    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Does that really work with newer films? I thought Infrared light was the only "safe" light for modern films.

    T-Max is the only film that specifically warns against this method. The magenta dyes used prevent you from seeing anything on the film.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Yes. It has a learning curve, but isn't hard to do. It works best with sheet film in open trays. www.michaelandpaula.com has a forum that discusses it pretty well if the search here doesn't turn anything up.

    At one point I created an IR light table, developed the film in a glass tray above the table and viewed the entire development with IR goggles. Was pretty cool, but my LF days are over thanks to back troubles.

    Now THAT must have looked like a scene out of some 1950s B-grade, b&w, mad scientist, sci-fi thriller...

    I may have one in the "archives".

    Never used one, though. I agree about the masochism ...
