    Re: A visit to an art fair

    Nice if you had some photos from it. You would think this is some writers forum with the terrible reports from the field that have no illustrations. Every show I go to, I shoot it. I mean, you are...

    Yes, Kodak was something in their day. But nostalgia only goes so far.

    ...and where is the GD film on Kodak's, DuPont's and Agfa's operation???

  4. Re: Behind the Film - Inside the ILFORD factory

    You can say the same thing about photography...nothing magic there. Yet we know that one photo is not the same as another photo. Time will tell.

  5. Re: Behind the Film - Inside the ILFORD factory

    You have to wonder how they coated film in the old days. Here is Kodak's spooling operation...in the dark with infrared flash.

  6. Re: Behind the Film - Inside the ILFORD factory

    Yes, like that in other areas as well. Can't get young people interested. If they do get them, they don't stick.
  7. Re: Behind the Film - Inside the ILFORD factory

    Good luck with that. But we can always hope.
  8. Re: Behind the Film - Inside the ILFORD factory

    You can see why digital lacks the film look. The grain of film is organic and variable whereas pixels are not.

  10. Does any scanner have a 3 exposure HDR scan option?

    In that it would scan the film 3 times to get the highlights and shadows, then combine the scans? Or it could scan the film 3 times and spit out 3 different exposure scans that could be combined...
  11. Re: Photography and Plagiarism - A Personal Story

    Yes, concur. Photogs copy ideas off each other all the time.

    Too bad not more oral history and photos from meeting Weston. That is the crime...not plagiarism.

    I got a bunch of cheap, old Agfa 8x loups from the 1970's and a $$ Peak 15X. There are lots of nice loups out there. And some real crappers.

    BTW, I use old 8x Agfa loupes. Not the best, but very doable. Have 5 or 6 of them in various bags and around house.

    I lost some hi $$ loupes years ago in a flood and never replaced them.

    Re: Lighting for a copy stand

    Why don't you get a cheap PC if short on Macs? I've never used a Mac, but wouldn't a PC be as suitable for your use? Walmart has a nice HP slim desktop for $280 online.
