    Re: Nude

    Re: 8x10 film processing

    If you can find them, I've used Jobo, and Unicolor print drums and motor bases for years with excellent results. I don't even pre-rinse. Just reduce standard time by 15%.

    Re: Nude

    I've been following Liv's work lately; she is unique. Especially love how her freckles are exaggerated by the orthochromatic nature of the emulsion.

    Poll: Re: 3. Would you yourself pose nude?

    Yes, though no one has ever asked. If I ask others to pose for me, I should avail myself to others.

    Stunning piece, beautiful range. The tilt to empower the foreground (which compliment the models midtone shapes and softens them), adds greatly to the entire image. Very nice.
