Salted paper print of a calotype.

Printed 28 January 2018
7x11 inch image on 9x13 Strathmore 500 drawing paper, plate finish

Started exposure facing East away from the sun with a paper diffuser, my daughter and I went to the beach and when we got home the sun was setting. I finished it with 5 minutes under BLB but it didn't print deeply enough to tone well. Toned in gold thiocyanate for over an hour, it did not shift the color much but it did increase contrast and brighten the water a bit. It has a kind of soft light look that reminds me of that morning. I thought I was going to need to re-print it, but I like it just the way it is.

I actually really love the wispiness and softness of this print Ned. Its funny how often good things come from what we wish was a bit different.
