    Re: Dodging & Burning 8x10 Contact Prints

    I have used a sharpie on the glass part way thru the exposure. Other types of masking are options, too.

    If the exposures are long enough, you can do a lot of 'playing' around. Take the frame...

    Re: how large (or small) are your prints?

    Yes...that is how it was hung. Even had it up in my office/stockroom (tall ceiling) at the university for a long while.

  3. Re: A few recent selenium toning notes with WTF

    It has been since the early 90s since I silver printed, but I used a warm tone paper (Portriga Rapid 111) and also selenium-toned.

    I preferred the slightly reddish brown color I was seeing, before...

    Re: how large (or small) are your prints?

    A 4x10 B&W negative of mine was scanned and inkjet printed to about 3'x7' (vertical) for a particular space -- I still have it rolled up around here somewhere. I loved the idea...quite fun to see....

    Re: Why is aperture backwards??

    Just upside down...or downside up...but never backwards. Although all my carbon prints are printed 'backwards'.

    In use, the B&S contact printing frames are wonderful and will last one's lifetime. I have one that sees a little more use than the other and there is wear in the wood where 10 hours into a printing...

    Re: Why is aperture backwards??

    What strange gods of optics declared that the the closer the camera is to an object, the further the lens has to be from the film for the object to be in focus?!!!!!
  11. Re: The mysterious “Hutchings” filter factor for b/w landscapes

    Bernice, the film and lens already alters how colors and tonalities are reproduced. Why forsake one tool for another? Consider the use of them all for every image. It just happens that the choice...
  12. Re: ULF (and other sizes) Negative Sleeves In Stock at Climax Photo

    Even with shipping at the quoted rate, the sleeves are a great price. Buy a thousand 8x10 sleeves for 30 cents each, including shipping. And 50 cents each if you buy only 200.

    Thanks for the heads up. I just opened a new (NOS) box of Kodak 11x14 plastic sleeves -- sweet, but they won't last forever...perhaps I shopuld pick up some replacements while I am thinking about it.

    Re: Multiple masks for contact printing?

    First -- which side of glass the mask is on will detemine the sharpness of the line/edge it casts. If on top, there will a slight diffusion...if it matters. And it will if you try to separate the...

    I prefer to think of it as a filter reduces the light coming into the lens, but with specific wavelengths blocked more than others. THEN I start thinking about which wavelengths (colors). So a...

    The f/stop value is derived from an equation: It is the focal length divided by the diameter of entrance pupil. Pretty simple, but it can get complicated with some lenses and where to exactly...

    Congrats, Jim. Be accepted into the show is a great honor. It has a great tradition as a muli-media showcase of Sierra-inspired art for, well, 36 years. And the book is amazing.

    Its all relative, depending on the filter color, colors present, and the needs of the process I'll be printing with (non-silver). Small shadow areas where I do not need detail, but are 'fogged' by...
