Masking Kit, NEW UPDATED VERSION, contains:
Two Registration pins (1/4" round
to fit standard paper hole punches).* Please note that the original
negative is NEVER punched or marred in any way when using
this system. These pins can be used to easily make your own
pin-registration carrier system with the instructions included
in the manual. The Precision
Pin-Registration Carrier Systems are also available
for photographers who want extreme accuracy, ease and efficiency
in mask-making and printing.
One sheet of 5.5" x 5.5" diffusion
material - the ideal textureless diffusion material for use
in making masks, printing, and "on the scene" pre-exposure
in the camera. It is far superior to other kinds of diffusion
sheets. Because it is thin and flexible (a translucent film)
it can be sandwiched in between masks and or negatives while
maintaining perfect pin-registration (essential for some masks).
New - waterproof material and more scratch resistant.
A book of complete instructions on various
techniques, including mask making and use. It includes articles
on the SCIM (shadow contrast increase mask), CRM (contrast reduction
mask), and HLM (highlight mask) by Dr. Dennis McNutt and Mark
Jilg, with complete instructions on making a pin-registration
negative carrier for your enlarger. Also includes detailed information
and instructions for making Unsharp Masks. Dodge Masks, Fog
Masks and Special Contrast Increase Masks, Inkjet masks, Custom
contrast reduction masks, balanced SCIM (balanced shadow contrast
increase masks) and Spotting masks by Lynn Radeka are also discussed
in detail, with step-by-step instructions, diagrams and illustrations
for making and using each type of mask. Comparison illustrations
give the reader a good example of how each mask affects the
Instructions and formulas on procedures
that Lynn Radeka uses the most, including his highlight "brightener"
bleach formula, Ansco 120 print developer, and SLIMT contraction
development of the negative for high quality results.
Darkroom printing records for documenting
printing manipulations, including dodging and burning with masks,
etc. These record sheets may be Xeroxed or copied by the user.
Discount voucher worth $50 off the purchase
price of any Radeka original print off of this internet site.
A CD with screensaver, slideshow and
desktop images in clear resolution Black and White along with
descriptions of which masks or other techniques were used.
The CD also includes informative interactive masking examples
and Inkjet Dodge Mask Photoshop actions (with reference color
file) for automatically generating inkjet dodge masks optimized
for shadow or highlight control - especially beneficial when
using variable contrast printing papers!
Note: These pins are not included if the Contrast Masking
Kit is purchased as part of the "Complete" Precision
pin-registration carrier system. The carrier system already
includes pins attached to the glass carrier.
