Fontys Academy of Arts, Tilburg (with some heavy handed PP to emulate something I tried in my chemical darkroom years ago but never succeeded really well)


Sony A850 + Helios 35/2.8 (M42)
What was the darkroom effect you were trying to emulate? I also had a darkroom from 1959 until about 10 or 12 tears ago when we moved.

Thanks Dave, it's what I tried on Agfa Bromopaper (forgot how it was exactly called) but at least a slightly warm tone by itself and then a relatively dark and heavy rendering but without everything going to black. This particular Agfa paper responded well to that even though none of my results looked really good. As a last step I added some grain to this digital capture to make it more look like a FP4 type negative.

EDIT: just remembered, the particular paper was called "AGFA Brovira" paper

Yes, I used Brovira from time to time, as I recall a bromide paper with a "blue black" look.
