Reads like a very interesting topic. Could you and others with that knowledge talk a bit about the changes from your perspective?

I listened with great interest to Alan Ross talk last summer at the View Camera conference about continuing the AA prints and how Ansel never made a straight print. Of course no one makes a completely straight print. It is modified by exposure time, filter, dodge & burn, paper selection, etc.. He went on to show us the variety of techniques used by AA and then more recent digital (may lightning not strike) manipulation.
