    Did you find filters yet, John? I ran into my ole stash of 77mm glass Tiffens, incl #12 yellow, all in fine shape. You'd just need a step ring and your Stetson cowboy hat for a shade, with the XX's on the hat matched to the filter factor, as usual. If you want them just PM me your address. Free. But you might get a surplus porch cat in the package too!

    I'd have to pass on the porch cat---I'm allergic. PM on the way
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Back in the 1970s, I was at RIT. One of my teachers (George DeWolf comes to mind but I don't think it was him) taught a double exposure technique. Part of the total exposure was made without a filter, and the other part of the exposure was made with a Wratten 25 filter. Self cocking shutter almost a necessity. You'd think that you'd get some blurs or double imaging from movement of the subject (wind) between the two exposures, but in practice just never seemed to be the case. Computing the two exposures was a pain, though final image results seemed always to be ideal and worth the exposure computations. Just passing this technique on....

    So what? Use a #12? #15? What do you recommend?

    I regularly use my Kodak K-1, K-2 and K-3 glass/gel filters, but then my soprano sax was made in 1928, too.

    Cool! My Buescher Alto is a 1926.

    I can vouch for the yellow + polariser giving a negative the resembles fairly reasonably what you see.

    I have been using it off and on for a couple of years, after Ken suggested it on this forum.
