  1. Re: How can I construct an inexpensive accent-light holder?

    Thank you. Graeme. As indicated in my original post, I will use the flashlights for accent lights in interiors, so the porch light will be for other occasions. I am not in any way a fan of Avedon,...
  2. Re: How can I construct an inexpensive accent-light holder?

    Well, I am a fan of gaffers' tape, but I will have to chalk up to my lack of mechanical prowess my long experience with tape of any such kind, that items awkwardly taped, such as a flashlight on a...
  3. Re: The Wratten Mystery, or, What's My Factor?

    Thank you, gentlemen both. Yes, I know that filters fade. These have been well kept and handled, and while they may not be full-intensity, they look close by eye and, as I indicated, the negatives...

    Lovely, Peter.
  5. How can I construct an inexpensive accent-light holder?

    Some of the small, inexpensive LED flashlights have gotten sufficiently powerful that I have ordered a couple to use as accent lights in interior location portraiture. They can be focused from flood...
  6. The Wratten Mystery, or, What's My Factor?

    This is one probably of the older-timers.

    Having recently purchased a set of Wratten gels, I took the #38 blue out to see what it might do for our clematis. I gave it a factor of 2 just looking by...

    I was not aware of Greg Heisler until fairly recently, though I had seen some of his portraits. I had long ago seen this book at a store and scanned some of it briefly, but put it down without much...

    Re: How to learn a type of film?

    I would second Oren's questions. While it is true that structure (grain, etc.) is not the issue in LF that it can be in smaller formats (assuming, at least, prints of moderate magnification, and 4x5...

    Re: Exposure compensation for small apertures

    I just looked this up. Unless I am reading wrong, the film receives extra exposure when the lens is stopped down, because the shutter blades have, upon partial opening, already uncovered the totality...

    Kumar, that's quite an apparatus, a testament to the extensive thoughtfulness that went into professional design in an economy that valued industrial quality and innovation.

    Hey, folks, I just OCR'd my PDF of the complete Zone VI newsletters and found Fred P's complete description. It in Dec. 1977. If anyone's interested, I'll transcribe it.
