    Re: Is this Bromide Drag? Help!

    Nobody is suggesting you not try "creative" variations of process. But the fact is that 90% of those who try the technique eventually find it only introduces undesirable effects, and you often end up...

    Re: Old Collodion Com wetplate site return

    Garrett,
    I can only speak to my own experience, having joined the forum in the Fall of 2018. In my short time with Quinn's forum, I never saw activity on that level, and weeks often passed between...

    Re: post your trees!

    Thank you very much. Its a bit atypical for me to present an image with such soft contrast as this, but I like the evocative nature of the result.
  17. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    The last package of Xtol I made up was difficult to dissolve, and had to be filtered to get the leftover crap out of. It also went bad after 6 weeks in 1 liter brown glass bottles, full to the top.

    The Marys River is still at its seasonal low flow, so things move quite slowly in the river these days. So yes, the water was quite still when I made this photograph. Glad you like it, thanks!
