I think in a lot of ways, flair is one more expressive tool that, can be understood and used for creative expression. I just got out of the darkroom - spending some time with a neg that I made on a moutain top where the sun was just behind a tree directly in from tof the camera. I was shooting a Rollei SL66 - using movements and a 50mm Distagon with no filter or shade. I was going for a very gritty look in the pine needles with the way the morning light shone off of them and I got a very interesting effect. 60% of the neg has exactly that gritty shine I was looking for but the area of the print where the sun was blazing around the tree, created a softness that set up real contrast to the sharp rest of the image - It will give me something to really toy with in the coming week. -Frank
