  1. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    Forgive me my ignorance of darkroom color printing, but it seems to me to be much more challenging to effectively dodge and burn than black and white. So I would surmise that making a large digital...
  2. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    Sometimes the medium provides challenges and satisfaction that are unique. It is the experience of making the photograph and final print that is part of why I photograph.
  3. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    While I enjoy the challenges afforded by analog capture and wet printing and if the final product brings me great satisfaction when everything turns out as I like, in the end it is the final product...
  4. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    Digital or Binary is a medium by any definition of the term used in the arts.

    Re: Condenser lens in a snoot?

    I have use a honeycomb grid in front of a snoot, not sure if the light is focused enough to meet the original request. At close distance the grid pattern appears.

    Re: Reasons for using reversal film?

    Reversal film is gorgeous, but doesn't have the latitude of negative. You have to be very precise with your exposure, highlights burn out and shadows block up easily. Negatives give you more options...

    Sand bags are cheap insurance, why not use them? Have some small (10#) ones, too--they come in handy as counterweights for booms and tripods.

    C Stands are pretty versatile in the studio, I use them with a boom and Hensel heads and monolights. Don't forget to use a couple of sand bags over the legs, otherwise you're asking for trouble. And...
