    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    That looks like perfect landscape weather conditions, Martin :); I hope you get some nice prints from this one.

    Re: More 510-Pyro Adventures!

    No worries, the only reason it’s on my radar is a “prepping” scenario in case all flavors of Pyrocat become unavailable during the Zombie Apocalypse.;). Otherwise I’ll look forward to following your...

    Re: More 510-Pyro Adventures!

    Eric, that reminds me: what’s your dilution for 510 when you’re developing for your salt prints? I get the impression that 510 is roughly twice as energetic as Pyrocat HD—would 1:1:100 be in the...

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    Jnantz—I trust no census takers were harmed during/through the process.;). At any rate evocative results—no doubt beyond my technical abilities, but I’d be interested in the basic details.
  6. Re: CatLABS X FILM 80 MKII now available in 8X10

    Ha, Tennyson maintained he knew the metrical weight of every word in the English language except “scissors”—that’s right up there. At any rate I hope to see how you deal with the HP5 kallitypes.

    Re: Need Sound Tripod Advice

    I might throw Induro sticks into the mix—I’ve got a 3-series that’s been burly enough to handle my Sinar Norma 8x10, though the 4 and 5 series (usually available used/refurbished here in the States...

    Re: Lenses for Horseman 45FA

    The Sironar-N will definitely fold up in the camera, as, IIRC, does the 150/9 G-Claron. Another option you might explore if space is at a premium is to mount the lens backwards for transport--I'd...

    Excellent, thanks for elaborating--that seems rather the elegant solution, and it occurs to me that slipping in a rubylith mask might help keep things registered as well.
