Dark

    no surprisingly

    at first i was really careful to protect the emulsion side, and though i used quite a lot of oil the neg still looked patchy, after several tries i've found a little oil rubbed in with a cotton pad, or something like an ink dabber as would be used in print making, and then left alone for perhaps an hour, the oil will spread through the paper fibres and even itself out, any excess can be easily wiped away

    the negs are later stored in a plastic A4 sleeve and some that are now 2 years old don't seem to have dried out but they also don't seem to be particularly oily

    i think i jagged a good technique
