Im creating a new curve for Carbon, and have a couple of questions.
I have limited from the master curve and tested max black. From there I printed a 129 step table which I made a print, that print was measured using a Colorvision spyder pro and a new curve made and then printed again as a 129 tablet. Now I do expect to have to do this a couple of times but the carbon process takes a while so thought I would ask a couple of questions.
First, the first 7 segments are paper white, the 8th starts showing tone. When I take the new set of readings will it cause a issue will having the first 7 step reading the same or should I manually alter the reading a little bit to get a gradually increase so the smoother XL works.
Second , While Ive never notice a problem making Kallitype or Silver digital negs I do see grain in the highlight when printing carbon on glossy photo paper, properly because of the higher ink lay down or maybe the change from 1430 to 2880 printer. I can see it in the negative too. I assume this is because I have been using TPU PictorioPro not TPS Ultra (this has been solved by a speedy delivery, 5 day from B&H to Melbourne Aust). Anyway the question is do we think the grain will effect the SpyerPro reading to any great extent?
