Am back at work tonight. I had a good off week of printing. I ended up completed the first process steps on 4 different negatives. I will move onto the secondary process in the coming days after my 12 hour security night shifts.
One strange thing about this weeks printing the 35mm Neva were so much easier and gunner to work with. I love the look of grain and contrast you get when you make a 35mm negative into a 20x24 inch print. Bleaching also looks and works do much better.

This same photog told me once that photography was a "SIDE EFFECT" for him. Possibly a way to rationalize his limited success as an artist and his general lack of excitement and creativity. If you claim something is not that important to you, then when you fail at it, it seems like less of a big deal (just a hobby after all!). Best to not take advice from the side effect photographers/artists and instead rely on your own judgement. Passion and hard work always wins in the end, trust your own instincts folks. If you think your right, do it your way, it is probably the best way to go!
