Thus the shots, which stayed up close throughout, reveal not the grain of film emulsion but a halftone screen, evoking Richard Prince's rephotography or Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin's static shots of newspapers, magazines, and publicity stills in Letter to Jane (1972).
If the halftone screen that we are developing rapidly changes its shape through the grayscale, we can increase the number of discrete gray levels in this 2D simulation model in the course of experimenting.
Other experiments were conducted, but it was Louis and Max Levy who finally perfected a commercially viable halftone screen and patented their process and the machine for manufacturing such screens in 1893.
Digitally, an image pixel larger than a corresponding halftone screen pixel is printed as a one (turned on, or darkened) and an image pixel smaller than the screen pixel is printed as a zero (left white).
If the halftone screen in the course of experiment rapidly changes its shape through the grayscale, the number of discrete gray levels in this 2D simulation model may be increased.

The judges will ask themselves a number of technical questions, depending on the process, the substrate, the fineness of the lines, the size of the typeface and the fineness of the halftone screens used, etc.
Since a finished printed image generally consists of the overprint of the four halftone screens, it is very difficult to isolate each of the various components affecting the reproduction of the original image.
A printer using conventional 150 lpi halftone screens who converts to 20-[micro] stochastic screening will encounter a significant overall improvement in apparent image resolution.
