This picture was printed from an old neg, taken about 20 years ago. Taken on a college trip to Barcelona, (long before it became the popular and spruced up place it is now) on the second film SLR that I have ever owned, a Practica MTL5B. This is a very basic, noisy and clunky East German camera, whose optics were very sharp though! My first SLR was a Zenith E, which didn't last very long at all, with the shutter barely out living its year long guarantee.

The film was overexposed on Ilford FP4 and also overdeveloped, probably in Ilfosol S, so the negs are very dense and contrasty.

Although not obvious on the monitor, the final print was done on Ilford FB MG Matt (my new favourite paper surface) and the chemicals used were all also Ilford; Multigrade developer, stop and fix.

A good wash and pegged up to dry overnight and then another night under a heavy book gave me a flat print that I was very happy with.

It is also very interesting to compare it with the print made 20 years previously. (This is to be the start of a new post on the forum btw.)
