I would really want to have a 3 feet by 6 feet enlargement of some of my 12x20 negatives. </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
Hey jorge, I can manage an enlargement that size.
As I was thinking about my earlier posts, I realized that I forgot to mention that the same techiniques can be used to create a very nice paper negative and I do use the satin finish paper for that. When I am reprinting the large aerial b&w (so far) mosaics, I find that the paper neg is easier to store, provides is own diffusion filter and stores with less concern for damage. I use them for contact printing only.
My negative capabilities are. . .printing negatives up to 24 x 36, and able to enlarge from negatives 35mm to 12''x18" negatives. Is that big enough. However with the paper neg concept, I can make an enlarged negatives from slides or film using the enlarger. Actually I suppose I can even get continuous tone b&w negative film up to 42" wide as well so I am not be limited to paper negs when over sized.
Sorry now my lingo ignorance kicks in, what is ULF?
