  1. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    Wow, Ken -- that's a really good bleaching job down in the bottom left corner.

  2. Re: Ilford MG filters... are there 2 different sets?

    The older filters had the darker magenta filters for teh highest contrast grades. Ilford announced a new set with the lighter high-grade filters at some point, I'm guessing it was in the mid-80s. At...

    Re: February portraits

    Paul, this is fine. I find so little portraiture that truly harmonizes subject and setting, perhaps because it is so difficult. It is my path as well, though I work strictly in film. 14 seconds and...

    Hi, Peter. Interesting to see the two crops. It's not just that the formal composition changes; each has its merit. But they say different things. I actually prefer the more generous crop with the...

    Re: Negative negatives - using SP445 Tank

    I have also used the SP445 with great success from the first sheet. I do not use a pre-soak. The patterns you're showing could result from lack of initial agitation, a poor agitation pattern,...
  14. Re: Chemistry Query: grain enalrgement from potassium ferricyanide or bromide?

    Doremus, thank you for your patience. I failed to write clearly, once again. We agree. What I meant to convey, is that the larger grain in the first instance was undoubtedly due to the nearly...
  15. Re: Chemistry Query: grain enalrgement from potassium ferricyanide or bromide?

    I ran some more tests yesterday, and, although I could hone in a bit more, I think the results are adequate for my purposes. The results are a bit tricky to evaluate, because more than one variable...
  16. Re: Bergger new lower pricing for 2020 and Introducing Bergger PrintFilm

    I agree that this is good news. Additions to our range of materials are welcome. I tried some of the Bergger paper a while back and found it very good.

  19. Re: Chemistry Query: grain enalrgement from potassium ferricyanide or bromide?

    Testing in progress; initial result suggests that you're correct. Makes sense. Assuming this proves true in my next test, it brings up an interesting possibility, namely, using SLIMT with D-23 1:3...

  21. Chemistry Query: grain enalrgement from potassium ferricyanide or bromide?

    I find David Kachel's SLIMT technique useful for handling long subject luminance ranges. For those not familiar, it is a means of using highly dilute potassium ferricyanide between exposure and...

    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    Jess, that's one beautiful darkroom. Mine's in a bedroom, too, adn similar in size, but I couldn't custom build a counter top to save my life, let alone cabinetry. Enviable!
