Hi Lizard, and welcome. But it looks as if your camera badly needs a CLR.

These almost appear to have been made from contact printing paper negatives. Are you using Tim Rudmann's formulas?

Interesting effect, this isn't something I'd run across before.

I sort of like the softness, a sort of pictorialist look, perhaps? It works very well for some of these images.

Several of the images look quite good, and several look like pretty much nothing photographs you're trying to salvage by applying a whacky printing process to them.

I really really really dislike the repeated patterns of blotchiness that appear in some of there, though. That's just ugly.

Sorry, but I knows nothing about Tim Rudmann's formulas to my shame...

I think there are no any repeated patterns, analog printing process itself does not involve any regularity...
Thank you all for your attention and feedback!

They're not really strictly repeated, what I mean is, for instance, the pattern of darker spots on #11. Sure, they're analog and randomly placed, etc. They're still quite unattractive.

OK, thank you, I can understand you... -)

Hmmm. Some look like infrared conversion; don't care for that. The only one that really caught my eye as one I liked was the wooden plank bridge, walkway/not sure what to call it.

Lizard King,

Thank you for kicking my day off with something well worth looking at.  I doubt that digital delivery really does justice to the beauty of the prints themselves.

Keep on keeping on with your adventure.

Walter

I am spell bound by #6, though I find none of the other pictures nearly as effecting.  For me, #6 is frontal, but deep.  The others are more flat.  I see the printing more and think more about the printing in the others.

Having shot with IR film answers the question as to why the images had a paper negative feel to them.

As to Tim Rudman: The Master Lithographer's Lith Printing Course ISBN 1-902538-02-1 This is the book I used with my advanced photo students who wanted to really get into some different stuff. It's a great book and easy to follow.
