    Our home now has a second print from Clay for our modest collection of exchange prints. As usual, anything from Clay is at once both humbling and motivating, as I would expect any print would be from someone who has achieved his level of mastery.

    Thanks very much for the print, Clay! When you have time, maybe you can post a bit about the story behind the shot and anything special you did to create it (in the light or the dark). I was thinking it was a Holga shot, but Dianna swears it's a Diana shot.

    It's a Diana shot alright. The most important thing to remember about shooting toy cameras is to be lucky that day. I generally always shoot the thing with the widest aperture, and count on pyrocat developer to help tame any crazy overexposure in the highlight areas. It also helps to use a film like Tri-X (400TX) or HP-5 that has a shoulder in it's characteristic curve. Other than that, I just get a lot of practice at estimating distance. The shot I sent everyone was taken on a pretty gloomy day, so it was a bit thin and low contrast. I ended up printing it with a 4-1/2 contrast grade filter and doing some dodging on the longhorn's horn to keep some detail there. I developed it in Ilford Warmtone and used my homebrew bleach and redevelop sepia toner that I have tuned up to give me purplish colors on Ilford MGIV.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    Bill,

    Your print graced my doorstep about two minutes ago.

    My involuntary reaction when I peeled back the wonderfully intricate packing to reveal the print was to exclaim "oh my lord!"

    Wonderful print, image and subject matter. Thanks for the cover sheet with the tech details. When you have time, please tell the narrative of the image.

    I could just sit and look at that image for an hour, but I've got a test to study for, so I'll have to hold off on that until later in the week.

    Thank you VERY much!
