man made cameras, emulsions and images

i've been on the long haul to use up every bit of film and paper i have
and while it has been a new years resolution of mine for awhile
i think i am getting to that goal sometime soon.
i am almost there, there IS light at the end of the tunnel.
soon enough i will pare down most of my personal shooting
( and hopefully portrait work ) to using only 1 camera and home made emulsions
and hand coated papers ( and glass negatives ).
while i enjoy the aspect of store bought-stuff, i have grown fond of
the other side. i've made my own emulsions before, and have been coating with store bought stuff
off and on since the 80s.
i like the look and haphazardness that hand made can make.
im so looking forward to it, i can hardly wait !
ill probably make a good amount of salt water emulsion seeing i live near salt water it might be fun to go local !
im tired of fractions of seconds, and would rather expose in seconds
