    Re: The Setup and the Shot

    Lovely rhythms.

    I did a double-take at the GG, with the bright sky seemingly at upper left.

    As usual, Bob, an important point, and certainly something I should have already considered when I thought about removing the clear cover and reorienting the GG with the ground surface forward. Thank...

    Hi, Ohio. From your post, I, too, have difficulty understanding exactly what kind of results you are experiencing and how comfortable you are with basic exposure and development controls. Some of the...

    An extra pane on my Tachihara

    As one who likes to know his equipment well, I can only excuse the following oversight by noting that my Tachihara 4x5, purchased used several years ago, was my first field view and that I had been...

    Fine work, atomstitcher and Tocu. Tuco, the scale of and lighting yours make the trees appear almost as miniatures.

    Well, I should have known. My day job involves my special MS Word skills, and I am aware of the various coded "alphabets," though I rarely use them. Anyway, thanks -- I immedidately opened Word and...

    Thanks, Doremus. Perhaps I'll give the topping-up another try. My toning preferences are probably similar to yours. Our digital brothers and sisters have the advantage of being able to tone all...
  9. Re: Issues with faint splotches on negatives when home-developing

    You have both out-of-focus and sharp "splotches." Sharp are probably on the neg, as embedded dust in the emulsion or stuck to the base, or on the glass. Out of focus might be on the glass underside,...
  10. Re: Recent results: warm-tone paper and developer, selenium toning

    Doremus, after seeing several posts on "topping up" selenium toner in a thread a while back, probably including one by you, I gave it a try. My toner bottle holds 40 oz. I was testing identical...

    The following may be of little interest to those who have been using a warm-tone paper for a while; for those relatively new to processing B&W, I hope it may have some value.

    I print mostly on...

  17. Re: How do I achieve this look? Lens or movement?

    Perhaps it's possible that the poster on the linked page created some of that look himself. It's a kind of posterization in parts of the image, which can be caused by limiting the color pallete as a...

    Chris, nice composition, great feeling of summery light.
  23. Re: How do I achieve this look? Lens or movement?

    I would say that the photo was made with the lens wide open, probably little or no lens tilt, possibly a slight lens swing the left. The lens, which is equivalent to 300 mm, has only about 3" DOF...
  24. Curiosity testing for diffraction limitation -- very general
