Pam and the list, I'm in much the same boat. I'm a software person who loves photography but really is not interested in the darkroom. Especially with film. I have done a small amount of platinum printing. I've got a copy of Dan Burkholder's book and just ordered an Epson 1200 (I think I may return it though and wait 'till March for a 1270). I would like to do my fine tuning in Photoshop instead and then make prints. I'm somewhat interested in permanence too because as a new father, I have the grandparents constantly barraging me with requests for color prints! In summary, my two main interests are: 1. Nice color prints for friends and family. 2. Very nice negatives for platinum (or other alternative process) printing. I have an Olympus C-2020 I'm planning on using. I'm very impressed with the quality of the pictures as they show up on a monitor. Haven't yet figured out how to get good prints. Have you actually done any prints off of Epson created negatives? I'd love to converse with other interested parties on the subject (if it's too off topic, we can take it offline). Thanks. -r ...clipping from Palms earlier email: Actually I'm not looking for an authority here, not trying to certify prints for sale, this is a big experiment for me. I've decided to use the B&W inkjet output as intermediate negatives for contact printing onto platinum or other photographic emulsion for permanance. However, at some point, perhaps when I can afford a higher resolution digicam, back and/or scanner, I would like to at least consider the inkjet output as the end product. Also, since this is an experiment, who knows where it will go, maybe someone will want to buy a print. However, the idea is to leverage knowledge. Right now it appears that we're all on the bleeding edge, more so than I had thought when starting this odyssey, which is exciting, but prone to failure. Pam -- Pamela G.
