  1. Poll: Re: What's your #1 anxiety about LF (in your personal life)?

    Adding to ic-racer's point:

    I live in a building complex with a pretty nice garden area and big beautiful trees. A few years ago I started photographing the close-up details of the trees with...
  2. Re: Tim Hall, videos on darkroom materials.

    He knows what he's talking about - very informative. I only wish he would break the videos into chapters for future reference.

    Thanks for the tip; it so happens that I have the bags you're talking about.
  9. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    With XTOL I got a little over box speed and a little under with D-23. My tests were confirmed by Richard Ritter (I was new to using a densitometer and didn't trust my results). The film is Tri-X 320...
  10. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    I absolutely get what you're saying. Their customer service (caring) has gone by the wayside for a long time now. I hope they will keep making Tri-X and T-Max with the same quality control to date....
  11. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    Whenever I hear of quality-control problems in Kodak products, my heart sinks.
    This particular snafu is directly related to their changing supplier/manufacturer for their chemistry line. One would...

    Re: Selenium Toner for Archivability

    Some printers will tone in Selenium long enough to obtain D-max, and after a complete wash, will bathe the print in Sistan.

    Re: Is Oriental Seagull paper gone too?

    Thanks Steve - I hope the paper becomes available in the US again. I get the sense that it is a distribution problem and that, hopefully, it will be resolved.

    It's not a huge increase but, as you point out, it is encouraging. I wonder what it looks like at Adox and Foma.

    Re: Is Oriental Seagull paper gone too?

    I’ve read that, although film sales are up, paper sales are either flat or declining a bit.
    We have lost so many great papers over the past 20 years or so.

    No one has had in stock for months. Calls and emails to the distributor have gone unanswered and I have no idea if this is a distribution problem o if they simply stpped making it.

    Re: Has Diafine been discontinued?

    A reasonable way to look at it. I used Diafine a lot when I photographed musicians in dimly lit clubs; I still have 4-5 1/gal. packages; Acufine is quite useful also and still use it regularly.

    Can the chemistry still be reliably sourced for Dye Transfer? I know Kodak stopped production years ago. It’s a difficult process to begin with and I wonder how challenging it is for any practitioner...
  30. Re: Eliot Porter's darkroom with Jim Bones

    Long ago I saw some of Eliot Porter’s prints at an exhibition; I had never seen such beautiful color prints before, or since.
    The process is laborious to be sure, but probably unequalled even now.
