PAPER NEGATIVES - THE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESS


A very short note about an older experiment with paper negatives and my first results ...

Some time ago I used a  Falz & Werner 18x24 ( Leipzig, 1899 ) wood camera with a  Voigtlander Cooke triple anastigmat 280mm for some Paper Negative Experiments. I shot artifacts ( seashells and vintage cameras ) and some portraits. 


I used available, continuous and strobe lighting. The portraits are the less successful trials ... especially the use of strobe lights in combination with a barrel lens ...  but the subject is very promising and I would continue ... 

The correct exposure is a critical issue ... I assumed 2-6 ISO as the basic sensitivity of the paper. The resolution of the scanned images is amazing!!!
