    Re: Lighting for interiors

    The architectural interior photographer that I knew would often light interiors by dressing in black and essentially painting the room with a strobe, all one one sheet of film. Takes some practice...

    Re: would flashing help me in this situation?

    I woild definitely try flashing. Burning with the 5 filter wil make the grain much more apparent, I often make 3-stop burns with the 00 filter.
  5. Re: Photoshop Cropping tool -Need some help! How can I force it to stay in the frame?

    Particularly, snap to document bounds, unless you're trying to trim just a little off the edge of the image. Otherwise, first just turn on snap to guides and put a guide where you want that close...

    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    Is there any concern about residual fixer (continuing silver, an antibacterial agent) going into the ground and being absorbed by plants? Is it benign, beneficial or so slight that it's not an issue...

  12. Re: Which used digital camera to shoot images of my prints??

    If it is only to post and submit to shows, almost any digital camera with a decent lens that will focus close enough will do. You might have to do some post-processing to adjust the final image. Oh,...
  13. Re: Is it possible/practical to make digital negative for use in an enlarger?

    I have made nice 10x10 prints from 3000x3000, 300dpi digital files ganged 12-up for 8x10 and sent to Cox Black & White Lab for an LVT on Tri-X 320. There was a bit of a learning curve, since they...
  14. Re: Is it possible/practical to make digital negative for use in an enlarger?

    Inkjet printers don't have the resolution to accommodate much enlargement. You really need to make (more likely have made by a lab) an LVT film negative from you digital file(s).

  16. Re: History of Promo Actor 8X10 Headshot Discussion

    There used to be a lab in Hollywood called Quantity Photo. And that's what they did. I think the minimum was 10 8x10 prints from a single neg, but they regularly did 50 or 100.

    Re: Katherine Hepburn negatives - which film?

    Most probably the studio that made the film. In those days most photographers worked "for hire" and did not retain the rights to their images. Given the age of the image, it is probably in the public...

    You're going to have to be a bit more soecific. Which ones? I certainly don't know of a church or museum that would allow the use of a tripod without first asking for permission.

    Quite a reach from a nuclear button to a dry mount press. Still. I don't think you can do any serious harm to a dry mount press trying to dry fiber prints.

  31. Re: Is fiber paper worth the additional cost for selling prints compared to rc paper?

    Photography is not an inexpensive undertaking. Film, chemicals (or processing), paper (including what goes in the trash for tests, etc), and mounting, matting and framing if you choose--all are not...
  32. Re: Is fiber paper worth the additional cost for selling prints compared to rc paper?

    In the end, the difference in the cost of the paper should have little impact on a sale, unless you are selling a lot of really large prints dirt cheap. So go for the extra bucks and work and use...
  33. Re: Is fiber paper worth the additional cost for selling prints compared to rc paper?

    RC is a non-starter for selling prints. Buyers expect the longevity of an archivally-fixed and washed fiber print. Also, I don't think you can properly spot (as in touch-up) an RC print.

    I have to disagree. One of the advantages of the Nova (and any other vertical slot processor) is there is very little surface area of the chemicals exposed to the air, so developer will last much...
