That's an excellent point, Bob. I do think the restrictions on digital talk have gotten pretty loose. You didn't even have to type d****l this time! Do you think it would encourage more people to try emulsion making if they could discuss the inkjet negatives they're printing with? I wonder. A negative is a negative, after all. But, I'll take a chance on moderator wrath. I just got a Pentax K5 because the dynamic range is supposed to be excellent (Pentax, because that where all my lens investment is.) It's still in the box, but I'm excited about the creative possibilites.

I actually think part of the problem is lack of darkrooms. My favorite paper emulsion could be made in a temporary bathroom/darkroom. I've been toying with the idea of going to the trouble of making a tutorial for The Light Farm to that effect. I just don't know if it would be worth it.
