    While I often make contact sheets for ease of reference in the darkroom when doing enlargements, posting one wouldn't accomplish your goal, Eric. When doing LF, I usually "work" the scene with a framing aid first, and then set up only at the selected location(s).

    Contact sheets are interesting, showing the "flow" of a particular session.. and possibly something of an insight into the photographer's selection process. Patric Demarchelier's web site includes a number of his contact sheets.

    One word of caution - the images here are NOT "finished" and they are not meant to - and do NOT represent my "best" work -- they only illustrate "starting points" for the darkroom work.

    In one of the critques posted to my "Untitled", in the Critque gallery, something was said to the effect of "an unhappy, tense model". I don't think so ... you might draw your own conclusios from the contact sheet -- one of eight from that session.

    Thanks Ed. That's jsut the stuff I'm looking for. Shows as you say the flow. If we could get people more involved in this thread I think it could be very instructional for the newbies. They could see our contacts and make suggestions ask questions and we could do the same for them.

    There's a lot of talent on this board for sure.

    As far as your contacts Ed, I like the middle row, second down and also the one just to the right of it. She looks very relaxed to me.

    Great idea Eric. I'll be interested to see how others here arrive at their good images too.
    I tend to use sheet film for landscape stuff, so I could get the contact sheets together from a day out. I'm a bit like Les about contact sheets on the 35mm, but I'll dig something out. My scanner is due to arrive within the next couple of weeks.

    Well, Eric, here's one that's also demonstrating what old spirals can do to films. [The damn thing chewed my film!]

    Close your eyes to see. This will take a while.
