Lith printing

In June I went to the eastern Sierra to shoot with a group of large format wielding women. It was great and I learned lots. One of the things I learned was the lith-printing processĀ and I have been putting it into practice with a remarkable success rate. It is the perfect process for the less-than-stellar darkroom technicians such as myself. I have been using Moersch lith chemicals and Fomabrom classic paper. Depending on how much solution D (bromide) you put in the developer, the paper gives a lovely brown to orange. Not so fond of the oranges, but put the paper in a weak selenium solution for just a few seconds and you’re back to a warm brown. I will have several of these prints on display and for sale at San Francisco Open Studios, Oct 13-14, 2012
