    Re: Ilford Master Printer NEW

    That was great. I think I need a master printer. I feel as if I’ve gone as far as I can with my own printing skills, and I’ve been at this for 40-plus years. There’s probably a hell of a lot more I...

    Re: post your trees!

    I can't decide if this is / was one large tree, or a group. The Victorians (in the UK) often planted saplings in a tight group, but this is in rural farmland and I think it is unlikely. There are...
  4. Re: Help - 4x5 Negative Developing Issue - Looking for Ideas

    As Koraks suggested, it might be an agitation problem, i.e., surge pattern or bromide drag. Tray processing sheet film solved a similar problem for me. I don’t mind being in total darkness shuffling...

    Re: post your trees!

    I like that, Kevin. How did you develop the negative? Nice detail in the dark trunks of foreground trees without completely blowing out the bright background detail.

    Re: Old Things,Farms,Barns,Buildings, Plus

    Thanks, it turned out well. I need to experiment more with stand development. For scenes similar to yours, I’ve had modest success with highly diluted HC110.

    That’s a great photo. I like the mood, and I like how you kept some detail in the window. Was it normal development?

  10. Re: Keeping borders square when trimming photos

    Dahle makes a rotary trimmer that’s priced significantly lower than the Rotatrim models, but, you probably get what you pay for. But I’m thinking it might produce better results than my carpenter’s...
  11. Re: Keeping borders square when trimming photos

    Has anyone used Dahle brand trimmers? They’re more in line with what I can afford. The Rotatrims are a bit pricey for me, although I’m sure they’re worth it.
  12. Re: Keeping borders square when trimming photos

    Thanks for the feedback. I think I’ll have to spring for a decent trimmer, if I can find one that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. My wife will be thrilled when the UPS man arrives with yet another box...
  13. Keeping borders square when trimming photos

    For those of you who dry mount, how do you keep the edges square when trimming the borders and dry mount tissue? I use a carpenter’s square and utility knife, but I often screw it up, ending up with...

    Well, I’m in the minority here. I never squeegee my prints. I just hang them up to dry. Never noticed any ill effects from this, but after reading these posts, I think I’ll try it and compare a dried...

    Chester, in my opinion, your darkroom print looks fine. But I know how niggling things like that can drive one crazy.

    [QUOTE=Drew Wiley;1645129]Everything depends on the specifics. For example, what do you mean by deep red? 24A isn't as deep as a 25; 29 is deeper still, and some brands deeper than others. That...

    Keeping or tossing prints?

    In the course of a typical darkroom session, I’ll wind up with multiple prints, trying to arrive at the “perfect” one. The so-called “work prints” aren’t especially bad, but they exhibit flaws that...
