Second Set of Tests with Ilford Direct Positive Paper Indoors - Darkroom Discussions

September 26, 2015  •  1 Comment

In this video, I continued my testing of Ilford Direct Positive Black and White paper in the studio with continuous lighting (6500K).  You may want to watch the first video if you haven't already for context.  

Based on my first set of tests, I modified my technique this time.  I still metered my highlights and shadows at ISO 3 and F/45 as last time.  My bellows draw called for two stops of exposure compensation.  My average meter reading suggested a 2-minute exposure.  Adding in exposure compensation, 8 minutes of exposure was suggested.  This time, I reduced the total exposure time by 20% for 6.5 minutes based on the feedback I got from my first tests.
