Silver Gelatin is a monochrome imaging process based on the light sensitivity of silver halides. A negative is briefly exposed onto light-sensitive paper, and then washed through a series of chemicals. The first round develops the image, and the second stops the developing process. That is followed by a bath of fixer which removes the silver halides so that it becomes safe to bring into the light. Finally, a water bath clears the fixer from the print. The final image consists of small particles of silver bound in a layer of gelatin. This creates a depth and quality that is much more exciting and detailed than standard, two-dimensional printing.
