I am trying to print a negative that has very deep shadows and very bright highlights. Printing conventionally using dodging and burning is very tricky, and not all together successful.
I would like to make a mask that effectively dodges the shadow areas, so the highlights can be printed down. There is enough detail highlight that making a mask with marker wonk work. I need to expose a sheet of film in contact with my neg to get the outcome I need.
This is where I have issues. I have the litho film and the registration equipment, what I seem to be missing is the know how. I have made interneg’s of varying density and tried to us them but he results are like solarization. Is the interneg too dense?
Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.
