Blanco Negro is happy to announce the new Bromoil paper from Foma Bohemia is now available to purchase online. I sent off a few sample packs to experienced bromoil printers who said their initial testing shows great promise.
Being a novice bromoiler myself, I have yet to take the plunge and have a crack. I did make a series of grade tests as well as a Fomatol PW developer test. It seems the BO 113 has little Chloride salts, so the effect with the PW was minimal. This also explains the neutral colour of the paper. My next step is toner tests, mainly Selenium, Gold and Thiocarbamide, followed by a bromoil run. Fingers crossed I get some sort of result!
The paper is available in either 10/8″ X 25 sheet pack or 11/14″ X 10 sheet pack

Been in the dark eight days straight… should have a bed in there!
I just thought I'd share a pic of Jack Picone's latest panorama folio. The edition consist of ten hand made 24/10″ prints which I was lucky enough to print for Jack mid last year. I have my copy of the folio handy if anyone is interested in seeing the whole set. They are also for sale of course through Jack's website. He was a pleasure to have in the darkroom, which is another little perk of a lab rat! http://jackpicone.org/
Yea haa for friday….. Just thought I’d share some old photo mag covers from the 80’s thru to the naughties. A friend passed on 3 boxes of these goodies and I’m slowly getting through them. They reminded me of the feeling one gets when printing a neg from 20 years ago, watching it appear through the developer and being instantly transported back in time, to the very moment of exposure and even to events leading up to the shot.
