    Re: The art of printmaking

    I would suggest that the best course for you, once the techniques are "under your fingers", is simply to make a lot of prints. You will eventually learn what to pull out of your bag of tricks in a...

    Re: Metering Technique...any problems here?

    Drew, I think it depends on things like what developer you use and how you "rate" the film. For me, placing shadows on Zone III and using box speed ISO results in anemic density there that is hard to...

    Re: Metering Technique...any problems here?

    Agreed with the above that the middle tones and highlights will pretty much take care of themselves if the exposure is set correctly for the shadow areas, if one is using modern film (e.g. Ilford,...

    Re: Anyone use a hat?

    Yes. Most lenses have image circles far larger than the film area. All that extra image circle is illuminating the inside of your camera and bellows and fogging your shadows. Even if it's cloudy. You...
  9. Re: Super Chromega D Lamphouse Dichroic grade filter questions

    The idea is that you can vary the contrast by using only Y or M but the exposure to keep middle gray the same will change. So I always use the two-filter method, using the values that Ilford provides...
