Re: P.O.P and diginegs and babies

Hi Chris,

This certainly is wierd. You say 'Lela' and I say 'Lilly'. Crazy. and I'm surrounded by girls now.

 Thanks for the advice. I think I will have to process in the wild so the sulphite is a must.

I've just been reading you on Argyrotype and now I'm wondering which to use, POP or Ag.

Any thoughts?

Grace. She's little enough to bathe in my alt process trays! JUST KIDDING,

Yes to Polaroid 55 film successfully in a pinhole camera--it was in a
Polaroid 545i holder in both a 4x5 box pinhole and a 4x5 springback pinhole
camera. Watch reciprocity, though. I use Polaroid to test exposure all the
time in those cameras, mostly the color film type 59, though.

Bring sodium sulfite with you in the field--you can plop a couple
tablespoons in a ziploc baggie and add a cup of water, if you want to clear
them in the field.
