    Re: Strange black blur spots on 4x5 320 Trix

    I've never seen any issues from it. Film doesn't have to be sterile or semiconductor fab clean, or we'd all be in a lot of trouble. Developers are usually so alkaline that any oily stuff on the film...

    She does still lifes reminiscent of 17th century painters. Why make photographs like that, one wonders. But hers, I like. Large format--who knows? Digital?--probably, but she's not saying on the...

  7. Re: Do you use a test strip or a test sheet when you print in darkroom?

    Can't argue with Martin's sensible advice above.

    If I've recently printed a negative that looks similar in contrast and density to the negative in question, I'll dive in and use a whole sheet and...

    Re: Kostiner Archival Washer question

    Yeah, it helps to dig out small prints that have drifted to the bottom of the tank. The guy who sold me mine didn't know what it was for, either.

  12. Re: “Good composition is merely the strongest way of seeing.”

    Composition is part of making images that reflect the way you see the world. I think this is partly why some photographers' pictures are often instantly recognizable as "theirs".

    Very nice outcome in this case, ic-racer. Is the black border critical to the success of this image? I think not.

    You're probably right about the spiders. We have perennial daisies and pink coneflowers in our garden. Sometimes a tiny (3-4 mm) crab spider will be hiding in the middle, waiting for a flower fly to...
