    Re: Minimal Agitation article published

    I have only tried tray processing once for the EMA technique, whether it failed because the negative floated to the surface of the developer in the dark, is unknowable, I never tried a tray process...

  5. Re: High SBR: Comparing D-23 1:1 vs. Pyrocat-HD EMA

    I believe Pyro based developers are superior to all other developers, particularly when silver printing is the end goal, with PyroCat being slightly superior to PMK.

    Technique has become very intuitive for me. Simply adding more Green exposure in the printing formula goes directly at reducing mid-tone...

    Serious photography is many things to many photographers, therefore much of what happens on these forums is of little consequence.

  9. Re: High SBR: Comparing D-23 1:1 vs. Pyrocat-HD EMA

    It's nice to see others pursuing a Minimal Agitation form of film processing. Since 2003 this type of film processing is the only manner in which I have processed my sheet film. So, I believe I can...

    Re: Freezing Silver Gelatin Paper?

    I agree using a zip lock or plastic sealed top container is best to freeze paper for long periods of time. You will also find that the warmer emulsions, i.e. those with a chloride component to the...

    Steve,

    In the interest of smoothing things out and steering this thread toward a more objective tone, I'm requesting that we bury the hatchet and re-evaluate; both of us. The last thing I want to...
