    Today I conducted an extended printing session with the rig set up on my back porch, optically printing ten negatives I'd previously made during the last few months. While I made a few mistakes, wasting several sheets of paper, I'm pleased with the outcome. I switched to using grade 2 contrast filtration over the lens, the prints being exposed on Ilford MG RC WT Luster paper.

    I still have some issues with my paper safe box. The first one was made from cardboard, but it wasn't moisture proof and so I spray painted it, resulting in the cardboard warping and ruining the box. The second one was made from sheet plastic, but was thinner than the first and thus could not hold as much paper.

    This week I made a wider box, also from plastic, which I used today. It's proving to be too flexible, thus hard to load and unload from the box without light leaks. I'm thinking I'll have to make a stiff, liquid proof box from sheet brass, soldered together. That'll be for next week.

    I made a presentation folder for the prints, that measure 4.5" by 6", made from silver/gray craft paper. Here's a scan of the back and front of the folder. Inside is a brief description of the print and process.
