Sixteen Different Alternative Processes from One Negative 
  

Practical experience of alternative photography makes it clear that :
  1. it is necessary to see the original print itself to appreciate its beauty as reproductions will only show the qualities of the reproduction.
  2. there is only one way to learn about a process and that is to do it.
  3. manuals often reflect research without experience.
Here are a series of prints using different processes but the same negative as a guide to the qualities of each process. The subject is the south aisle of Chichester cathedral. The subject has a wide ranger of tone and fine gradation. The negative was made on Ilford FP4 film exposed at ISO 32 to give a negative with a density range of 2.0 suitable for contact printing.
 
The negative was prepared with a salt print in mind. Neither the density of the negative nor the subject matter may be ideal for other processes.
