Now go to a museum and look at the prints in person. The book reproductions are good, but once you see albumen and silver side by side--well, let's just say it started a long slide into 19th century processes for my work.
I grew up with two mammoth plate prints by Watkins on the wall. Talk about having the bar set high before I even knew I was interested in photography! LOL!
At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can be a good day of exercise.
