noseoil said:John, the only time I've had trouble with azo, my fault. Fixer, not enough time, old fixer, incomplete washing, improper toning. Is all of your chemistry fresh? You might try once more with fresh chemistry for everything. Toner: KSRT use 1:20 for 3 minutes. Wash for an hour in still clean water if you don't have running water.tim
John Bartley said:The second thing I did was change the light source. I bought an R40 85 watt flood, which is many watts less than recommded by Smith and Chamlee, but is closer to the 300 watt R40 temperature than what I was using. That pretty much solved the problem. I guess that the paper is quite blue sensitive, so using a lower temperature bulb was accentuating the lighter colours, particularly the greys and whites. Once I bumped up the temperature, the whites pretty much stayed white and the blacks got crisp.
