How To Make a Large Format Contact Print with a Paper Negative Using the Split-Grade Method

May 08, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

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).
