I received Valerie's prints today! They're neat. I've never seen forte polywarmtone paper; it's radically different to the Ilford RC I normally use. Very interesting and strong compositions with lots of creativity.
Thank you, Valerie!
As mentioned in another thread I had some enlarger bulb problems, which I finally managed to sort out to a better solution than I had before.
It only struck me today as I was batch-printing and batch-processing that there are probably faster papers than Ilford Galerie, but that's what I had decided to use so I'm sticking with it. It's an old negative wwhich I've printed before, which is part of what made the problems I had so exasperating.
My print from Mike (mikeg) arrived this week. I can't tell you how much I love this print!! Calla lilies! My favorite flower! The print is beautiful and elegant. Thank you so much, Mike. A great postcard was also included.
