This tutorial includes how to make a test strip and how to make a print using a single exposure. 2 of the videos are included here.

Split grade printing should be the normal way to make prints on variable contrast papers like Ilford Multigrade. One of the new videos describes the technique.

These 3 videos summarise what I cover on my darkroom printing workshops. Here are the videos:

Photographs on Ilford Stand at Photokina

Found this post sitting in my blog drafts. No idea why I didn't post when I wrote it in September but suspect blogger crashed again on my mobile and I forgot to go back to it:

Just received a photo, courtesy of Steven Brierley, of my pictures on the Ilford Photo stand at Photokina 2014. Visit them on stand A10/B15 in Hall 3 until 21st September.
