    Don't know about Jack Black but Pete Townsend used to do it to his Strat.
    Mmm maybe it was a Gibson after all.

    Heifetz, on being told by an admiring concert goer after a performance that his violin sounded wonderful, held it up to his ear and said: "How odd, madam, I don't hear a thing."

    I heard back from Michael Kenna and as predicted his response was quite short and sweet. He says he does a light selenium toning.

    There was a reason Les Paul developed his guitar sound and a reason people used it. Carlos Santana could have worked with the sound of the Strat but he preferred the audio language of the Les Paul. People who contend that the technical doesn't matter are perhaps image catchers more than print makers.

    Technical and technique are two different beasts. The first does not make the second, but makes the second possible. I'd wager that we all know and use from time to time the technical aspects of Kenna's printing. Given the same negative, in Kenna's darkroom with all his technical accoutrements at hand, would we all make the same print?

    Absolutely not. One of the things John Sexton does in his Fine Tuning workshop is send every participant an identical negative and has them print their version of it before the workshop and bring it with them. At the workshop he has everyone put there interpretations of the print up at the same time. Not one will look like another one.

    What were your experiences on that workshop? Did you learn a lot, improve noticeably etc. I have been thinking about a workshop to improve my printing.

    Just for future reference.. I found much technical information on his interviews page on his website. Here is the link. Some info may be dated, but it looks like Tri-x in D-76 and Ilford MGIV FB in Ilford Universal developer. Then lightly sepia tone. Print size is 7 1/2 x 7 1/2".
