    I'd like to concur with both of these points, and mention that shallow DOF, moving-subject-with-long-exposure and/or poor focus control should not be confused with "soft focus". If you like soft images, especially portraits (like me), I'd say go ahead and use a softar, soft-focus lens, etc. but please don't forget the dag technology itself has excellent resolution and no grain until you get to the molecular level.

    Also, Thanks to Marco for reminding us of that link!

    Hello Tsuyoshi,
    I wonder if by a "Contemporary Approach" the instructer means a proces similar to the one taught at Photographer's Formulary. This process uses no mercury for development. Next to a real Dag, the best of these images look anemic.

    Hi Bill,

    Sorry for this late reply. I just notice this one.

    The workshop will cover both. Mercury is definitely something Takashi practices on a regular basis.

    Let me know if you have other questions.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi
