Great shot Erik! I bought some of that paper last week but was a bit surprised at 60 minute wash time tbh. Works well in Caffenol by the looks of this.

Thanks Tony I've seen different wash times for this paper I tend to give it a wash for 10mins and let it soak in a tray for a while and all seems to be well.

I really like this image. I've bought some of the paper to try,having seen your result. The image colour is very effective.

Think this shot was more luck than judgement Alex. I'm impressed with the paper but I will say look at flashing it first as this can make a huge difference to the image you obtain. This image was not flashed. Caffenol is a wonderful stain to give the overall sepia look.

Great little pinhole photo there Erik = especially if it hasn't been cropped as the composition is spot on!


Had a try myself once at using caffenol but found it a bit overpoweringly smelly in the darkroom, despite my love of coffee, but I think I might keep it for drinking. ;-)

Thanks Terry, this is an uncropped shot . My only adjustment was to make a mirror scan to show the image as it is rather than reversed.
It did have some luck involved as sighting a pinhole is very hit or miss but I'm really happy with the result.
