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