Hello I thought it would be good to post retrospective of some my work using liquid silver emulsion. This technquic must be one of my favourite alternative proccess, I love the sense of texture it adds to my photographs.

    I must ask, Are you contacting negatives to this silver emulsion? or are you shooting straight to your coated paper? one last question I promise, what brand of emulsion do you use?

      Hi Lee I don’t generally contact print onto the silver emulsion, I normally use it like conventional photographic paper with an enlarger, some of the prints on my blog are up to 100x75cm. For quite a while now I have been using the SE1 emulsion which is sold by Silverprint in London.

      Hope that’s some help!


  2. Love the river in spate at Glen Sligachan and also the ruined wagon ones – gives them quite an unreal quality doesn’t it?
