    Re: Pushing 8x10 sheet film?

    If the subjects are moving, isn't focus a really tricky issue with 8x10? Or can you get the subjects to only move exactly in the plane of sharp focus? If so, teach me your trick

    Hehe :-) There is no trick - the subjects are moving along the focus plane :-)

Anyway, that made me think that Portra 400 could be pushed just as many stops? I wish I could do something with the lightning situation but I cant, and the subjects are moving... so I dont see that many other options. So if anyone did push with a certain degree of success Id like to know. As its mentioned above its the same as pushing smaller formats but I would be interested in opinions and tips anyway. I suppose the grain part is not as relevant with 8x10 :-)
    So one thing to think about-you need to think about final his and your product. He is scanning his film and presumably optimizing his images there. If you are printing traditionally you probably won't be able to match his results.
