    SO, How'd he do this?

    I can't figure out how he got the tones.

    Any insight?

    I don't mean to sound like a smart a.., but it seems like making the correct exposure with the right format to retain the details, with controled lighting would do the trick.

    I agree with Ann. Looks like an overcast day with correct exposure and expanded development would do the trick. This is why it is good to match the paper's scale to the film (ugh... testing again), but without knowing the paper and film properties it's hit or miss at best. tim

    This is the fellow that reportedly prints Salgado's images. The interesting thing is that there are at least three individuals involved in the process of Salgado's images.

    This fellow is undeniably a great printer.

    Getting back to Salgado, all Salgado does is compose and expose the film. Someone else develops the negatives and then this fellow prints the negatives.

    Whatever they are doing in concert works really well.

    My guess is that a filter was used, but I don't know what the subject colors were.

    I'm not sure about the filter. These grapes (chardonnay) are greenish. Yet the leaves appear to be "normal" tonality or maybe a bit darkened. So how would you achieve that with a filter?

    Whatever the answer(s), some good Meursault from say, '03, aged a few years, sounds like a great idea to me.

    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.
