    Latent Image Stability

    I have two paper negatives still in holders that I shot about 4 weeks ago and will not have a chance to develop until next week sometime. Be it paper negatives or standard printing I've always developed right after exposing paper...

    What are the keeping properties of a latent image made on paper as opposed to film? Should I expect any fogging or degradation of my exposure in a months time?

    I had a couple of paper negatives (Ilford MGIV) that sat in the holders for several weeks before developing and they came out fine.

    Thanks, Reid. I'm going to give it a go tonight or tomorrow so I guess I'll find out for certain!

    i was wondering if you had any trouble ?
    i will be going overseas in a few months
    and i think i am just going to bring paper
    and emulsion, and metal ( and maybe glass ) and no film
    ( my ideas may change in a few months time )
    and while i probably could process everything at my
    inlaws again, i might not be able to ...
    did you have any trouble last year ?

    i guess i could easily load some paper into film holders, expose them and let them sit for a month
    to see for myself, but the weather will be HOT, then, and it is COLD now ... and you posted then in may 2012

    thanks !
    john
    im empty, good luck

    John,
    funny you should bring this up. I ran across the film holder containing these paper negatives on Saturday. I forgot all about them. So... I will be developing them tonight or tomorrow, almost a year after they were exposed! I'll let you know what happens. =)

    I would take paper-loaded pinhole cameras on vacation and not develop until I returned home -- a few weeks, in some cases. No problems that I could see, but that's a casual observation, not a scientific one.

    FINALLY developed the paper negatives I was wondering about. They were exposed on 4/29/2012 in Leechburg, PA - USA. 4x5, Ilford MGIV fiber, ISO 3, exposure was 4" @ f16. Toyo 45AII, Fujinon 150mm NW.

    So... exposed 4/29/12, developed 4/18/13. I'm just a beginner at making and printing paper negatives... So I will reserve judgement until I can make a print (which should be this weekend). In the meantime I have attached two images. A scan of the negative, I adjusted the levels until it looked like the paper negative to my eye. I then simply inverted that file and save it as a positive.
