    I'll agree with Sly about small prints. 4x5 alt prints can be exceptionally beautiful. I have also made 6x6 and 6c7 (120 film) carbon prints and platinum prints -- as well as from a Diana camera.

    That said, I have a couple 11x14 carbon prints in the wash right now (and a couple 4x10 and 8x10's).

    Another possibility -- panoramas made of two, three or four 4x5 negatives (either vertically or horizontally placed).
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I've recently started doing Bromoils. It's been a lot of fun, if not a bit frustrating (but what worthwhile isn't?).
    I also love 4x5 contacts. Smaller ones, too.

    Yeah, sure, but then you must be way smarter than me.

    I know digi negs work well for lots of folks - not that we're going to discuss them here. I'd just rather spend my time breathing fix fumes than frustrated, annoyed, with an expanding waistline, sitting in front of the computer. That's just me.

    P.S. I've posted some cyanotype Xmas cards I made this year with 4x5 negs in the gallery

    The liquid emulsion can be on almost any surface - I have done a few small orotones (prints on glass and gold on the back), you can cheat and use a bronze powder, but if you use real gold, small is best.

    5x4 contact prints are useful for getting to grips with a particular process without spending large amounts of money on materials. They also make wonderful gifts.

    Know how you feel and what you went through. Almost gave up, but...

    ORTHO film - what is the largest size it comes in? I see nothing bigger than 8x10.

    Just wondering - Thanks.

    Regular ortho film, 10x8 is the largest I've seen that is regularly available (Ilford may do larger as part of their ULF programme). If you consider Xray films under the same heading, then 18"x24" would appear the largest, with 14"x17" being faily common.
