    Re: Large 4x5 film holder case

    Nice. I already adapted something similar that comfortably holds my 14 holders, but it was more work. A useful share.

    DIY behind-the-lens gel filter holder

    For those interested, this is my adaptation of Fred Pickerís design for a gel holder. My appreciation goes to several forum members who responded to my request for a source for banding steel (which...

  7. Re: How can I construct an inexpensive accent-light holder?

    Steve, thank you. I have a mic stand, since I do some recording occasionally, but it is heavier and bulkier than my old PIC stands mentioned in my OP. One or two of those are a simple carry to...

  10. Re: How can I construct an inexpensive accent-light holder?

    Thank you. Graeme. As indicated in my original post, I will use the flashlights for accent lights in interiors, so the porch light will be for other occasions. I am not in any way a fan of Avedon,...

    Some of the small, inexpensive LED flashlights have gotten sufficiently powerful that I have ordered a couple to use as accent lights in interior location portraiture. They can be focused from flood...

    The Wratten Mystery, or, What's My Factor?

    This is one probably of the older-timers.

    Having recently purchased a set of Wratten gels, I took the #38 blue out to see what it might do for our clematis. I gave it a factor of 2 just looking by...
