LPD and shelf life?
A question on LPD paper developer as I am getting ready to mix my first batch. I am liking what I read regarding changing image tone with dilution. I had previously used Zonal pro HQ when I wanted a warmtone on neutral cold paper and liked it very much. Then suddenly like so much in this area of photography it disappeared. I tried the supposedly equivalent Arista HQ warmtone developer from freestyle and did not like it at all(perhaps i should change the dilution). So LPD is next for testing as an alternative. When they say is has long try life they don't mean Ansco 130 try life do they or are they referring to strong activity throughout one printing session??? I have been using Ansco for over two months in my slot processor and quite happy with it so interested how LPD would fit into my workflow.
Any experiences shared are greatly appreciated.
