Thread: Mystery Colour

    Mystery Colour

    I recently processed some direct-positive images from my Harman-Titan pinhole camera and some come out with a yellow stain. Anyone know what causes this.
    I had the sheets refrigerated and wonder if the cold affected them, however, other images came out fine - no yellow stain.
    Thanks all

    Which direct positive paper did you use? Can you post. A color scan of the image?

    I'm just pulling stuff out of the air here, but that DP paper is fiber based. Did you process it like you should, or did you do the same as with RC coated paper?

    Fixer can stain a print yellowish if you don't wash it for long enough.

    Did all the prints from that developing session turn yellow, or just one or two?
