    You have running water for the small stuff, eh?
    Nope. I only have to run up one flight for the small stuff.

    depends on "you print" -- bigger than 16x20 goes to the lab (usually bigger than 11x14 even -- in fact right now I don't think I have a full set of 16x20 trays!).

    Biggest so far: 50x50 in

    The largest prints that I make are 20X24". I havd made quite a number of cyanotypes, vandykes, kallitypes and carbons in this size from in-camera negatives.

    I currently do not print any larger than 11x14. Why? It's a combination of the fact that big prints have never really done much for me (any more so than a smaller print of the same image), and the fact that I feel like an image loses something if enlarged more than the format can really support. Unless I'm enlarging from 35mm, I don't want to see grain in my prints. I want them to be sharp, very sharp. And I want good tonality. And the way these things come together means that I don't print 35mm or 645 negs any bigger than 8x10 usually, and 6x7cm and 4x5" negatives any bigger than 11x14. I can see myself enlarging my 8x10 negs to 16x20, but that won't be for a while as I don't see myself being able to afford an 8x10 enlarger any time soon.

    Take one or two steps back, look again and the grain will have disappeared. As Capa once said: Ïf your photos are not good enough it means you were not close enough. When looking at the finished enlargement the reverse is true.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    I print mostly 11x14 with a half inch white border around the image. I also print quite a few 16x20's. I like the large format as I shoot a lot of texture which I think works well at 16x20. I shoot mostly with a 4x5 and some 8x10 with a few 5x7. I like small print too. Around 4x4 or 6x6. I like the gemlike quality of them and the subject matter is very simple.
