Still Proofing

Right in the middle of working on my latest print, I ran out of the ImagOn Pro film that I favored because of its thickness and ability to hold ink. I checked but found that I couldn't find any of the old Imagon Pro for sale. I'm thinking Dupont may have discontinued the film and switched to the newer ImagOn Ultra Rapid.

After receiving a roll of the new film, I found that it's thinner than the ImagOn Pro and exposure times are shorter. This necessitated new step tests to get a feel for the new film.

I find this testing tedious but necessary to get the exposure times correct before I feel comfortable enough to move ahead with the final image.
