Iam learning how to produce internegatives for alternative processes for gum dichromate, cyanotype etc. Sheet film is sometimes difficult to get plus, I think that we have to accept that digital has come of age and as traditional silver printers we have to master the new processes if we are to continue. The negative is a means to an end after all.
Dan Burkholder's book is part of the journey. His explanations for producing the negatives are important for the real understanding of the craft. Once mastered you will be able to go on to greater things.
I am glad that I bought this book.
