We’ve been experimenting again in the darkroom. This time we’ve used a carbon toner by Moersch. This process requires an initial immersion of the silver gelatin print in a strong solution of the carbon toner. We then follow this with a light bleaching and finalize the print with another short immersion in a weaker solution of the carbon toner.
We thought you would like to see the resulting image.
The carbon toner really darkened up the shadowed areas of this print. The water looks black and mysterious. We’re both really liking the look this carbon toner provided.
Marks took this with the Mamiya C330 F3.5 65 mm Black Lens
