I am a newbie trying to make 4x5 negatives for graphic arts purposes with rollei ato 2.1 previously known as genius print film.
I am using a speed graphic.
My trials today came out very low contrast and almost washed out of tone completely.
flood lights 24w (claimed to be equivalent to 120w)
Ilford pq to develop under safe light
Development for 5min
Jobo tank with CPE2 and reel
Used f5.6 and 6 sec with iso 25 as suggested by the light meter (tried a stop up and down too)
The original target consists of bold black text and lines
Can anyone see any obvious faults in what i am doing?
Thank you in advance.
