    Ken, why should you ?
    As long as it doesn't fog your paper......

    As for the scanning of neg's is concerned: a friend of mine came back from Poland with some horrible flat B&W 35mm neg's.
    She wanted to waste them, I scanned some and raised the contrast, results: the neg's were saved and printed and looked a lot better than previously thought.
    So even the hybrid part can help you in the darkroom to get better prints.

    So what.

    IMHO your friend had the right idea, trash the junk, learn the lessons, and back off to Poland to try again.

    AFAIAC the biggest curse of Digital is getting sucked into wasting time saving something that should be trashed.

    If we (the users of APUG) were to start using digital as a crutch any time analog methods get tough or inconvenient we'd end up as a digital forum.

    Our photographic aspirations and APUG's focus doesn't need to be practical, easy, or fit everybody's life. That is not what makes APUG special.

    APUG is special because it's focus is Analog.

    Here are a couple of images that were selected for the Plastic Fantastic exhibition with the Texas Photographic Society. Both are traditional silver gelatin prints enlarged in the darkroom. Both have also been printed using hybrid alt processing techniques. Actually the first two are mine. All 52 that were selected are on this site. Bill Barber

    And your point is what?

    That good work can be done in a hybrid workflow.

    That somebody here fudged the rules.

    People can do good work in a full digital workflow too.

    It doesn't mean I want to discuss color management or get back into the digital rat race.

    People can do good work in a full analog workflow too.

    None of this is exactly breaking news.

    So, my question for you is why is it so important pollute this site with hybrid ideas when there are so many other sites that deal with digital?

    Mark,
    Bill's point seems to be that if he can't get his way than at least he will needle people. Amazingly similar to what other members have done in the past under the same and similar circumstances.

    Which reminds me there is a hybrid group here on apug: http://www.apug.org/forums/groups/hy...oto-group.html Try it out.

    Hey Everybody...

    If you DONT include hybrid, the NEW WORLD way to use the analog process, GUESS What will happen...

    Film will DIE faster than it is now....

    Look at MF, LF and ULF... most work done now is HYBRID !!

    How many use 100% Analog ? not MANY :-(

    100% Analog ROCKS !!! BUT... This is the 21st Century and people want to use digital in the workflow. The other forum is cool, BUT people want to hang out where everybody else is.

    Sean... You should really have a HYBRID forum here, you are loosing subscriber $$.

    If you capture ANALOG.. Then you are a APUG'er !!!

    Thanks

    Scott
