As I have been busy making collodion negatives these three are my first salt prints from calotype negatives this summer. Taken at Östarp, a lovely place close to where I live.
The calotypes were all more or less underexposed, then overdeveloped to compensate and allowed to fog a bit on their backs. Thus their grainy appearance. Full plate size and gold toned salt prints.
Biskopsgatan/Tomegapsgatan/Stora Tomegatan, Lund.
This is an albumen print, gold toned and printed from a calotype negative – paper negative – made from Baldus instructions.
Sand is also a good song by Lee Hazlewood. If the original version doesn’t suit you there is a cover by OP8, or even Einsturzende Neubauten.
Albumen print, whole plate size and gold toned. Printed on a Monday from a Baldus calotype taken on a Sunday.
One more early morning picture from Lilla Sigridsgatan. Taken as a Baldus calotype and then salt printed. As usual it is gold toned and in whole plate size.
