hey bere! pictures gettin thru the hard (ie cheap) way. film - lately ilford xp2 400 for the bnw's and portra vc 400 for color- developed to negatives only (local place is 2x the develop charge for addl contact sheet) and then scanned in an epson scanner - which has some pretty frustrating software and offers a deal with the devil - either 20 minutes a neg to de-dust it using ICE, or i spend 20 minutes doing it myself. i'm add enough to give it a half-assed attemt usually, rather than watch a blue bar ooze two inches in half an hour. aaaaaagh i cant believe how dusty this place is!!

oh i see!
ilford materials are grand! when i did (long ago) some bnw printed, their papers were my favorites
yes! scanners & their interfaces s*ck! one would think that hooking up to photoshop would be easier/interesting... although your work is going trough so many 'filters' good to see you handle them so well, the texture/feeling of the film prevails! hang-in there & have fun with the blue bar, ha! & yes... i believe it can be dusty there
so, the guard was out that night? heh heh
