It looks like you do your own dry mounting, matting, and framing. There is obvious care taken in how the dry mounted print sits in the window, and there are no over cuts in the mats window. Nicely done, very clean.

I got somebody to dry mount and mat a print for me...once...then I learned how to do it.

Thank you. I haven't reached the 10k hours with cutting window mats yet and am still discovering measuring tricks along the way. I have to admit, I find the printing easier than the mounting!

I hear you. It's like subduing some mythic multi-headed beast.

Greg, did you use an inkjet to make the enlarged negative? I do that with alt processes (Kallitypes) and am wondering how well the process translates to contact-printing on silver gelatin.

Sanders, that image is one of 3 I had negatives made by Bob Carnie. I sent him file scans..... BUT one negative was perfect, one had banding issues on his printed negative and the 3rd one (from a scan of a 5x7" neg) had such banding issues as to not be usable. He re-did one and it had similar problems. An expensive failed experiment.....
If i need something similar for a client in the future i admit, i'll just look for someone to a high quality digital print.....but i prefer printing in my own darkroom.

A few, but poorly captured on the iPhone, they appear washed out.

I am sorry to hear that. I've had to deal with banding only once, and that was due to a clogged inkjet print head. I know banding can occur with 8-bit files, but if you're scanning a large negative and working with 16-bit files, you should have been able to get a printable negative.

For the enlarged negative that worked for you: How did the contact print you made with it compare to what you ordinarily print with a regular negative? I am curious as to how well a digital negative contact-prints on silver gelatin papers. Any thoughts?

The contact print worked out really well. As you can imagine, the scanned file from the 4"x10"
negative had lots of detail. The print on Ilford Warmtone is pretty much as good as you'd get from a regular negative.
