    #3 -- alt processes...got one exposed and ready to process (carbon).

    And I got some 7.5x10 New "Azo" coming soon that will also be used for both old and new 5x7 work.

    I scan them and make prints off my Epson 3800, or I make digital negatives and print them in Platinum. Occasionally I make straight 5x7 platinums too.

    Contact prints, usually Azo, occasionally albumen. I think of the Press Graflex as my snapshot camera--

    "All of the above, and more" is what I would have ticked. So I just voted "enlarge".

    and the option "feed them to the dogs".
    I dropped 5x7" because it was only a very limited used format inbetween 4x5" and 8x10"... with all respect to the users of 5x7". There are certainly many personal reasons to use it.

    Before I let it go, I contact printed the negs.

    alt process contact printing. In contrast to Geert have just recently taken it up as 4x5 is just too small for my eye as a contact and the jump to 8x10 seems too big
