My photographer--Doug Yaple, Seattle, WA.-- achieves a very nice graduated effect on my slides that is quite dramatic w/out interfering w/ the work. He uses a non gradated grey paper that is curved up from the horizontal to the vertical. The gradation comes from this bend and the depth of field rather than an intrinsic quality to the paper.

Hi Andy. I heard from two here on Orchid how wonderful your new work
is and your reply about the graduated paper your photographer uses
again reminds me of it so . . . . . now I just have to ask if there
is a website or publication where we could see some pictures of your
The last time I saw (then) current work was several years ago in
Yuma and during the Seattle SNAG convention. I enjoy seeing your
pieces and would love to catch up.
