I’m not often in the position to donate to worthy causes – but this is one that I felt strongly enough about to donate $45. And you know it’s a good deal because you get to do an 11 x 14 fiber silver print. I really want DSI to live long and prosper and to be able to make large silver prints because that’s what designers often want. So if DSI can afford to purchase this large (to me it’s a black box) that can do extremely large true silver gelatin prints – I can only say, wow that would be great and I’d be able to offer those prints to designers and hopefully one day museums.
Here’s the link to the Kickstart Campaign for the super large silver gelatin machine (as I call it). For me this is the best of all worlds. I’m able to make corrections once, in Photoshop or your post processor of choice – and then do your prints on true Ilford Silver Gelatin paper. I’ve seen the prints, and they’re better than I could do with straight darkroom techniques.
I’m also starting to change my site so that I can also offer Silver prints in addition to the Ultrachrome prints (which are good but just aren’t silver fiber which is still the standard).
