  1. Re: Making collodion negatives for Salt Printing.

    Have you gotten Chris Anderson’s book Salted Paper Printing? It has a lot of information.

    Re: Mounting gels behind the lens, 4x5

    I did that using small pieces of wood. It worked just fine. Glad you found Fred’s instructions. - my drawing ability is not very good.

    Re: Mounting gels behind the lens, 4x5

    Fred Picker made a little U-shaped piece from spring steel. It extended a bit farther back than the rear lens element. He used a magnet to hold the filter gel in place behind the lens.

    Those PSA rules camera clubs use drive me crazy. A landscape cannot contain the hand of man. Tell that to Edward Weston.

    DLee, nothing at all wrong with those. Many recommend them. In fact, it’s good to start with standard chemicals. Change them only when and if you need something different.

    Re: Paper negatives

    My original plenum is plastic. I made another from aquarium air line tubing and glued it down to pieces of an under gravel filter to provide the distance above the tank bottom.
