    Interpositives vs Digital negs for Alt process

    I have been scouring the internet for 'OHP Digital Neg' advice for my epson r2400 (pooling, banding problems) to no avail.

    How expensive are interpositives, and where can I get them done in the UK? It's just that this digital experimentation is getting expensive.

    Best to ask this over at http://www.hybridphoto.com since they have done away with a space here for such questions.

    Discussion of digital negs was formerly consigned to the "Gray Area." Now it should take place at HybridPhoto.com, dedicated to digital/traditional hybrid processes. I'll leave this thread open, as long as it is about how to make or where to get traditional interpositives.

    In answer to the question--you could make them yourself using ortho film or a relatively neutral film like TMX in your own darkroom. Do a search on "enlarged negatives," and you should turn up a few threads on the process. Here are a couple of them--

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum55/3974-enlarged-negatives-contact-printing.html

    Another method, if you have access to a large camera, is to make a small print and dupe it with the larger camera.

    Also, take a look at www.dr5.com. They can make enlarged negatives on film directly using a reversal process, so no interpositive is required.

    If you have an enlarger, enlarged negs by direct reversal are a high-quality option, too. I use Liam Lawless' process. You may get every bit as good negs as with interpositives, but this process also needs a certain amount of experience. If you are interested in details, tell me.
