Here I'm fooling around with direct 4-color process, translation of a straight photograph. In this case, the photo was taken through the viewfinder of my Duaflex IV. I'm trying to get my custom CMYK colors right (which I haven't) and pushing how far I can go with halftone size. I've read that 55 lines-per-inch is the limit of the 280 mesh I'm using. I've also heard 80 lines. Here I've used 70 without a problem. You have to look pretty closely to notice the dot pattern. Maybe next time I'll try 80 for a higher level of detail.
