Pinhole paper positive made by reversal process using safe chemicals.

( Really hard to make these without touching them at all... I was wearing nitrile gloves, and that fingerprint happened before I put it into the bleach... any touch at all leaves a mark. oh well! :)

Hi Graham! Hope you are doing well.
I'm using weak and safe 3% hydrogen peroxide from the drug store plus a little citric acid.
Check out my reply to Jackie on this photo.

Also, more than you will ever want to read in this long thread at photrio.

It's a bit finicky but it's fun to see the positive image come up. And I think you will appreciate something that I like about it: the final paper that you hold in your hand is the same paper that was in the camera... made by the light from the subject at that moment. With a pinhole, the light really does come off the subject and directly onto the paper... that connects the paper to the subject in a way I like.

Hi Ned love the images with this process! How are your whites coming out as mentioned by Joe van C. his whites were rather darker than normal?

Hi Cedric, thanks! I'm actually aiming at having slightly coppery or cream colored brightest highlights, then I use weak pot ferri reducer and they turn nice bright white. ( 0.3% pot ferri just 30 seconds, then 5% hypo for 20 or 30 seconds is all it takes )

I read somewhere that Alfred Stieglitz used to dip his prints in weak pot ferri straight from the fixer, to make the highlights pop out. I haven't tried that yet with these, but it might work!
