    Thank you. its a long discussion, but basically its light (use of fill , never have harsh side lights to accentuate pores) + lens (some are hazy, some are actually soft, some i just got to play with apperture) + fact that X-ray is way softer than your typical film (annoys some people, but it works fine for what i use it for). Then if i see something i absolutely must dodge/burn or throw texture screen at - i will do it.

    salt print 8x10, still damp so i took a crappy phone picture of it, it actually turned out pretty good.

    Yes Brian it did dry a bit darker. My flash went off when I took this that another reason it looks lighter than it actually is

    Fabulous shot, as always, Sergei.
