1 HOW TO MAKE TEST STRIPS AND ENLARGEMENTS IN THE MGJH COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES DARKROOM

2 THIS IS AN ENLARGER It is used to make photographic prints (enlargements) from negatives

3 THESE ARE NEGATIVE CARRIERS They are used to hold negatives in the enlarger

4 THE NEGATIVE IS PLACED IN THE CARRIER WITH THE EMULSION (dull side) DOWN It is also best to place the negative upside down in the carrier so the image is oriented correctly to the person using the enlarger

5 PLACE THE NEGATIVE AND CARRIER BACK INTO THE ENLARGER

6 TURN ON THE FOCUSING SWITCH ON THE TIMER

7 OPEN THE APERATURE ON THE ENLARGER LENS SO THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF LIGHT CAN PASS THROUGH IT

8 ADJUST AND FOCUS THE ENLARGER AS YOU COMPOSE YOUR IMAGE

9 TURN THE APERATURE ON THE ENLARGER LENS DOWN TWO TO THREE STOPS This reduces the amount of light passing through the negative and lens so your image will have proper contrast

10 TURN OFF THE FOCUSING SWITCH ON THE TIMER

11 THIS IS A TEST STRIP A test strip is a narrow piece of photographic paper which is used to help you determine the correct exposure time for your photographic enlargement.

12 TEST STRIP CARD It is used with a test strip to help you determine the correct exposure time for your photographic enlargement. This is a

13 THE TIMER IS USED TO CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF LIGHT USED WHEN MAKING TEST STRIPS AND ENLARGEMENTS

14 PLACE THE TEST STRIP IN THE EASEL (EMULSION UP) AND COVER ALL EXCEPT THE FIRST FIFTH OF IT WITH THE TEST STRIP CARD Remember, the EMULSION OF THE PAPER is shiny!

15 It is used to time units of light that are projected toward the photographic paper. The timer is started by pushing this button

16 THE NEXT FIVE SLIDES SIMULATE WHAT IS DONE TO MAKE A TEST STRIP

17 TEST STRIP CARD PUSH TIMER BUTTON ONCE

18 TEST STRIP CARD PUSH TIMER BUTTON ONCE

19 TEST STRIP CARD PUSH TIMER BUTTON ONCE

20 TEST STRIP CARD PUSH TIMER BUTTON ONCE

21 TEST STRIP CARD COMPLETELY REMOVED

22 How many units of light have hit this section of the test strip?

23 DEVELOP THE TEST STRIP DEVELOPER (2 MINUTES) STOP BATH (30 SECONDS) FIXER (2 MINUTES) WATER WASH (5 MINUTES IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT). If not, a quick rinse is all that is needed. MINUMUM AGITATION (moving photo paper in solutions) NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE IN ALL TRAYS

24 Which section of this test strip looks good?

25 MAKE SURE THE ENLARGER SETTINGS DO NOT CHANGE OR EASEL BE MOVED BETWEEN THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR TEST STRIP AND THE EXPOSURE OF YOUR ENLARGMENT

26 PLACE A PIECE OF PHOTO PAPER IN THE EASEL (EMULSION UP) Remember, the EMULSION OF THE PAPER is shiny! AND……..

27 ………..PUSH THE TIMER BUTTON THE REQUIRED NUMBER OF UNITS OF LIGHT REQUIRED

28 DEVELOP THE ENLARGEMENT DEVELOPER (2 MINUTES) STOP BATH (30 SECONDS) FIXER (2 MINUTES) WATER WASH (5 MINUTES) MINUMUM AGITATION (moving photo paper in solutions) NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE IN ALL 4 TRAYS

29 Your photo enlargement

30 Which section of this test strip looks good?

31 Your photo enlargement

32 Which section of this test strip looks good?

33 Your photo enlargement

34 EACH NEGATIVE THAT YOU ARE MAKING AN ENLARGEMENT FOR NEEDS TO HAVE THIS PROCEDURE DONE EVERY TIME. Allow 15 minutes to make one test strip and enlargement from a single negative. Only one test strip is needed (providing conditions do not change) if you plan to make more than one enlargement from the same negative.
