    I doubt the Barrina lights emit the harmful uv rays as they are designed for use in a room with people in it. It still makes sense to not spend time staring directly at the lights. My setup has the...

    Re: Uva alt print box

    You did good. Did you use the jumpers supplied with them to link several bars together So you have fewer plugs to deal with? I did mine in sets of two so I had four plugs run into a power strip.

  11. Re: What can cause TINY TINY white spots on a neg?

    A coffee filter will help in many cases of floating particulates. If you dont have a filter funnel scrounge a filter holder from an old drip coffee maker, could even use the glass pot.

    Film holder might have lifted a bit when pulling the darkslide. Dark cloth catching would have messed up the focus.

    Ultrachrome inks are pretty hardy, one of the reasons for its development is fade resistance. You might ask Epson for an opinion on the subject.

    Watch getting into situations where you damage the plants, such as tearing the leaves and vines or digging the roots. That how my immunity went away, a large enough dose of urishiol will do you in.

    Possibly the easiest step is to put the negs in a tray of hypo clear after fixing to allow the backside to clean up. Then do your wash in the tray.
  39. Re: How do you remove silver nitrate stains?

    There was a product called developer system cleaner that was basically dichromate bleach. Stands to reason if you have any C41 bleach handy you can try that then scrub it with fixer and rinse.
