    Re: Flower bloom in Death valley

    There is quite a bit going on in the InyoKern area. There is a forum member who once worked on a base in that area. I was distinctly unamused by being deliberately buzzed by very low flying Navy jets...

    Re: Cable release thread

    You'll need a little jeweler's screwdriver to remove and replace the threaded piece. Just be careful to put the tiny screws in a small container during the procedure and not to drop them.

  10. Re: What's considered "high altitude" when it comes to UV filters?

    Depends on how clear the air is. Sea level can have high UV issues. People get sunburn especially quickly on some beaches, for example. My wife sure learned that the hard way in Hawaii, where the air...

    Re: 210mm or 240mm for Portraits?

    I've used both focal lengths. I wouldn't worry about that minor distinction too much. It's more important to home in on a specific kind of lens. Anything in a big no.3 shutter might be unduly heavy...

  19. Re: Portra 160 or 400 for portraits ? Opinions and experiences

    Both are going to have way less contrast and saturation that a chrome film like Provia, and have a warmer balance, wider latitude, and a softer more muted rendition geared to skintones. But the 160...

    Delta 100 is capable of very good highlight gradation, but quickly builds high contrast. So it sounds like you overdeveloped it.

    If the ambient air temp is too warm, all you need is a small "blue ice" pak in the water jacket, or else a slow drip line of cold tap water, slow enough that the heater can keep up with it.
