hello

Anyone making enlarged inter-negatives from Scala originals? I have a
number of images on Scala film from which I want to make enlarged
film negatives for Van Dyke printing and I'm looking for the right
developer.
I've used diluted Dektol in the past but have not been happy with the
results. I have also tried LC-1 but could not build up enough density
for a negative. I'm thinking that I need to use something in the
middle of those two developers. Dave Soemarko (in his Post-Factory
Photography article )suggested using diluted D-76 but I have also
heard that HC-110 works well diluted. Another developer I have come
across in my search on the web is Clayton Extend Plus, but no
information on anyone who has used it.
My images are of fairly low contrast with most separation needed in
the mid-tones.

thanks for your help,
david
