Edited the post... some are Polaroid....
Only these are paper negative:
Crop to about 4x5 paper size no preflashing the paper and peacock blue lee filter:
8x10 no crop no pre flashing the paper, but processed with a water bath technique.
I thought I'd try water bath technique first to control contrast.
It works quite well as you can see from the second shot.
However it takes a bit to long to be practical for many shots.
What I do is repeated water baths so that the shadows develop faster than the highlights.
I develop for about 20 seconds and then do a no agitation water bath.
During the water bath only the developer infused in the paper is present.
The high light areas eat the available developer very quickly and stop developing
while the shadow areas are not as greedy and they continue developing.
After the water bath I put the paper into a diluted second developer bath
so as to sloooowly bring the midtones up. It's fun to see this all fade up on the paper.
I only wish I had negative vision
Oh ... and these two were scanned at home with an all in one cheap ass scanner/printer....
I'll have to scan them again at the studio
