taking out the big ol 16x20, placing it on the (easel?) table... And then loading the negative carrier, framing, and focusing all under red filter from enlarger? ugh. Please, paper out last, focus on top of old scrap, focus with white light. I also like the fact that he makes a big ol test strip for pretty much no reason as the finished print had no other tones except black. Then he paints a smiley face... haha thats art for you.
Hes basically doing selective development by painting on developer, rinsing it, and then (stop maybe or not) fixing it. Ive had lots of my students play with painting with chemicals, mostly with fixer though, they make for pretty fun photograms or whenever a sheet is exposed accidentally.
