    Blue and green pre-flashing

    Does anyone on here ever specifically target the high or low contrast emulsions when they pre-flash paper? I would assume that would be possible by using a filter over the light source when they do the flashing.

    I'm just fishing for a little discussion about whether there's anything to be gained by doing that. I'd appreciate any comments by anyone who's given it any thought.

    Dave I don't believe there is any benefit in flashing with different grades. I flash many of my prints and tested this theory many years ago thinking of the potential benefits. However, when I compared the methods I detected no difference in the final results. I've also discussed this with Richard Ross of RH Designs and he came to the same conclusion when he carried out similar tests.

    Thanks, Les. That's exactly what I need to know.
