(Darkroom special effect)
Create a high contrast positive image by using a red filter setting
of 200 (color enlargers) or a 5+ square acetate filter (black and white enlargers)
Use 5 second intervals for the test print.
Be sure the f-stop on the enlarger is set to 2.8 (brightest light
Put the print in the developer for 1 minute and then put the print in
a tray (do not put the print in the stop and fix solutions).
Reset the enlarger to 1 second and remove the contrast filter (red
filter should be set to zero or the square acetate filter removed).
Flash the print in the tray for 1 second with white light.
Return the print to the developer for 1 minute (agitate
Then place the print in the stop bath for 30 seconds.
Then place the print in the fixer for 4 minutes (preview after 1
minute and then soak for 3 additional minutes).
Determine the appropriate exposure and repeat the process to produce
a finished print, not a test sheet.
Leave the all prints in the water solution when finished.
