    Re: How Deep Do You Dustbust 2021

    I clean up dust on scans of prints by adding a curves layer with an s-shaped curve. This makes the dust very apparent and I use the healing brush to clean up the original layer. As a precaution, I...

    Re: Not DIY Curtains for a darkroom

    When I went shopping for black-out curtains, I took along a small flashlight to see how well they block light. Not all do.

    It all depends on why you are dating the print. Is it for your reference, or to conform to a standard among collectors and curators? If for yourself, use whatever makes sense to you. Curators seem to...

  9. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    My Hensel monolights weigh in at about 2kg. I would hesitate to use them on a spindly stand over 120 cm high. If you do get a cheap stand just use it at 3/4 or less extension. Are you planning to use...

    Re: Yellow, Orange, Red Filter Factors?

    Just shoot some film with the factor as specified and the metered-through-the-filter reading (not always accurate, by the way) and maybe bracket, too.

  13. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Sandbags just drape over one leg or the strut of the stand, best if neither end of the bag actually touches the ground. Multiple bags can be used if the light is heavy, has a large softbox or on a...
  14. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    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.
  15. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    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...

    Re: Best 1/4" to 3/8" adapter?

    I have the opposite problem: most adapters are too long and protrude beyond the camera base. Also, I prefer ana adapter that has a slot cut into it so I can remove it with a flat-blade screwdriver.

    Re: Paint your negative carrier in black

    Anodizing would be ideal, but my understanding is it can be quite expensive for a small part like a negative carrier--there is minimum charge for the process.
