Re: Light Issues
A sun-bed will work fine. The normal exposure range about 3-10 mins

This is my first post, I would appreciate any help anyone can offer.
I am doing some Van Dyke prints, only problem is that London in
October is not the sunniest place. When there is any sun, it is very
unpredictable and printing is not proving very successful.
I have not had any luck locating a UV processing unit that I can have
access to. I was wondering if anyone had ever used a tanning bed to
expose their prints? Alternatively, does anyone have any suggestions
as to another light source I can use as I cannot afford to purchase my
own unit and am not technically minded enough to build my own. It was
suggested that I could use a single lamp, but I'm worried that the
light would not be even over the print as my negs are 12x16".
Any comments would be gratefully received.
