    Hmm, that's too bad... is it a case of just not being able to see it against the black ground?

    I hope the next trial turns out better, keep us posted!

    Hey John,

    It looks good!; the one with the trees, right?

    I'm really interested in the conditions for getting a bright deposit without resorting to mercuric chloride or cyanide fix; it seems that physical development is the key and Rockaloid's kit likely has some hypo added to the developer.
    If you are the big tree, we are the small axe

    I think keith is misunderstanding something here.
    OP doesnt want to print thin negs. He wants to make thin negs in hope that they will IN THEMSELVES mimick the look of ambrotypes, when theyre put on a black background, am i right?
    In this case i think you ought to try, i've had regular negs look that way.

    hi nicholai

    you are exactly right !
    i didn't want to make under exposed film
    that when i turn sideways it looks like a reversed image

    i posted this thread because i originally was trying to learn if it was
    possible to use conventional materials to make an ambrotype / tintype sort of image.
    now ... i realize it is possible, but it requires special chemistry that is proprietary
    and currently sold by rockland colloid with their tintype kit.

    throughout the beginning of the 1900s there were street photographers and itinerant tintypists
    who used silver gelatin emulsion and this same sort of chemistry to make on-the-spot photos ...
    much like this guy does ( in india ) http://articles.latimes.com/2009/sep...india-lowtech2
    ... but its a single step instead of making a contact print ...

    ( i'd make wet plates in a heartbeat but in a former life i used collodion quite a bit and would rather not be exposed to it ... )
