I sent a postcard of this print to Mike. I experimented with coloring at the postcard, which I cannot reproduced here. This is a straight print form the Washi film.


Washi film is coated on paper which gives additional structure to the photographs. It requires a lot of attention in the darkroom. It is 10...10 times less sensitive than normal film, around 2 DIN.

I mistakenly wrote that I used paper dev, that is not true: I used Atomal 49.


The film is best processed in a try because the paper gets soft when wet. It can be processed using red light and developed to the density you wish. The contrast is very hard. The negatives look like prints on grad 4 paper (negative of course). It may be rewarding to make first tests with printing paper because I guess the emulsion is similar. I still have materia for 2 or 3 negatives and I'll try working with diluted developer next.

Hi Uwe,
First time I see an image from a Washi film and like it very much. Subject well chosen and printed regarding the contrast.

Like Frank, never seen anything from a Washi film, I have heard and read about them, but they certainly look interesting

I got this film in a bunch of long stored film. I only bought this bunch because of this Washi film. I want to experiment with it.
This is Washi W which has a paper like emulsion. There is a Washi V available, which has a normal 100 ASA emulsion.
The paper is similar to rice paper.It remains stable when wet, but gets soft. I don't think that you can use a tank with a reel for developing. I used a tray. This was possible, because I made 3 parts from that film: 3 images for some kind of test strip, three images for experimenting with it and at least I still have some inches of it.
I think it could be possible to use a tank with something that was called Triplex band. Here

is one for 35 mm. I still have one of these. It was the only one available in the 70th in the GDR.

Thanks for posting this Uwe. Smile


I like the 'grain' in the picture, which could well be the texture in the paper and the contrast suits the overall look of the picture.


The link you gave, showing the processing tank and its processing reel, bring back memories as I used these on a summer camp in the USA, where I was teaching d+p many years ago now. Good memories. Smile

That's a very distinctive look and for the right subject matter (like here) could be very interesting. Very good, Uwe.

This looks very nice, Uwe. I've heard of the Washi film, but never used it. It looks very interesting.
