    Re: Possible Lens Flare Issue...

    That could have been a possibility too. I was backed into some other mangroves trying to get the photo. I'm looking forward to trying it again to see what happens. Thanks!

    I have done that with the dark slide in the past. Much cheaper than a bellows or hood! Thanks.

    Re: Possible Lens Flare Issue...

    That's the other item I was trying to think of. Are these lens dependent or film size dependent? Thanks!

    Hello all!

    It's great that you are going to wade into the pool. I'm a photo instructor for a couple of community colleges. I teach in the "Lifelong Learning" area. I'm like the original poster, the majority of...
  10. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    I appreciate you taking the time to respond. You are correct, I used the Reprocity Timer app on the phone and it told me to slow the shutter speed down by two stops, which I did when I had the orange...

    I use a thermometer and make sure it's 68F when I start. Thanks!
  12. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    I don't have a reducing back for my camera yet. I figure it's the cost of learning. I find black and white isn't expensive compared to what some are paying for color. Stearman Press is working on a...

    Will,

    I really appreciate your help with this. It's slowly coming together. One thing that was recommend to try and slow down the highlights is to do a prewash and then put the developer in....
  15. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    I appreciate your comments. I totally agree. I have shot about half a box now and everything is getting easier. One thing that I had to realize is that even if two folks were to expose the same, they...
  16. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    This is great. This really boils it down to make it easy. Granted, I've not been doing this for many years like most here, however I felt as if there had to be a way to get started. I've made a note...
  17. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    I appreciate this. I figured it can't be that hard with so many folks doing it. I'm sure once you get in the groove and know what works for your process, everything just moves along. Thanks!
  18. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    Great info. I'll give this a go. Appreciate the input.
  19. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    Do you meter for the shadow detail and place it in the zone you want, then check your EVs? Thanks!

  21. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    You are correct, I was talking to someone and they said that they were over exposed by two stops. I would love to take a workshop or classes on this (ironically I'm a teacher for digital photography...
  22. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    You are very correct on the lighting here in FL, that is why I'm trying to wrestle with the dynamic range as I know this is going to be a challenge most days. To keep what I'm doing constant, I keep...
  23. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    For those who recommend to forget the Zone Sustem, how do you meter the scene and then do you develop per the manufacturer times?
  24. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    I appreciate all of the feedback. I'll keep at it and see what comes out. Thanks...
  25. Re: Newbie Needs help on B&W film developing...

    To answer some questions, LF, the Zone System and film developing are all new to me. I have been studying all of this for months and decided last month to buy a camera, film and chemicals. Now I'm in...

    This might be a stupid question, but it sounds like there must be different ones for different sizes? I'm shooting 8x10. Thanks.

    Backpack to hold Zone VI 8x10

    I'm new to LF and I just acquired a Zone VI 8x10 (Fred Picker version). I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a good backpack to carry the necessary equipment around. Thanks.
