    Re: how old are we?

    I was thinking of you as I was back in Chicago teaching at SAIC a few weeks ago, but my wife back in ABQ had a heart event and I had to cut it short, fly back, and finish the class on Zoom (a...

    Re: how old are we?

    I went to my 35TH and fully a 1/3 of my class were dead already. So anyone vertical should be smilin. It wasn't my trip socially. It seemed to be dominated by posers-the same posers from back in the...

    Re: How Many LF Formats Do You Use/Own?

    good answer.

    I long ago decided I needed fewer cameras but more film, gas, time to make meaningful images.
  6. Re: What are we allowed to talk about in the Lounge?

    I am probably largely responsible for the more strident moderation trend that began a few years back. This place was toxic in many ways or at least many of us thought so. Looking at the thread...

    Re: How Many LF Formats Do You Use/Own?

    Just down to one Phillips 4x5 and one Linhof Super Technica 5x7. They are used frequently. They will probably outlive me.

    Re: Music as analogy for LF photography

    I love many forms of music from Classical and Jazz to Grunge and Bluegrass. But when I am photographing I am fully present in the scene and everything else feels like a distraction. I want to feel...
  9. Re: Photo travel by vehicle, what's your favorite?

    Yeah mine was t-boned and totaled. I should have bought another one but the Highlander dropped in my lap. It was a Great car too. Both went 200k with only brakes, spark plugs and front struts.
  10. Re: Photo travel by vehicle, what's your favorite?

    a series of VW Camper Vans, then a Ram Charger, then a Toyota Tacoma 4x4, then a Toyota Highlander to currently Jan Pietrzak's GMC Yukon which he gave me as he was dying. The Yukon is my sentimental...

    Re: Kostiner Archival Washer question

    I've used mine for decades with no air bubbles, as I replaced the valve myself-to long to explain (I may have it sitting around somewhere). I think the bubbles look cool but serve no real purpose.
  12. Poll: Re: Seeking 4x5 Lens Advice - Which Lens To Keep - Fujinon Or Nikkor 150mm 5.6

  15. Re: Precision and Accuracy in LF Photography: How much is enough?

    I like to concentrate on the image and not the technology when I shoot. I want the technology to be tested and dependable whether it is ISO, Zone placement, levels or whatever so I don't have to...

    Re: Quick releases for LF cameras

    To me it's important enough to organize my gear for speed and practice setting it up quickly. We have a saying here in NM "Don't like the weather? Wait 15 minutes." So maybe it's the rapidly...

    Re: Quick releases clamps and plates

    I use the Crane with a variety of plates. I like the Crane because of the "catch and lock" feature. It gives an added level of security to me. I dropped a 5K camera/lens once because of fumbling with...
  28. Re: Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

    HABS/HAER requires a project and negative number to be written on the base side of the film along the top edge in the rebate next to where the code notches are.
  29. Re: Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

    Reading up on that on their website, as far as I can tell, they seem to be made for erasing non-permanent pigments. They don't seem to make anything to erase the permanent pigment inks.
  30. Re: Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

    Another related question is removing the writing if you make a mistake. The only archival solution I know of is Pec-12 cleaning solution and it struggles to remove the Staedler Pigment Liner and...
  31. Re: Diffraction. When does it really matter with LF?

  32. Re: Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

    For HABS, I guess I am always looking for a pen that lays down enough pigment so that I don't have to make a second pass. I find my my second passes always end up a bit off register and looks messy....
  33. Re: Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

    FWIW I did my own test as per above. aA bit different results-there must be batch differences. I found the Staedler Pigment Liner and Faber Ecco most opaque so I started labeling a project. I...
