MY WILD HORSE SILVER GELATIN WORKFLOW

Ice Princess 30x40 Silver Gelatin Fine Art Wild Horse Print by Tim LaytonIce Princess 30x40 Silver Gelatin Fine Art Wild Horse Print by Tim Layton In this article, I share the technical details on making handmade wild horse fine art prints in the darkroom. 

My process is entirely analog from beginning to end.  I expose black and white film in my camera and develop it in my darkroom.  Then I create each new handmade silver gelatin print using my Beseler/Heiland optical enlarging system and chemical-based workflow.  I follow a strict and proven archival workflow to ensure your new artwork will last a lifetime. 

No part of my process is outsourced to any other party, so you know it was made with my hands.

I have already shared the details for my black and white film choices and development processes with you in another article.  

I also shared the Nikon F6 and D4S camera details and the budget-friendly lenses I use for my wild horse photography.

In this article, I share the details of how I make my black and white wild horse fine art prints using my Beseler 45VXL enlarger with the Heiland Splitgrade controller system.  I use a 4x5 and 8x10 set of enlargers to create my silver gelatin prints.

I created a video on my YouTube Channel when I unpacked and set up the enlarger.
