  1. Re: Platinotype: Making Photographs in Platinum and Palladium

    Ziatype works beautifully. The print color varies slightly from a Pt or Pd print, but is appropriate for many of my images. The main difficulty is the humidity of the paper must be tightly controlled.

    I have never bought a pre-mixed solution, but I have had a few particles precipitate in glycol over the years I have mixed my own PCat HD. It is usually caused by the temperature in the darkroom...

  5. Re: Keeping the film rebate for contact prints

    I'm with Vaughn. I usually print the entire negative.If the rebate is distracting I mask it out with overmat when presenting.

    I am a great believer in having plenty of film. I am 91, and my 8x10 and 5x12 stock was down to 400 and 500 sheets respectively,so I took advantage of the Ilford ULF order to stock up, as well as a...

    Re: eTone focusing cloths - opinions?

    The major problem is that it doesn't cover the bellows. This may not be a problem with a new camera,but one which has been owned and used for 25-75 years, or more, may well need this help.

    Re: Mat Size vs. Mount Size

    13x16 gives you 3 boards from a full sheet of board, with only 1" of waste. Most economical size I know of for 8x10 prints.

    Re: Human sized camera

    I don't believe a #0 is long enough to do what you wish. It is only one meter If you decide it is for you, let me know via PM, I may have one and if so it would not cost you very much.

  28. Re: What can cause TINY TINY white spots on a neg?

    "Sit in Fix for a while."
    Not agitating in the fix can allow sediment of undissolved chemicals and other materials to settle on the film. Agitation is a good thing to do until the filmis hung.
