  1. Re: Hack my roadmap towards 12x20 platinum/palladium contact prints (long)

    How would one go about testing the lp/mm of a printing method paper combination?



    Thank you, I'll check them out!
  2. Re: Hack my roadmap towards 12x20 platinum/palladium contact prints (long)

    One of the main reasons would be to avoid Photoshop and the digital path. I've always done a hybrid process with film, even before digital cameras were affordable. Shooting film, developing myself,...
  3. Re: Hack my roadmap towards 12x20 platinum/palladium contact prints (long)

    Thank you so much for the reasoned and reasonable suggestions!

    I think it would make most sense to start out with my current 4x5 camera for learning pt/pd contact printing, and perhaps get the...
  4. Hack my roadmap towards 12x20 platinum/palladium contact prints (long)

    I've been shooting 4x5" for a few years and enjoy it quite a bit, along with some 6x6 and lot of digital small formats. I develop the chromes myself (tediously) with a hand agitated Jobo tank which...

    Re: How to test the lpi of cyanotype printing?

    Wow, wasn't expecting it to be nearly that high!

    I'll probably just do some prints of my photographs and make contact prints that way. I've never shot negatives, so would have to invest in...

    How to test the lpi of cyanotype printing?

    I attended a workshop for cyanotype printing, and was very surprised how simple it is. I was expecting volatile solutions, breathing masks, and guesswork of a result at over 50% failure rate. Looks...
  7. Re: Developing 4x5 slide film livestream LIVE NOW

    Yeah, I've done some photo editing on Twitch as well. I had a casting shoot (in digital) on Twitch, but they auto-deleted it after two weeks :(
  12. Re: Developing 4x5 slide film livestream LIVE NOW

    Thanks! Just finished the first batch, at least 5 to go. It's going to be a long stream, but that's expected from LF :)
  13. Developing 4x5 slide film livestream LIVE NOW

    Not sure where to put this, but I'm livestreaming developing 38 frames of 4x5 film starting right now on Twitch Creative. I'll first mix chemicals and get temps settled, so this'll be a long...

    My KS package arrived! Just in time as I have a studio shoot next weekend.

    I'll try out something all the cool kids are doing: unboxing. And since I like to live on the edge, I'll do it live.

    The only ways to encourage and fix things is to buy the things, and spread the word.

    I'm hoping to get my first batch before my studio shoot in three weeks.

    Re: new55 kickstarter has begun

    If it's within specifications, they will end up with the bill. Even if it's not, New55 will likely have to eat up a good chunk of the cost, depending on the contract. Let's hope it's an easier fix!

    Yes, looking at per-shot basis, but we should be looking at a whole shoot. Then it's not cheaper, at least not for me.
