  7. Re: About Joe Cornish and the scope of the Large Format Photography Forum

    That would be quite a feat.. I wonder how large a hand print could go, I have made 24 x36inch gum over palladiums , I do not want to ever go larger than that.

    Me too, I have not made a digital exposure in my life other than my Iphone happy snaps. I prefer the physicality of film, and using it.
