Split-toning. Tips and tricks

Toning is when we take a traditional black-and-white photographs and dip it in chemicals changing its color permanently. Toning has been around for centuries.

Split-toning is a generic, somewhat mercurial term which is used to describe the deliberate attempt at tonal splits in the darkroom. However, split effects have been with photography from the very beginning and may well have formed an historical precedent for many modern practitioners of these processes.
