    Split-grade with Slavich...

    I was split-grading some Ilford MG FB; it was going well. Then I decided to try my new Slavich and just kept on split-grading...

    Yes, the grade 3 stuff. It did end up looking pretty muddy.

    ...SIGH...

    How can you split-grade print with graded paper? I though it was useful only with multi-grade.

    That's what makes it funny! I hope you didn't blow too many sheets.

    Reminds me of the roll I've developed in Rodinal 0+100. I was pretty suprised with results until I remembered the dilution.

    About six... I was on a roll.

    I got some good prints from the Ilford MG at least. I'll give the Slavich another try tomorrow.

    Mike, that's hilarious! I'd imagine you'd get pretty weak results with filtered light on graded paper. I struggled pretty good once printing with Kentmere Bromide paper and I had and Ilford filter in the upper compartment of my condenser housing. It took me a couple of sheets, mixing new chemistry, cleaning my trays, checking the enlarging lens, and looking twice at the negative before I got it.
    Sometimes I just stop what I'm doing in the darkroom, look at myself and all of the goofy stuff around me and laugh out loud at what I'm doing. Us dark side people really are a little out there to be doing what we're doing.
    Anyway, let us know how the Slavich behaves!

    Maybe the Beers developers will work, but not the filters. I'm not talking about the kind you drink, I hope you know.

    Reminds me of the time I had the bright idea of a nice cold afternoon cocktail or five whilst printing. The results were not a pretty picture.

    Good suggestion.

    Yes, contrast control with Beer's is on a future To-Do list, but I won't get to it today. Today, I'll just do straight Slavich to get a feel for the paper.

    (However, being Friday, some beers just might develop later in the afternoon )
