    I've been enjoying these, and I particularly like the toning on the latter ones; they remind me of a freshly exposed but undeveloped salt or albumen print (if only it would be possible to preserve that tone in the final print!)

    Thanks, I had a blast doing these. And yes, the toning of the latter ones is pleasing. It's a combination of the blue film and brown pyrocat stain, I took saturation down about 50% in PS after scanning. The first one was way over exposed as I forgot to adjust the aperture so the stain was essentially "lost" by pulling it so far in the scanner.

    If you wanted some vintage looking output for participants, you could have them printed on metal

    I've used the dame approach to toning a couple of times as well, works like a charm! I find it very nice, but I understand that some people prefer a more neutral approach.

    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Let's put that down on Android being able to rephrase whatever I type into something that lurks in the depths of my mind and probably should better be left there
