Hi Folks -
I just found this thread. I didn't even know it was up. Thanks for posting it Denise. I appreciate the encouragement and all the help you have given me since I started with dry plate work.
The reporter who wrote the article got a lot of things wrong (as is obvious from the content of the article). This hang was a survey of several techniques for creating negatives and plates. Everything was enlarged except for the 8x10 contact prints. The images were shot with a variety of cameras - not just my 8x10.
Two of the pieces hanging were dry plate. Both dry plate images were printed out to 16x20.
I appreciate the paper doing the piece. But, they based in on the written show abstract. They never interviewed me, though it sounds like they did.
Anyway, don't believe everything you read.
