    Re: Nude

    Isn't it amusing how riled up people get when their evolutionary buttons are pushed? Another fine portrait, Deardorffuser!

    Re: What Happened to Dry Mounting Prints?

    I think it was Bienfang, but I bought it a long time ago now. I probably did buy it from Light Impressions. I generally go a decade between getting a group of prints that I want to drymount and...

    Re: What Happened to Dry Mounting Prints?

    Dry mounted prints simply look better over time. The mounting board becomes part of the piece. Sure, mount boards can become damaged, but so can unmounted prints.

    Re: 8x10 film processing

    I don't see why not. I regularly process 4x5 in a tank that goes up to 5x7.

    Re: 8x10 film processing

    The Expert tanks are expensive because they complicated, the tubes inside are bowed to allow solution to get to the back of the negatives, and because only a small number are sold. Consider, though,...

    Re: Is folding a Toyo difficult?

    The bellows are flexible. That's good for movements, but it means that the folds can become inverted fairly easily, and if the front standard isn't move all the way back to the rear standard, the...

    Re: Is folding a Toyo difficult?

    No, but you have to check that the bellows are positioned properly before closing the camera. It takes a second or two to do.

    Take the two black plastic circles off the top of the unit. Use a quarter or a screw driver to turn the valves. I do this when I shot off the Intellifaucet and the water doesn't stop. Turn the...

    Re: 8x10 film processing

    Start with trays, as Bryan says. It's cheap and can give great results. Regarding BTZS tubes, I liked them for 4x5, but I didn't as much for 8x10. At least my DIY versions weren't much fun to use,...

    The swag-less connectors mentioned above just arrived. They fit on the carriage side of the cable, but the holes are too small for the hooks in the weight. I'll have to add a connector. The...

    Good tips. I plan on using a scrap piece of steel instead of my anvil.

    How do these look?...
