    It was 11X14 1-1 Macro still life and that's what my meter told me to do. 610 mm Nikor stopped way down. Maybe all the way. It was years ago and I lose notes.

    Be serious, there's a reason photo studios exist and why artificial lights exist.
    Do you shoot wetplate? Do you realize in 1860 photo studios were basically a room with a big skylight. Talk is cheap....shoot some and get back to me and we'll talk.

    Why are so many people who shoot wet plate arrogant jerks who assume that not one else actually shoots?

    Yes, I actually shoot wet plate. I will admit that I can only afford to do it one day a week at this point, but that still means I'm making a couple dozen plates a month. I also realize that daylight studios exist. I don't happen to own one. Nor, in this part of Ohio, would it be a guaranteed success as we have full sun just 67 days a year. High overcast would be fine as well but unfortunately we have a ton of days where the direct sunlight (well, through the clouds, I just mean not in the shade) exposure has gone as long as 45 seconds at f/2.8 for me. That's crap for shooting people.

    Having a bad day, sorry. But don't like people telling me to 'be serious', when I was being serious. It was offensive, so I came back at him.
