I'm taking a class using an 11 x 14 restored antique view camera. Today, we made prints from our negatives by exposing them directly to sunlight. Next week we will learn how to tone the prints to change their overall colors, as well as hand-coloring with watercolor paint and pencils. This is my second print today (the first one was better) and I'm taking it out of the water bath. Next week, I'll post the final product.
