  1. Re: Making separation negatives from color positive sheet film

    Thanks Drew. Im keen to figure out the completely darkroom-style way to do this :-)
  2. Re: Film curves and density range in reversal development

    Thanks. I'm looking into how to make carbon prints from a positive. So, it seems like I want the positives to dense and contrasty... as far as I can figure out. Which I actually think many of them...
  3. Re: Making separation negatives from color positive sheet film

    Haha :-D I'll take your word for it. Tmax 100 it is :-) Thanks!

    Nope - I have no idea how to do that... or what I need to do that.
  5. Film curves and density range in reversal development

    Hi all,

    The answer to this might be obvious, however... it is a mystery to me. Will negative films like FP4, TMAX100 or TMAX400 with long straight line curves and fairly high density ranges keep...
  6. Re: Making separation negatives from color positive sheet film

    Thanks all,

    I'm keen to get into carbon printing, but I don't want to use digital negatives. So I'm curious to know what kind of 8x10" BW sheet film would be suitable for making separation...
  7. Making separation negatives from color positive sheet film

    Hi all,

    When making separation negatives from color positive film - how important is the black and white film you will use to make these separation negatives?

    Considering costs I'd rather use...

    I agree, usually it is better to apply corrections beforehand. I guess the easiest might be, if you don't do it beforehand, is to adjust the Kelvin. I use PhotoLine instead of PhotoShop and there are...

    Wratten & HEX numbers

    Hi all,

    Is there a way to find the corresponding HEX number for a Wratten number? IE what is the HEX color of a 81A filter?

    Since Dektol is also usefull for RA-4 reversal it sounds like a useful developer option. I might give this a go :-)

    Ilford PQ Universal alternatives?

    Hey,

    This is just out of curiosity... are there any developers similar to PQ? In regards of strength, character and content? I use PQ mainly for black and white reversal development.

    Would I do that as I reversal process my BW film? Except I probably shouldn't do it in a Jobo.

    As far as I know - Jobo Germany... but I think they also say that if you have been doing it without and that works - keep doing that.
