Well, I am holding the first draft of my manual! It's beautiful!

I had planned on sending it out this Friday, but I have a chance to make some changes before I commit to that. So it will be a few days later than I anticipated (but well worth it).

Here's my request: I am looking for high res photos of plates dealing with TROUBLESHOOTING in the process. I am looking for good visual examples the following:

Comets
Pinholes
Sweeps, Burns, Islands
Fogging/Veiling
Varnishing issues (ridges, holes)
Underexposure/Overexposure (pos and negs)
Ridges, Lines
Short Pours
Hesitation Marks (silver immersion)

If you have any that you would be willing to let me use for a credit and a thank you, let me know.

P.S.
The manual has been a labor of love and not profitable at all. I made it mostly for my MFA and for personal satisfaction. Printing costs alone will take years to recoup, not to mention my time. That's why I can't offer money for use of photos. I hope you can understand.

Regards,
Quinn Jacobson

Quinn. I think I can offer some of those (unfortunely). Can we just e-mail
them to you?
Also, how much will the manual cost? I'm very interested.

Thanks

Hi Mark,

Yes, that will work fine. Thanks.

The manual is offered on altphotosource.com under "literature"

Cheers,
