Assignment 3 for 122: Split Filter Printing

Split filter printing is a printing technique with variable contrast paper that allows you to utilize both a low contrast and high contrast printing filter on a single image. This can be particularly useful when printing high contrast negatives. 

For this assignment, choose a negative that may be a slight challenge to print. Then make your best print using a contrast filter between #2 to #3. Feel free to dodge and burn if need be.

Once you have that basic print. See what kind of print that you can make using split filter techniques. Usually you will double expose the image with a high contrast filter like a #4 or #5 and a low contrast filter like a #00. Depending on your negative, you may need to dodge or burn the individual contrast filters when you expose them to your paper.

Due in class on March 20th are your basic and split filter prints.
