    For me LF purity means that I utilize visible light and/or (when lights are off) liquid chemistry for the entire process. Helps keep me honest.

    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    The purity of knowing that when going into the darkroom something is being created.

    IMHO LF Purity can be seen from several points of view, and it's also something very personal.

    ...but an artist comes to my mind when thinking in LF purity, Sally Mann. Departing from raw chem and glass sheets and ending in the most impressive silver prints many have seen on a wall.

    Fortunately we have many masters of the past that were also masters of their tools and reached impressive artistic levels. Purity is something we can have inside, and it can be learned from masters.


    IMHO this not about printing in the darkroom or hybrid, to me it's more a mental state. A full optic workflow with no digitalization is not better or worse, but I find that image handcrafting helps reaching that mental state, just a personal opinion.
