  2. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Peter, reading your suggestion I had one of those Homer Simpson *doh* moments.
    Self-evident in hindsight (like so many things in life).
    I was so concerned with preserving the directional "feel" of...
  3. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Seezee, most of my work has been with natural/existing light. I'm only starting to explore the world of artificial lighting.

    Scan of a darkroom print on Ilford MGWT RC paper.

    This is a composite picture, with two negatives printed simultaneously on the same paper.

  9. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Bob,
    Xray films were developed to produce high contrast images as shown below by the published data from the manufacturer – in this case, Fuji AD-M mammography film.

    But, they are very responsive...
  10. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Bob,
    I conducted the tests below for my own purposes, but I thought that they might provide a better answer your question than my words.

    4 pieces of Fuji AD-M mammography film received identical...

    Late afternoon light.
    Captured on Fuji AD-M xray film, with a Kodak Master View 8x10" camera and a Fujinon 180 lens.

    Tanks guys!

    My setup on Sunday night included a Kodak Master 8x10" with a Super Angulon 165mm and a Rittreck View 5x7" with a Super Angulon 90mm, both set to f/8.

    Made 3 exposures with each...

  20. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Randy,

    Even though I do like how the cyanotype turned out (also did a darker version, but I like this one better), I'm not the biggest fan of this process in general.

    Despite all my experience...
  21. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Well, sharing our experiences and inspiring each other is what it's all about, right?

    Here is a scan from a contact print on Hahnemühle Platinum Rag coated with Mike Ware's Cyanotype formula.

  22. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Scan from a contact print on Ilford MG warmtone paper at grade 1.

    More often than not, I make two identical exposures of any scene I deem worthy, so that I get a second chance if processing goes...
  23. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Randy (and anyone else who might be interested),

    Finally took some pictures of the PVC tubes that I mentioned testing.

  24. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Randy, sure, I'll take a couple of pictures and post them here soon.

    By the way, I'd like to make clear that all the posts I made about "my tubes" were only meant as clarifications. I was only...
  25. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Randy, according to my research, the 3" tube is the recommended size for 8x10.
    The format I'm most interest in at the moment is 18x24cm (the European equivalent) and I have developed a few sheets in...
  26. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Rapidrob,

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us.
    You've packed so much great information in your post, I saved it for future reference.

    I'd like to offer a couple of notes though.
    ...
  27. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Randy, I can't be 100% sure of what goes on inside the tube during processing, since the tube is closed.
    My comment on how this whole thing works is an extrapolation from the results I'm getting,...
  28. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Randy, it has to do with the diameter of the tube.
    For each format you have to use the "right" diameter, so that the film curls inside the tube in such a way as to not being pushed completely flat...
  29. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Koraks, yes.

    They are plain PVC tubes, manually rolled on a diy roller base.

    A couple of notes though:

    These tubes don't accept end caps directly. They require a coupling and a screw cap...
  30. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Koraks, thank you.

    Yes, it's double sided.
    No, I do not strip it.

    The PVC tubes are still at the testing stage. I did some research (including this forum) and came up with a number of internal...

    After an interminable hiatus due to a broken leg, I'm back up and running—well, figuratively.
    Slowly starting to work again.

  32. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Another film that could work for your purposes, although outside the scope of this thread, is the Arista Ortho Litho sold by Freestyle.

    It has single side emulsion, anti-halation layer, fine...
  33. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    In your case, the problem is not the enlarging part (since you'll use a regular negative) but the accumulation of the effect that the lack of anti-halation has, because the edge softness in the...
  34. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Most xray films don't have anti-halation back layer.
    This is the reason for the softness mentioned by Corran.
    Edge sharpness is diminished by highlights bleeding into adjacent lower values.
    Which...
  35. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Thanks.
    It was my first attempt to do 1:1 macro with 8x10" (18x24cm).
    There is a learning curve, that I'm just starting to climb.
    When shooting landscapes, adding some tilt (refocus-repeat), is...

  37. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    It's a large olive tree.
    The perspective (point of view plus very wide, for the format, lens) is what threw you off.
    And yes, looking at the gg at f64 it's almost impossible to tell whether the...
  38. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Thanks Andrew.
    I like the SA 90 too.
    Bought it for 4x5" a while back, but recently realized that it actually covers 13x18cm.
    This is the first picture I shot with it in this format.
    Will try it...
