    Re: Lenses for shooting 8x10 and making contact prints

    When I get my big piece of tempered glass it will have a bed, a dedicated contact print frame/table with handles and safety features.

    Bryan, I didn't realize you use the acrylic with your large scanner. I just saying what I have planned for a while.

    For Drew, I use AN when needed. Too expensive to use everywhere. Good thing I got a stack when the price was right.

    Randy, I'd love to see the 14x36 prints when you get to it! Built into a dedicated contact frame like you are talking about sounds like the ticket.

    I'm still trying to get my alt. process printing area setup. I have all the materials but I'm not sure about wiring and don't have the money to pay anyone at the moment. Will have to consider glass options there.

    John Layton answered my questions about choice of film developer and edge effects for apparent sharpness. Like others I believe the image has to be good before getting lost in the details. It’s all about good technique and process. Now I’m motivated to find my contact printing paper and get to printing.
