Part of a 16 x12 print on fibre based paper I believe the developer was normal Ilford type as I used college chemicals ...as soon as it was put into developer it went off straight away which I thought was unusual for this type of paper as normally it takes me longer developing times .....negative was a 5x4 sheet film Ilford 25 ..camera a Wista 5x4 field any ideas what went wrong I left it in the developer for about5 secs before pulling it out and stopping it

I assume the negative looks OK, so can discount that. It seems to me that the print was grossly over exposed, and that if you hadn't pulled it, you would have ended up with a black sheet. Is there a white light focusing setting on the enlarger which didn't get reset, or did you fail to stop the lens down after focusing; or both?

Not trying to be funny or "take the mick" insaying this but it has a certain "Je ne sais quoi" quality about it which suits the still life subject.


I am just not a still life fan but if it had come out technically perfect I am not sure it would have grabbed my attention as much.


Not stopping down after focussing is something I have done a number of times and it sounds as if this may have happened here. I have also forgotten to drop the white light lever as well but it has never had quite as drastic effect as this.


With a Novo slot processor that I use there is no rescue. You find out your mistake as the almost solid black print is pulled out!

Was yours perhaps the second exposure on the same sheet?

Unless the negative is grossly thin then I also tend to think that you very much over exposed the print,or is there any chance of the print developer being too strong,?,perhaps an accidental doubling of the dilution,like 200 dev to 1000 water, I have seen that happen and produce similer results,Richard
