    Re: Reasons for using reversal film?

    Reversal film is gorgeous, but doesn't have the latitude of negative. You have to be very precise with your exposure, highlights burn out and shadows block up easily. Negatives give you more options...

    Re: Used Norman 200b

    Many of the portraits in Avedon's book have catch lights (including the young woman on the right in your example), sometimes quite small, sometimes more than one or a strong horizontal reflection.

  23. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Just shoot some film with the factor as specified and the metered-through-the-filter reading (not always accurate, by the way) and maybe bracket, too.

  27. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Sandbags just drape over one leg or the strut of the stand, best if neither end of the bag actually touches the ground. Multiple bags can be used if the light is heavy, has a large softbox or on a...
  28. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Sand bags are cheap insurance, why not use them? Have some small (10#) ones, too--they come in handy as counterweights for booms and tripods.
  29. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    C Stands are pretty versatile in the studio, I use them with a boom and Hensel heads and monolights. Don't forget to use a couple of sand bags over the legs, otherwise you're asking for trouble. And...
