    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    It's a five-foot sink made by Delta. I ordered it from Calumet years ago. I built the stand for it, which, for a guy like me, who wouldn't know a plumb line from a plum pudding, was a major...

    Here's my small bare-bones operation -- a converted bathroom in my basement. Years ago, my father-in-law (rest his soul) built the work surface over the bathtub. It's hinged and swings up...

    Re: Print Washing

    Informative thread. I think I'm washing my prints incorrectly. As I usually tone them the following day after a printing session (too tired after being on my feet for hours), I give them an...

    Re: Show Me Your Night Shots!

    Thanks very much. I need to re-visit this negative in the darkroom and see if I can produce a silver-gelatin print that's close to the scanned one on the screen.

    Re: Post Your Photos Made At Close Distance

    I love that. I might steal your idea and photograph our beloved Kenmore washer, which is still going strong (Knock on wood) after nearly 30 years of use.

    I, too, like that image the way it is. It reminds of a missed photo opp years ago, and I still kick myself for not photographing it. There was an old stand-alone beer joint called "Ben's Place" (not...

    Re: Is Oriental Seagull paper gone too?

    It is unsettling to read about so few choices in silver-gelatin papers these days. I’ve been using Ilford’s multi grade classic FB paper and am very happy with it. I hope Ilford, bless them, stay...

  18. What do I need to use this enlarging lens?

    I’ve been using the “new” HC110, and so far it’s giving me the same results as the old stuff at the dilutions I’m used to working with. The new HC110 is easier to pour and measure, too. I still have...

    Clothes iron as tacking iron?

    Been mounting prints with archival linen tape, but I’m just not satisfied with the lack of flatness. I’ve fired up my ancient dry mount press, but I don’t have a tacking iron. Would an old clothes...
  39. Re: Which State is the Best State for Landscape Photographers to Live?

    I would list Wyoming, but I'm sure the entire state doesn't resemble Grand Teton National Park, which we visited last fall. I was in awe of the Tetons. Sadly, I did not have my view camera on that...
