    Easel discovery

    A phototeck showed me this earlier this year and it definately makes a difference to the base fog as for focus simply expose a sheet of paper for 1 or 2 minutes develop and fix ,dry etc for the size prints you are using eg 10x8
    11x14 to focus turn the paper over and focus on the white side when final exposure is ready turn the paper over and the black side up it works and is what i call a 10% er

    Hi,

    I've had this very same problem many years ago. I immediately painted my easel flat black, and exposure times increased !

    And yes, this paper backlighting makes for less sharp prints, because the reflected light is more diffuse than the direct enlarger light. Even if the difference was small, I could see it. (I still had young eyes back then.) It's another factor to eliminate if you want to produce topnotch prints.
