    fantastic treatment!!!! super portrait.

  • James Wiley

    James Wiley said (8 Jan 2013):

    By treatment, I assume you mean by computer but I don't use computer treatment on my images Shirley. The only 'treatment' is old school. I use high speed film, develop in ultra black developer and print with a high contrast grade 5 filter on multicontrast paper. The only computert treatment is spotting.
