    Re: Lupex Paper

    I'm looking at the actual print, it is not green and has a contrast that I find appealing. It also has the "glow" that I associate with silver chloride paper and Amidol. Both of the prints in the...

    Re: Lupex Paper

    I have a print from a digital negative by Tim Layton using Lupex and in a variation of Weston's amidol recipe, I think. It has citric acid.

    That's the first time I have seen that view. Is it from the steps at the front gate, or a ground view from the yard? Very nice.

    Re: Light weight 810 system

    So at 25lbs (with 3 holders)you have all that you need except food and snacks. That seems pretty good to me. Not back packing for a week good, but traveling a few miles on foot to get a shot good.
