I have spent days' worth of darkroom time trying to get the right tone color on 2 images that go together. I started out with Ilford WT paper in WT developer>sepia>gold, then switched out to Foma paper and Fotospeed lith developer, then back to WT developer>sepia>gold with Foma paper. I just cannot get 2 prints of the same tone that work for me.
So I decided to save some samples of what I do have that is close, put the negative file away, and move on to other work. I'll come back to this someday.
I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening!
