    Take a look at this video that my daughter Sarah put together. The whole family pitched in on this production.

    That's a great video.. and the soundtrack too.

    I've always wanted to try this type of photography.


    Thanks for the video. :surprised:)

    Thanks! Bruce in the video I'm using KCN. But, I also use concentrated rapid fix. They both work well and the rapid fix won't kill you. :smile:

    Thank you. The image in the film cleared so quickly, I was curious. I've used KCN in a workshop, however am not totally comfortable with it, so plan to use rapid fix in a project I am beginning. Bill Barber

    Thanks, Jeff - Ha! Well, I think so, but I am a little biased.

    Bill, try Kodak or Ilford rapid fix at twice the strength you would use for film. It clears nearly as fast as KCN. The plates look a little different, but still very, very nice.

    Hi Kerik,

    What was the "gizmo" you were using to hold the plate while you made your pour?

    Jim it's a suction cup thingy you would stick to your shower wall and hang a razor or wash cloth off of it. Home Depot or similar.

    And besides the cool gizmo, you're wearing an A7X shirt. Good job!
