This is the TLR and a couple of the paper negatives I did two days ago. I think it is a great set up and interesting process. Of course not everybody is going to be able to work that way. It does, most of all, require easy access to a darkroom, which these days is harder and harder to come by. I am fortunate in that I can use our Arts Center’s darkroom which is in the middle of downtown. It is a way of making traditional b&w negatives without using film, and combining it with a scanner, printer and PS can lead to making large prints, even from small negatives. As I mentioned in a post below, right now I am using Arista Edu glossy RC enlarging paper for the negatives. I can easily get eight negatives from an 8×10 inch sheet of paper, so this is a pretty economical process. I guess if I were a bit more adventurous I could glue together a roll/strip of enlarging paper and use it like a roll of 120 film, that way there would be no need to go back to the darkroom after every exposure.
I am greatly indebted to Django, a Berlin based photographer who does awesome paper negative portraits that are truly in a class by themselves. Seeing his work has inspired me greatly and I would highly recommend a visit to his tumblr site.
