    Re: Lupex Paper

    I think Tim was just out to show how prints can look different using different materials for his viewers. That said, the comparison to me isn't that helpful for learning about material differences as...

    Re: Lupex Paper

    Honored one of my images is anywhere near a Carnie wall! That image is Ilford Warmtone + LPD. The LPD does cool down Ilford WT a bit. But that said, I find all of Ilford's warm tone papers on the...

    Re: Lupex Paper

    I haven't used Lupex yet. But with respects to Lodima, I have used Amidol and Formulary's 120 (Ansco 120). Amidol produces a warmer image to my eyes. There may also be a touch more dmax with Amidol....

    Re: C-41 Recommendations?

    Freestyle sells a Fuji branded 5L C41 kit. It's more expensive but I like that it comes with separate bleach and fix steps (as opposed to Blix). Read some long threads on Photrio at some point and...

    +1 on the Saunders LPL 4500/4550 enlargers. A VCCE head would be great but a color head would work fine too. An Omega D5 enlarger would be super too. I believe they are easier to find than the...

    Re: Color contact printing

    I usually expose an 8x10 print around 6-10 seconds in total. That means about 2-3 seconds per test strip (say 4-5 strips on an 8x10). You don't want to go under around 3 seconds total exposure time...

  14. Re: Anyone Made RA-4 Color Prints From Ektar Negatives?

    I print RA4 primarily with Portra films. When I have tried Ektar, I found it challenging to color correct. It was quite sensitive in the green/magenta, sometimes requiring under 1 point corrections...

  16. Re: Advice on how to get correct E6/C41 temperature on Jobo CPP3?

    I never put hotter water in the Jobo than my target processing temperature. You can hear the cold water inlet activating when you do and believe that caused some pump issues with my CPP3 which...
  17. Re: What color negative/transparency would you recommend for night photography?

    To the OP, I would suggest staying away from slower speed films as you embark on the project. That cuts out the whole Ektar debate here as a moot point. And I would recommend against pushing or...
  18. Re: What color negative/transparency would you recommend for night photography?

    I've printed Ektar in the darkroom and I find it a difficult film to color correct. It tends towards the magenta side and I found the need for making under 1 point corrections in magenta/green which...

  20. Re: What color negative/transparency would you recommend for night photography?

    In my experience Portra 400 images are warmer than 160--I've diffed color corrected prints next to one another. There's clearly more color in 400 images. Kodak has made some handy scales to help...
  21. Re: What color negative/transparency would you recommend for night photography?

    +1 on using Portra 400. You want the faster film to reduce exposure times. Also, Portra 400 is warmer (more yellow) than Portra 160. A warmer film will be better for the colors you're after. Note,...

    Re: HP5+ and Pyrocat HD in a Jobo CPP3

    Couple possible issues:

    1. Processing 5 sheets of 8x10 in a 3005 drum in 1lt of Pyrocat 1:1:100 chemistry is likely not enough chemistry to cover that amount of film. It would likely be better to...
