  4. Re: Some tests rank-ordering a variety of classic and modern LF lenses

    You have obviously put a great deal of effort into this and I applaud that. For portraiture I have done something similar with my lenses, this for babies, this for 20 somethings, this for 40...
  5. Re: Some tests rank-ordering a variety of classic and modern LF lenses

    Well I wondered the same thing. You mentioned in passing Resolution, Sharpness and Contrast and rank them by Performance (and goodness); so I also wondered if and how you measured your grades of...

  9. Re: Rodenstock Imagon 22cm/4 Kunstler Portratobjektiv

    Dr. Heinrich Kühn invented the concept of the Imagon. Dr. Franz Staeble was the lens designer. "Kunstler Portratobjektiv" would mean Art Portrait Lens.

  13. Re: Fresnel screen focus distance is different from ground glass

    Won't the GG be allowed to fall forward to the position where the Fresnel is presently? And be a few mm closer to the lens position? Or is the lens held in position even if the space the present...
  14. Re: Fresnel screen focus distance is different from ground glass

    In any case after you have made your modifications check for sure with real film.
  15. Re: Fresnel screen focus distance is different from ground glass

    I suggest you arrange a yard stick or metre stick up on a 45 degree angle fairly close to your camera and at a wide open f stop focus first one option and then the other. Develop and see your...
  16. Re: Adobe is going to only sell subscription based Photoshop

  19. Re: Adobe is going to only sell subscription based Photoshop

    I think the issue is that there is an issue with the availability of a de facto world wide resource for photography being dependant on one countries political/judicial system.

    Re: Aspect ratio of 10x8 and 5x4?

    How does one know the height of the film or paper until after you take the picture in portrait or landscape view? wouldn't a box of unexposed film have a mixture of 8x10 and 10x8.

  28. Re: Greta Thunberg wet plate photos by Shane Balkowitsch

    looking at the image of the image in colour, I am wondering if the scan of the wet plate wasn't lightened in reproduction.
  29. Re: Greta Thunberg wet plate photos by Shane Balkowitsch

    I can see what willie means. the flattened face has few shadows and lacks 3 dimensionality. It's possible that a bit more (or less?) exposure, that is a bit darker, might have more shadows on the...

    Re: Ilford multigrade contrast differences?

    Yes fibre glossy comes out quite nicely if you do not ferrotype it.
    And I use these and also think the RC is more contrasty, but then it's glossy. It is also a different speed.

    Threaded holes work well for me, with the added security of a nut screwed on from behind if the length of the bolt allows.
