    Re: Up Off The Mat...Again?

    I sell mostly silver prints. Marketing the handmade nature of these prints is key, and the pricing reflects that. I have seen digital photographers selling 13x19 prints, matted to 18x24, for $25,...

  4. Re: CZJ Biotessar 165 2.8 image samples and shutter question

    To further confuse matters - there's a few different versions of this lens. One version is an f/2.7 variant, which I had for a few years and was in a #4 Compound IIRC. I don't know if the f/2.8 would...

    My newest 'darkcloth' for my 12x20 is simply an old bedsheet. Folded in half for a bit more opaqueness (queen-size). It's only a few ounces in weight.

    Food for thought - a "4x10" image made with a 150mm lens means on a half 4x5 sheet he would be looking at about a 75mm lens.

    Using that half darkslide means the image will either be "shifted" up...

    I've seen some say 325mm for 8x10. Exact pixel measurements via Photoshop of a scanned, dry 8x10 sheet gives me 319mm from end to end and 312.5mm for image area. I usually say 312mm for 8x10 coverage...
