I'm not a big tech guy. The polar ice caps will have reached NJ by the time I ever do a film/developer test again. I did one of those in school, I still don't understand what the big push is for people do them as often as they do. I've seen too many full-toned boring images from people who spend too much time testing materials and not enough time shooting. I'd much rather go out and make images. If that means staying with the same film/developer combinations that have worked for me in the past, I'm ok with that.
I've just visited your site ... my compliments ... excellent work!!
I'm especially impressed by your work with [ frames ] from "In the Gallery"
Really fine work with a much abused, so-called, "trick". I *like* the way you have used the concept to enhance and compliment your images. A couple of magnitudes above the usual.
I have an interest in various film/ developer/ paper/ printing combinations, but I don't thrash around with them much either.
I'm going back to your web site and study that "Frame business" again. It's called "The Rapture of the Work".
