    Re: New member from Italy

    Benvenuto!

    One of the wonderful characteristics of little children is that they grow, and as they do, they become more susceptible to being photographed with large format cameras, something...

  3. Re: question re metering for zone III and overexposing HP5+ a little

    I would add my voice to suggesting that a little more information would be helpful.

    Re: post your trees!

    Gabe, well done. Looks to me like a brontosaurus neck or something on the left, i.e., animate. The play of branches in the foreground is excellent.

    Re: Zone IV antique enlarger head

    I can only speak for mine, which uses a 16x16-LED RGB panel. With the aid of a borrowed 21-step Stouffer transmission wedge and guidance from here, I was able to find a balance of RGB that gives an...

    Re: Omega Reference Scales and more

    The 45E and F both had removeable Graflock backs; the F rotated. The removal mechanism on the F, probably on the E, was the two spring-loaded "saw" ridged outcropping (for lack of a better term) on...

    My flattening press is made of two pieces of Formica-covered flat cabinet wood that I found one day in excellent shape. It's just over 15"x20". It was one piece, which my neighbor sawed in two for me...
  15. Re: How to finish, wash and dry fibre paper prints for exhibition and sale

    Just two additions here and one to come.

    Toning some VC papers can yield a subtle split toned effect, because the two emulsions respond to the toner at different rates. I have not used the...

    I happen to have sodium metabisulfite on hand. I can't remember why; it must be for something I needed to mix up a good while ago, unless someone gave it to me with some other things.

    D2 lens cone question

    I use a diffusion head on my D2.

    As I recall, the recommended lens cone for a 150mm lens is longer than the 3" one for a 135, which is what I have. If were to get a 150, it seems that I could...
