    I bet Atget never dodged or burned a contact print.

    I like to make contact prints from paper negatives in 116 and 122 size. Lately I've been using the 122 size more ( 3.25 x 5.5 inches ) but about a month ago I was looking through a "card deck" of the 116 size contact prints and I had forgotten how much I like them. Seeing this post here on APUG got me moving and I pulled them out again. I found one negative that I never contacted and another that might look good with some "faux pop" experiments... so thanks.. this got me going at that size again! I might even make one today!

    Dodging and burning on small contact prints is no different that dodging and burning on 8x10s. The on;y difference is that smaller tools are used whencontact printing the smaller negatives.

    Not sure about Atget, but that hack printer E. Weston surely did

    hi clive

    you are probably right ... neither did fox talbot
    and i agree with you to a certain extant ... some contact prints are meant to be un-manipulated, and some are not ...

    its kind of like making paper negatives.
    some people refuse to scan them and only contact print them
    because they are almost a holy-images or something sacred ..

    i scan paper negatives too.

    Michael,
    thank you. I truly appreciate that. Paula and you have both had a significant influence on my work.

    That's exactly right. I've attached a couple examples of "print instruction sheets" for two of my 6x7cm contact prints and oftentimes they are much more involved than these. I've found that taping or otherwise hanging a straight print in front of you while you work, as a sort of "map", can also help.

    Jan Pierzak (wherever he's been recently) does some fantastic 6x6cm contact prints on Pt/pd. Love them! He has about 4" mat around them.

    As for dodge and burn, get a piece of transparency and a marker. Works great.

    Yes. I think so. I found some vernacular photographs in Seattle at Watson Kennedy. They look like a photo hobbyist that printed without an enlarger. They have a magical quality to them. I still have to mount, frame and display the photos.
