    Tonight I KRST'd despite the fact that my professor told me I wasn't at the "level" of markh and should therefore be using regular RC papers and regular chemisty, instead of my preferred Forte VC FB and Agfa III. I answered him later..... something something... if I don't challenge myself, how can I grow? I did a 1:9 and next time I'll pull it sooner.

    Thanks again for your help. It's a pure blast!

    classes are normally geared towards the lowest common denominator. Or in photography either the slowest, or at the pace the prof. sets for his class no matter how anyone particular person is doing. Selenium toning is easy. Which I bet you found out.

    come take my class!!

    Altho, i recommend RC for beginners i would rather they learn to print on fiber. The only reason for the RC is speed and washing concerns that are an issue in a gang darkroom (at least ours)

    Ann,

    Good idea. Perhaps some else should as well.

    Aggie is right on on this one - If I have one that I am looking for a particular shade of toning - I pull it before it gets there - The chemical takes at least 20 seconds to leach out of the emulsion and will continue to tone for that period of time till it is exhausted. Sometimes I am looking for a split tone look - I use a stronger solution - 1:6 maybe and I watch it close - The toner works on the shadows first. If you snatch the print just as the mid tones start to change - the mid tones will finish toning in the water bath leaving the highlights and lighter areas gray. With Forte - I get browna and gray dual tone prints that look good with some images.
    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...

    From toner to Hypo Cleaning Agent will arrest the toning at that point. 30 seconds or so is all that is needed and then into the final water rinse/bath.

    Querry: If KRST contains Hypo, is it necessary to Hypo after the toning? And what if one fails to do so?

    Typically one would tone after the second fixing bath and not fix after toning. However if you meant hypo clearing agent, then yes it is appropriate procedure to use hypo clearing agent following toning. This is then followed by the wash.
