Selective development is a process by which the photo paper is exposed beneath the enlarger as normal but not placed in the developer afterwards. Instead, developer is painted or dripped onto the dry paper. I use a number of different brushes for this, including one for shaving. The streaked effect is achieved by draining the developer off the print. These two were then sepia toned. The toner has less of an effect on areas that have received more developer. Overexposing the print and using strong filters (or split filtering with #5 filter) are recommended.
