Back to lith printing

These are the results of a few recent lith printing sessions with use of medium format negatives, created with Holga camera.
It's really amazing how this process is transforming images, revealing something completely new from the photograph with each print.
I've used both colour and B&W negatives. Generally colour negatives can give good results with lith, but not all are suitable and orange mask creates difficulties and increases exposure time. It’s especially challenging with moody, misty, low contrast holga images I’ve used. 

These are the test prints of a possible bigger series of a pictorial landscapes I'd like to create. 

All images printed with Rollei Vintage Lith Developer on Fomatone MG classic paper.(first, third and fifth printed with colour neg.)
