  1. Re: Alignment workflow (architechture)

    The left and right verticals are not parallel, indicating that you have a little tilt to the camera. I always start by setting tilt, so that the camera is plumb and then adjust pan to bring the...

  5. Re: DPL users/owners of Howtek/Aztek scanners

    I have Silverfast and DPL for my 4500. I do really prefer DPL for negs due to the CMS methodology that TG mentioned. Also note, since the aging Silverfast route is 32 bit, your outputs will be...
  6. Re: DPL users/owners of Howtek/Aztek scanners

    Dean, if you want, you can profile for transparencies using an IT8 target, but it's not really possible to profile for negatives. Silverfast is decent, but yeah, I love DPL, especially for negs.

    I believe that it's easily argued that the nude form, expressly the female nude, hasn't been a legitimate artistic exploration since Steichen. The subject is highly problematized and not all...
  8. Re: Epson has printers with a 'spectroproofer'. Gimmick?

    Shouldn't the ink dry down a bit? Reading it as it spools out seems premature.

    Re: Having the most fun...

    Heh, it was 1 pm. Once I got going I did produce those pretty quickly. I hypo-cleared them, so they were only in the wash a half hour. Years ago I worked as a black and white printer and I would...

    Re: Ilford 4x5 film packaging

    For multi-day trips on location, I've downloaded thousands of sheets into triple boxes without using the bag and never fogged any film. But, yeah, if you can return it, worth the peace of mind.
  14. Re: LED UV Light Box: Build Your Own for Under $150

    I just emailed Jürgen to see if he's been thinking about it. My Nuarc works beautifully, but I'd love to go bigger.

    Re: Heiland LED Cold Light Source

    Re: Lane Plate Processing

    Jason's instructions call for a hardening fixer, which TF-4 is not. I'd fix with your Kodak Hardening Fixer.

  23. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

  34. Re: Chamonix Front Standard Holes/Options
