Flat fiber paper prints


Fiber papers can be a hazzle to dry flat sometimes, especially when they have glossy surface. For my 13×18/18×24 cm prints, I’ve made a frame made of four aluminum profiles: The print is placed on a glass and the water is wiped off using a car window wiper. The border of the picture is fixed to the glass using the Alu-profiles and pliers. Let the print dry and remove the profiles – it will dry flat, very flat.

Normal contrast development chart has been created using the three step method described by Chris Johnson in his book “The Practical Zone System”. Additional starting points may be found at the Massive Developmental Chart, but may differ from the table above.

Development procedure: Agitation for 30 seconds, then three inversions every 30 seconds.

‘ – Agitation for 30 seconds, stand for 1 hour, then three inversions and then stand for another 1 hour.
