The strip of negative is placed in contact with the printing paper and held in that position in a printing frame when the print is made. When contact prints are made usually, the contact sheet is given an average exposure to match the exposure of the majority of the images.
Contact printing is when your image is produced by placing the negative directly onto the photographic material when exposing it to light, thus making an image. For example, you've run out a digital negative on a transparency. You place this on top of a coated cyanotype paper, then expose it to UV light. The final image will be the same size as the negative is. I.e. you don't use and enlarger, like you would when printing from 35mm negatives.
A method of recording details of a macroetched structure. See Sulfur Prints.
Printing with light using negatives in direct contact with light sensitive paper.
A photographic process, with images being transferred from one surface by light exposure to the photosense side of a second. The printed image orientation is dependent on the relative positioning of the surfaces; the tone is dependent on the photosensitive chemical matter used.
A process in which the entire screen mesh is in contact with the surface of the substrate being printed upon. See “Off-contact printing.
Process of exposing a sheet of light-sensitive material by passing light through a previously prepared exposed film.
A photographic process in which an image is transferred from one substrate to another.
the use of a contact aligner to expose a pattern onto a wafer using photolithography.
The process of copying an image or pattern from one emulsion to another so that the two emulsions are in contact with each other under a glass plate or in a vacuum frame. Small contact prints can be made without pressure or vacuum. Static electricity can also be used to keep films together.
the process of placing a negative in contact with sensitized material, usually paper, and them passing light through the negative onto the material. The resulting image is the same size as the negative.
