    I made my first proof sheet!

    I found an old frame glass, and brought it to the darkroom. Every since reading Halfhill's document on making a proper proof sheet (1991), I have been convinced I need to learn to make these.

    I had a newly developed film of efke 25, processed in DD-X 1+4 for 13 minutes, that I decided to test. The negatives came out quite contraty, but had much detail in many shots.

    I set it all up, and found that an exposure of 11 seconds gave me max black in min time. I developed in multigrade 1+9 for 60 seconds. Here's a scan of (what would fit on) the print (adjusted levels for black and white, the scanning wasn't perfect):

    I have a few prints from this set. I will post in different a different thread, for those interested.

    Good job.

    Nicely done! I remember my excitement when I made my first contact print after 15+ years. It's fun isn't it?

    The fourth one down on the left looks really great. That can be a tough shot to pull off.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    Until I get my darkroom set up I live vicariously through people like you. Good job!

    wow im looking into a solution for getting images for my new 4X5 as i dont have a scanner. the options were to shoot slide film and you have a mountable print but I could shoot negatives and do the contact print and scan that if required.

    Great job I guest its a first of many.
