I find that I use everything learned in the dark room for my digital prints and digital negatives. It is so much easer now than in a dark room but the lesson learned are important  I am now back in the darkroom making Orotone glass plates but using digital negatives to enlarge on to the plates. Most all that I have done in the last few years has been digital capture and creation of digital negatives for printing. For three color gum separations, I hate think of the work and time it takes with film.


I do still shoot film but more so just for the use of a view camera and that it take more thought and time. What an exciting time to have the best of the new technology and the historical processes to create the art.
