    Well, I did manage to get through this article and , let me tell ya, the authors were not exactly knowledgeable when it comes to actual alt processes. They were saying that Van Dyke prints were just another name for Kallitypes!

    I'm thinking the only way one could confuse and actual Kallitype print with an digital impostor was if they were both printed in a magazine. When you hold an actual well printed Kallitype or Cyanotype up to the light you can see the metal in the print. A real Kallitype can have amazing dmax which a digital print can't come close to. I'm sorry, I can't see how the two couldn't be told apart by anyone with half decent vision!

    I'm normally not opposed to those who mimic classic techniques digitally. My only problem is when they try to pass it off as the real deal. I enjoy being able to tell people exactly how my prints are done (normally a chemistry lesson they could care less about) instead of "oh, well...I downloaded this app for my phone...i hit a few buttons..."

    There's not enough ink in my printer to simulate the shadow density of my Kallitypes, anyway.
