  2. Correction filters for Tungsten lights

    I've always used an 80A filter with household bulbs, usually 150W halogens, with excellent results. They tend to burn hotter than normal bulbs, which I think will still be slightly warm even with...

    Pin hole for 4x5

    I used a sewing needle to poke the hole in some .003" brass, and a 25 gauge syringe needle (.5mm) to size the hole. It's an almost perfect 150mm, F/300 lens for 4x5.

    A question of ethics.

    If you want to do Pittsburgh, do it quick before the local politicians rip down all the old buildings to put up city-financed over priced department stores.

    How much to push/pull

    I think the E6 process does not allow this kind of flexibility. Most of these ideas are strictly for b&w film (Zone System N+1, N-2 etc). They're not push/pull in the normal sense (ie a whole...
