Turn the paper 45 degrees on the enlarger table so the image falls on the diagonals rather than the edges and either: (a) cut the mat window rotated 45 degrees to the usual axis, or (b) mount it square in a square frame and hang it from a corner! That will drive a few visiting Aunts nuts as they try to make it hang square on the wall. Another alternative is to simply make round prints. Know of one individual here who has a hyperfocal hand held 8x10 with a 90mm lens - 3 ft to infinity at f/16 and it weighs less than 5 pounds. Nothing like large format point and shoot :-) The corner hanging method has a certain economy, you only need one thumb tack or staple. One needs to restrict bug hunting to the 1/4 inch crown staple guns. The big pneumatic ones firing 1/2 or 5/8 inch by 2 inch staples are just not sporting. Sort of like using a H&H .600 nitro express on a mouse. ============================================================================================================= To unsubscribe from this list, go to www.freelists.org and logon to your account (the same e-mail address and password you set-up when you subscribed,) and unsubscribe from there.
