Thank you for your reply. No, Lynn is not that fellow. I have purchased Lynns kit of masking some time ago. And while excellent, his techniques do not cover what I have observed before. The fellow that I met is named Charles Phillips and he studied with Ansel some years ago. He has developed this technique of masking himself (over a period of some years) and his prints are in a league of their own. He is capable of isolating areas of the print in a manner that no one else I know of has.
