sunday and monday: made some prints on various kinds and sizes of ilfospeed pe paper (for scale: the “little cat” prints are 18x24cm). it’s amazingly satisfying to manually make a decent-looking print from a negative.
on top of that i’m very amazed by the “little cat” negative, which was taken with a pentaflex sl camera and an auto revuenon lens, (close to?) wide open. pedestrian gear to say the least (to give myself any chance at all, i radio-triggered an off-camera flash - bounced off a big white wall - for this series of cat photos … that cat moved much faster than i could focus 99% of the time). it puts things in perspective to take pictures with that kind of camera.
