    Well, it's not the difficulty or danger holding me back, it's finding a decent intaglio press that isn't several thousand dollars.

    Re: post alternative techniques

    I don't understand the controversy. Why someone visits this site is based on what he/she expects to find. If I shop at a bicycle store I don't expect to get advice on a motorized bike for racing at Tour de France. If I visit APUG, I expect to find discussions on traditional photographic methods; not on how only the end result matters. For the Alt Photo forum, I don't expect to find discussions on how Corel Painter can emulate all processes. If I visit B&S forum on Carbon printing, hope to not find discussions on carbon inkjet printing. So why should I visit this site and expect to find discussions on replacing my Large Format cameras with some other format? Even though Photo.net is a one size fits all photo site, they have categories; and one does not find discussions of sensor size in the neg development section.
    I hope the LF forum remains Large Format, its what I would expect to find here.

    The 'controversy' is the pain of sorts it is to artists (not a dirty word!) who are forced to split their work - and by extension, themselves - to post on one forum or another. Like many contemporary photographers, my work weaves through many materials and many formats. I've pretty much given up trying to post images anywhere but my own site, and, as most of us know, that can be a pretty lonely way to go

    I completely understand the need for a website to have an identity. The world is homogeneous enough already. But, every serious photography site should have a forum (such as 'On Photography') that encompasses the whole of our increasingly marvelous craft.

    I am away from home and can not do so, but could someone please post another image before this thread loses its interest?

    I don't know whether it will loose interest, as I find the discussion important.

    But - I surely hope the people involved in the discussion will continue to post images.

    here is one.

    Thanks Denise,

    I think we are kindred souls so I am not surprised that you understand. And I appreciate your comments.

    BTW, your site is fabulous, as I may have already mentioned in the past. I would like to do something similar for carbon transfer printing but just starting out to make something like this seems overwhelming.
