Another example of a straight forward monochrome photographic print. Then the very same print given a two bath sepia toning. This clearly illustrates the tonal changes and added print depth that a sepia toner process gives to a print.
You have to be carefully though because the sepia makes dark (shadow areas) even darker. Obviously the finished effect will depend upon several things. The strength of the toner, the original exposure of the print under the enlarger, time the print is immersed in the toner (the longer it is immersed in the first part of this two batch chemical process, the more pronounced the effect will be).
