    Certainly a high key image can be made. It has to do with shadows and colors. Reds will be black, oranges dark gray, etc. A rim lit nude against a white background would be a great subject for a high key image. I have everything I need to make this image, except the subject.

    Here is a portion of a recent high key test with CSG. I hope since I don't usually put images in here.

    In my case, my work is in general getting lower and lower keyed, however, the material isn't dictating that. My negatives are looking really nice, by my usual standards. One of the things I have noticed about the stuff is that high toned things are rendered really nicely, and shadows can be very open, too, which leaves a lot of room for interpretation. The only real difference, in my case, is that I'm developing to quite a higher contrast than I would use for silver printing, but that's my intention, for the type of scanning I do, and the carbon printing I intend to try in the future.
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    Michael, can you explain your method of development?
    Generalizations are made because they are Generally true...

    D23, 1:6.
    10 minutes, room temp, agitation every two minutes, in hangers in tanks.

    I save and reuse the developer for maybe five or six weeks.
