Echinacea

I have always loved darkroom printing. Having seen @laurasulilly 's lovely handmade prints and her suggestion that she would like to see more, I decided to go through some of the prints I have. You may recognize some of these from their negative scans.

    great album. I'm trying to get good prints out of my darkroom. so far they're cloudy, flat and lifeless. yours are superb. Any tips? short exposure longer development? long exposure shorter development?

    @danbarry my biggest tip is to print on a fairly high contrast paper - most of these are a grade 4. I also tend to slightly overprocess my film, as I like a little more contrast. And thanks!

    @laurasulilly thanks for your comments and for uploading your own wonderful handmade prints. I am hoping to rebuild my darkroom so I can start printing again.
