How To Make a Large Format Contact Print with a Paper Negative Using the Split-Grade Method
In this video, I show how to make a split grade silver gelatin contact print in the darkroom using grade 2 RC glossy darkroom paper as a negative medium. The printing process for making contact prints with paper negatives is exactly the same for film. I made my contact printing lamp out of a shop light that I sourced from my local hardware store. I used a 15W incandescent lightbulb (2900k).
