Voor de volledigheid... Svend schreef:
Gorgeous, the lithiness of it really brings out her gothness. Maybe one thing isn't so good: the modelling of her chin and neck, the modelling of her upraised hand holding the cigarette. Lith gives a clumpy, mottled tonality in the darks because of its nature and this quality isn't very well-suited to modelling flesh. I have done some lith printing, and love it, but it doesn't suit all subjects. Here it works on the texture of the brick wall wonderfully. It brings out "the brickness of the brick" in such a graphically potent way. It's also great with her hair and eyes. It might be possible to prevent the hard lith modelling of her flesh by giving more exposure and dodging her chin, neck and hand, and pulling the print before the clumpy blacks start to appear there. But this would probably take many hours and much wasted paper. Probably not worth it, probably not possible to control lith in such a precise way. Rgds, Svend
P.S. Huib... ik heb Sean gewoon een enveloppe met het geld gestuurd, dat ging prima.
