Testing Ilford Direct Positive Paper with 8x10 View Camera - Darkroom Discussions

September 26, 2015  •  1 Comment

In this video, I perform two tests with Ilford Black and White Direct Positive Paper using my 8x10 view camera.  I have tested and routinely use this paper outside for my landscape photography with a high degree of success, so I wanted to test it inside with some continuous lighting using daylight lamps.

I used one of my 8x10 view cameras with a Schneider APO-Symmar F5.6 300mm lens.  I used Fotodiox continuous lighting fixtures loaded with 6500K daylight bulbs to light my subject.  I had no idea how effective the lighting with be, but it turned out much better than I anticipated.
