Another example of how sepia toning can alter the appearance and tonal depth of a monochrome photographic print. This simple two bath chemical toning process can show detail in the shadow areas and it is perfect for such a print as this. Not only does sepia toning add tonal depth and a different perspective to a print but it also gives it an archival quality. It protects the print from sunlight (it will not fade like an untreated or untoned monochrome photographic print).
