    Brown Prints?

    Im fairly new at printing and ive noticed that my last couple prints are looking sort of sepia toned. Is this caused by overdevelopment, underdevelopment or underfixing? Thanks.

    Often under-development will warm the print color. Under-development can come from several sources. Too dilute, too old, exhausted or not enough time.

    Under-fixing will also cause discoloration, but usually not evenly across the print.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    If your borders are taking on a tone, your fixer is shot. It's pretty hard to make dramatic changes in print tone with changes in development time.
