    Dust and contact printing frame.

    How do you get rid of dust from the glass of contact printing frame? I'm so new in LF and start to contact printing on 8x10 but dust seem to be my problem. When I print with the enlarger, i change from the glass negative carrier to glassless one.
    Thanks,

    I usually wipe mine with an anti-static cloth before using it, but I'm sure other people have other methods. The same goes for glass negative carriers...

    I clean my glass with plain water when I first go into the darkroom to print. Then just prior to placing the first negative in the frame, I use an anti-static cloth in one direction only. The negative is brushed in one direction with a Kostiner Anti-static brush.

    No or very little dust gets by.
