    I was shooting LF so no meter in the camera of course. Was using an incident light meter. I think what was tripping me up was I wasn't sure that lowering ISO 400 to 200 as increasing exposure. Now...

    Probable Goof

    Was shooting TMax ISO 400 today and put a yellow filter on my lens. Realizing that would darken my exposure -1 stop I decided to adjust ISO on my meter to compensate. I think of exposure in terms...

    Have been there and was impressed. Very difficult walking though! Mesa Verde is my main "target" in CO on this trip. We've covered most of the northern 2/3 of the state already.

    Re: How to imitate the contrast of wet plate

    Wet plate has about five stops of dynamic range. Another thing is it's only sensitive to blue light.

    Interesting info. I have three early Voightlanders, 1847, 1862, 1865. I generally use them stopped down a bit. Often f8. That should negate the shift on the 1847 lens?
