    Re: Multiple masks for contact printing?

    I stripped some rubilith off a frame last night -- it was set up for 8x10 and I was contacting 5.5x14 negatives (and some 5x7). As long as one has some alcohol or acetone or such to remove left...

    Re: Tools for cutting darkslides?

    I used a hacksaw, followed with a file -- but I was cutting metal darkslides...more robust in the pack, bends rather than breaks, and can be hammered flat again if needed. I broke one made of more...

    Re: Multiple masks for contact printing?

    I prefer to think of it as a filter reduces the light coming into the lens, but with specific wavelengths blocked more than others. THEN I start thinking about which wavelengths (colors). So a...

    Re: Why is aperture backwards??

    The f/stop value is derived from an equation: It is the focal length divided by the diameter of entrance pupil. Pretty simple, but it can get complicated with some lenses and where to exactly...

    Congrats, Jim. Be accepted into the show is a great honor. It has a great tradition as a muli-media showcase of Sierra-inspired art for, well, 36 years. And the book is amazing.

    Its all relative, depending on the filter color, colors present, and the needs of the process I'll be printing with (non-silver). Small shadow areas where I do not need detail, but are 'fogged' by...
