  1. Re: Is it worth it to buy this Beseler enlarger?

    Single lens or a turret?

    If you have one or more top quality lenses on it that can really affect the value proposition.
  2. Re: Using VC Filters in Super Chromega E Dichroic II

    I'm in the "just use the dichroic head" camp. I often use two or three grades in a single print. I have the settings for all the grades from 0 to 4-1/2 printed out (in a large font) on a sheet of...

    Re: Filters for B&W

    The way I think about filters, which I think Doremus was getting at, is in terms of adjusting (usually accentuating) contrast to make something stand out.

    For instance, if I want the clouds (if...

    Re: Lens Filters for 4x5

    Indeed it is expensive. I had the old square one and used it for years until it fell apart. When I asked for a replacement,
    they basically told me too bad, buy a new one. Nice!

    Re: Using slide-in filters mounted on lens

    I have no special knowledge in this area but I don't buy it. Modern lenses at least are very robustly engineered, and the weight of a filter and lens hood isn't going to affect it at all. Although if...

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    Very nice, David.

    Those are hemlock trees, are they not? Around here most of the hemlocks are under attack from the wooly adelgid (Adelges tsuga) and are in decline, which
    is a great shame.

    Re: Citric and acetic acid as stop (bath)

    Agree with Doremus, citric acid should be discarded at the end of the session (but it is good for quite a few sheets of film or paper).
