Exploring Paper Negatives for Darkroom Photographers Video Course by Tim Layton
I received a lot of feedback on the next course that my readers and followers wanted developed next and the vote is in!
UPDATE: The Video Workshop is finished and you can get immediate access to the full video workshop right now. You get a 78-page course training guide and 18 video lessons for over 4 hours of instruction.
In this video course, I am going to take photographers on a journey through the process of using darkroom paper as a negative medium to create black and white fine art prints. Determining the best way to expose and develop your selected darkroom paper is only the beginning.
Paper negatives are often overlooked or only explored on the surface by photographers.
There is an entirely new world that can be explored with paper negatives, and I hope to open that up to you and give you some new ideas for your photography. Even if you already know the basics of using paper negatives, I have several things in this video workshop that I think you will find valuable.
As with all of my video workshops, there is no fluff, I get right to the point and I share everything that I know and have learned about making darkroom prints from paper negatives.
If you have ever wanted to learn or expand your creative possibilities with paper negatives, then this course is for you.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Follow me on my St. Francois Mountain Platinum Histograph Heirloom Fine Art Print Project where I am photographing the St. Francois Mountains that were formed by volcanic and intrusive activity 1.5 billion years ago. By comparison, the Appalachians started forming about 460 million years ago, and the Rockies a mere 140 million years ago.

Hi Andreas, thanks for your questions. You can use any size paper negative you want. That is up to you. I demonstrate the methods and techniques that can be used in any format. In the course, I demonstrate 120 6x9, 4x5, 5x7, 4x10, and 8x10. The reciprocity of the paper will vary just like different films, but I go over long exposures in the course and share the reciprocity of the papers that I recommend. I hope that helps. I look forward to seeing you in the course once it is released later this month.
Two things I World like to know. First, is there 4x5 Paper to be used?
Second, is it possible to get predictable results for long exposures? Mainly thinking about Schwarzschild effect.
I was just researching this yesterday and lo and behold. Very interesting results.
