Saturday 22nd February 2020
Contrast effect in photographic printing caused by the distribution of directional light from an enlarger condenser system. The negative highlights are of high concentration and scatter more light with little or no scattering from negative shadow areas, which are of low concentration. This gives a print elevated contrast than a contact print.
