  1. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    Most unpopular opinion? That using a view camera is really cool. I quit believing that when DSLR photographers started looking at me, not with admiration, but with the kind of pitiful gaze reserved...

    Re: Keeping or tossing prints?

    That’s a great story. I often feel like tearing up my prints, but it wouldn’t provide the same kind of drama.

    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...

    Re: Speedotron speed ring for 202vf head

    Well, it looks as if this whole thing was operator error on my part. I just gave it another go and was able to attach my cheapish Lumopro softbox to the Speedotron/Chimera speed ring. Timid fellow...

    Thanks for the feedback. I guess my thinking was cockeyed, in that I thought strobe manufacturers would make their speed rings compatible with a broad range of soft boxes. I guess Speedotron had a...

    Speedotron speed ring for 202vf head

    I recently acquired a used Speedotron speed ring to use on a 202vf head. I assumed that the Speedotron-brand speed ring would work with any soft box, but I noticed when it arrived that the ring has...

    Re: Taking film in and out of the freezer

    My two cents: I’ve never stored my black-and-white film in the freezer or fridge. I just make sure the box stays in a cool, dry place at room temperature. Never had any problems, or at least none...
