Last night, as I was printing, I started thinking about the old proverb by St. Adams about the negative being sheet music or something like that. I was trying to get a negative to do something that it wasn't able to do, and the notion of listening to your negatives crossed my mind. You know, some negatives need more contrast, others less contrast. Some need lots o' dodging and burning, some print beautifully with almost no extra mods. This led me to think about the possibility of some sort of negative exchange to see what others can do with your negative. Could this be pulled off? I think in the apug sanctuary, negatives being a holy grail and all, treating others' negatives with the utmost of care would be paramount. Just a thought.
