    Re: Late August 2019 Portraits.

    Thank you!
    D-76 1:1 3min at 20 degrees. It should be another developer but it is not specified in the soviet box, it was a trial-error from another stock from which I had references.

    Re: Portraits July 2019

    Indeed they are different, you are right in your appreciation, at least this dry plate.
    So far wet plate is out of the question to me, no space and place to do it correctly.
    Your plates are awesome!
