I printed my first PiezoDN target with my 1500 (=1430) printer, using the 1430-PiezoDN-Master curve, then printed it on a brown carbon tissue.
I use this tissue for the image I’m working on currently, and consider it having a medium contrast. It is dedicated to make second layers, a third one being dedicated to print the blacks.
The print is developed on polyester and hasn’t been transferred to paper. It is quite sharp at this point.
I scanned it like an opaque document with a white background, no sharpening or anti-dust settings, only levels adjustments in PS to get close to what I see.
The original file has been reduced to 75% size in Print Tool, and is about 6" wide.
No pizza wheels surgery yet, obviously…
I’m rather pleased by the tonal progression, and could probably use a longer exposure to get the highlights at 255, but wonder if I want that or limit the DR of the negative.
My question is about graininess. I didn’t expect to see that much.
Does this seem normal to you?
Thanks for your help.
