Infrared etc - negs and prints

Having now made a few prints from my recent infrared and stenopé negative I have put a few scanned prints next to some of the negative scans. This has means the gallery has been renamed slightly.

The exercise raises the question of whether it is worth making silver gelatine prints when the digital images can be manipulated (improved?) in the computer and printed with a reasonable inkjet printer.

I do not think the computer can match a (good) lith print although one can make a sort of imitation lith effect by digital manipulation. The chemical route here is more interesting because of the variety of results possible given the many variables involved.

As for straightforward black and white prints I am less sure ...
