View Full Version : Salted Paper Print

04-08-2006, 08:14 PM
Paper: Fabriano Artistico HP 90 lb. natural white
Salting solution: 2% sodium chloride
Sensitizer: 12% silver nitrate solution applied with 1.5" wide hake brush
Image: bank of Mississippi River near Ford dam, St. Paul, MN May, 2004
Print Exposure: full afternoon sun, time not recorded

This image is very high contrast. I tried to expose this one enough to get the highlights in the foreground under control, but I didn't quite bring it off. I need that UV penlight to do the burning in. Attached files http://f295.f295.org/uploads/saltforddamtree_6603.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/saltforddamtree_6603.jpg)

Damned good first (image) print, anyway!

You might try a blue LED light for burning in -- or just dodge everything else, like I do with cyanotypes when they need a little help...
