    This technique sounds rather mystical and unrepeatable to be taken seriously.

    Darkroom printing is an art and artists can be quirky. Obviously she believes in her technique and that's all it matters. If I could print as well she does, I'd be breathing on it too

    I didn't claim it worked or that i have tried, someone asked what was that about and i gave an answer.

    We did, and sometimes still do keep warmer straight developer handy to place on small areas to punch up the image.

    So serious or not, lots of things have been going on in the days of my 63 years of darkroom work and makes one wonder.

    Ann,

    My apologies. The remark directed at the technique in the video rather than at yourself.

    I first used localized warming in the developer tray about 30 years ago. But then, that was in a newspaper darkroom, and "fine gradation" and "archival quality" weren't exactly high on the priority list.

    Well yes, but darkroom printing is also a process that conforms to certain principles, which is why I'm skeptical of the "mystical" approach.

    Sure, Tom, that is true and I am sure she sticks to that. But, a little pixie dust doesn't hurt sometimes

    this is interesting...does it work for all developers, and how warm is the developer used to "punch up the image". Do you do it before or after fixing?

    hm, warm is about 80 degree, and before, while the print is still in the developer. It would work with fiber, but never tried it with RC, but who knows.

    some folks with use their hand, or fingers to apply just straight developer thinking that body heat would do the trick
