Here is my first upload to the print exchange forum :-)


The picture was taken on a recent purchase of a 6 x 4.5 MF camera, the Fuji GA645Zi, with a roll of 120 Rollei 200 film, developed in Rodinal at 1 + 25, with minus 20% of the time recommended on the bottle.


Having recently got back into the darkroom after a lengthy break, film and developer tests have shown me that in the past I overdeveloped all of my films (I just followed all the recommended times) but now having done an awful lot of reading in the meantime, I now know why most of my prints were so hard to print!


They now (generally) come up lovely and very easily on grade 2 papers.


The print of the horse was printed on Jessops Lustre RC paper, a lovely mattish paper with only a very slight sheen = which having looked today, has a Best Before date of October 1998!! It was given to me by someone in a batch of boxes of paper, when I purchased a Nova print washer off of them. Itís still holding itís own in my opinion!


The print was developed in a Nova slot unit, first in Ilford Multigrade at 1 + 9; then 30 seconds in an acid stop bath and then for a couple of minutes in Ilford fixer at 1 + 9. It was then washed for a few minutes in warm water and then left to start to dry by sticking to the side of the bath, followed by being put into a Paterson print drying rack.


I welcome all comments. :-)

As ever with these prints there is more detail in the ears and mane area than shown on the scan. Also the print look lighter overall.


Good shot of the horse 'laughing' and one that I am happy to have.


Thanks Terry

Now you can't say you've never looked a gift horse in the mouth and a dark one too...

I too have a love for Jessops Lustre. Not much of it coming up on e-bay now as it must be almost used up


It does age well.
