    Re: Still Life 2022

    Paul, that’s beautiful. Is that an actual location, or a very nicely done studio setup?
  2. Re: DIY Print Squeegee improvement -- for those like me with Rube G. genes

    Well, I’m in the minority here. I never squeegee my prints. I just hang them up to dry. Never noticed any ill effects from this, but after reading these posts, I think I’ll try it and compare a dried...

    Large format at Jan. 6 hearing

    I noticed a gray-haired photographer milling around the witness table with 4x5 film holders sticking out of a jacket pocket and carrying what looked like a Linhof or an old Speed Graphic in one hand....

    I love this thread. I’ve just looked at some of my “rejects” with more forgiving eyes.

    Re: would flashing help me in this situation?

    Chester, in my opinion, your darkroom print looks fine. But I know how niggling things like that can drive one crazy.

    Re: Filtering for a deep red filter

    [QUOTE=Drew Wiley;1645129]Everything depends on the specifics. For example, what do you mean by deep red? 24A isn't as deep as a 25; 29 is deeper still, and some brands deeper than others. That...

    Keeping or tossing prints?

    In the course of a typical darkroom session, I’ll wind up with multiple prints, trying to arrive at the “perfect” one. The so-called “work prints” aren’t especially bad, but they exhibit flaws that...

    Well, it looks as if this whole thing was operator error on my part. I just gave it another go and was able to attach my cheapish Lumopro softbox to the Speedotron/Chimera speed ring. Timid fellow...
