Week 23 – My 4×5 solution is homemade

I went home again just before Father’s Day, to convene with said father and solve my 4×5 issues once and for all – in other words, make it to where I wouldn’t feel quite so frustrated.  I was armed with my own loupe, plenty of Tri-X, and his idea that DK-50 was the answer, and…

Week 25: Low light Black and White
