Solarization of New55
Actually it is quite easy to control. Meter and light the exposure of the reversed area one to two stops below the lowest value of the non-solarized image. Process for 2 minutes and peel in moderate light before placing the negative in the fixer to remove the goo. This is the result. All kinds of fun artistic effects can be achieved, and they are startling sometimes, as the effect appears to have delineated itself, almost like magic. Maybe it is.
This is the negative side of New55 PN. The positive side does not solarize.
