I'm sure there is for some people Lowell, because Ilford sell a warm-tone paper developer and Adox sell what was formerly known as Agfa Neutol-WA.Lowell Huff wrote:Is there any interest in a warm tone print developer?
I sometimes wonder how much the developer formula actually contributes to providing warmer tones rather than those warmer tones being the actual characteristic of the light sensitive emulsion itself?
I suspect the results of warm-tone developers are subtle if anything depending on the papers chosen by the photographer or darkroom technician.
Certainly the most influential aspect of tone is the "color" of the base. I have found, and it is well documented, that the type of antifog is also influential in the tone. They can be and are more than subtle.
