At Fleet Street’s Finest we sell C-Type prints and Alumini ChromaLuxe. Digital C-Type photographic prints use similar exposure techniques to ‘dark room’ analogue developing techniques but without the need for a negative.
Equally the enlarging, focusing and exposure to the paper is managed by a computer using lasers or LEDs rather than a bulb. The following process is still very much the same with the paper being processed in chemical developer, followed by a bleech fix before a wash to remove the processing chemicals.
A C-Type print very much has its origins in traditional photographic processes but is originated from a digital file rather
than a negative. Though, obviously, some of our vinatge images are from scans of negatives.
