  1. Re: 60 Rare Authentic Native American Photos You Must See Before You Die

    None of that malarkey in South Dakota. I personally know some who participate in pow wows and have photo's a few and chatted with them.

    Re: How to imitate the contrast of wet plate

    Wet plate has about five stops of dynamic range. Another thing is it's only sensitive to blue light.

    Totally agree with Vaughn. You can't use the 4x5 holders you already have from the Graphlex, or are those not the standard type? Buy a couple modern holders. They are cheap enough.

  21. Re: Voigtlander No.6 petzval in 1857: a case study and catalogs before 1857

    Interesting info. I have three early Voightlanders, 1847, 1862, 1865. I generally use them stopped down a bit. Often f8. That should negate the shift on the 1847 lens?
