    I watched until I saw him put them on a scanner.

    Oh, whew! I'm not the only one that thought that project was a waste of a perfectly good Tachihara.

    So the images were acceptable enough to pique your interest to watch. Then you stopped because he uses a process you don't think it belongs.

    All these times, I thought it's the image that matters.

    (Personally, I don't think the images are great either, but that's another story)

    Maybe we should ALL consider giving him a pat on the back and some positive reinforcement, rather than a slap in the face, for even attempting to shoot this kind of project onto 8x10. No matter the originals being RC paper negatives...
    I'm sure he has a (constricted) budget to work with, so he's using ingenuity to create something different rather than just settling for shooting it on digital like of of you tightwads here most likely would

    I tip my hat to him.

    Let me see...

    First Generation: RC Photo Paper.
    Second Generation: Epson Flatbed Scanner.
    Third Generation: Invert Image in Photoshop.
    Fourth Generation: Additional processing in Photoshop... For final B&W Production.
    Fifth Generation: Display 'Scaled' images on Monitor (860px 682px 'At best') for Web viewing.

    "You get the idea"...
