Hi Jay, it is an interesting book, but I found albumen way to hard for the results. I agree that the initial outlay for pt is more expensive, but let me share part of the message Clay sent me, on his print, Clay made a test print and the first print came out like you see. How many times have you printed with silver and have a great print right at the first time?

Of course Clay is experienced and I am sure he has his technique very well controlled but I think the rewards far outweight the initial "pain"...
