We just finished toning the images Marks took with his Mamiya C330 (Ilford HP5 of course) and thought we’d share these with you.
We are still totally impressed with the Moersch Tanol which we’re using to develop the film as it’s providing some of the finest negatives we’ve ever seen. The detail is almost three dimensional and the grain is so fine that it’s sometimes difficult to focus in the enlarger. Add to this the Moersch ECO 4812 paper developer and the Moersch MT2 Carbon toner and you have a match made in heaven, for us “film junkies!”
The scan does not do this justice. Yes, I know, you’ve heard me say this before. Honestly on the silver gelatin print you can actually see the veins on the butterfly’s wings.

The next one is of a mama pine tree and her young. The detail on the tree trunks is so sharp and clear.
Standing strong and hoping they will grow as big as mama pine tree, these young saplings are just gorgeous in their detail. The carbon toning enhances their natural woodsy look.
