  1. Re: How To Create Dense & Contrasty Film Negs For Alt Prints?

    Read the publication by Ellie Young. I provided a link. She goes into great detail about her process for producing the optimal negative for salt printing using FP4 and a Pyro developer, specifically...

  4. Re: How To Create Dense & Contrasty Film Negs For Alt Prints?

    Last fall I went in pursuit of the same goals - to make the ideal negatives for salt printing. I studied what materials I could and found many of the same ideas repeated. That includes: use FP4, not...

    Re: Will pull help me with this image

    Rodinal is doing you no favors. Its a poor choice to pair with Delta emulsions. You fry the high values.

    Re: 300mm Rodagon with Slight Edge Fungus

    It is possible (likely?) that the retaining ring is lacquered in place (many time, this is the case), and so a couple drops of acetone would soften the lacquer and allow for removal of the ring. This...
  8. Re: Ilford Photo 2022 Film Photographers Survey

    Oh come on, it’s not like a simple survey is required to “see” each and every one of us in all our endless complexity. They just want a glimpse into what their customers need and expect.

    Re: Anyone buy a camera from Intrepid this year (2022) and how long did it take?

    Last July I bought the 5x7 Intrepid. It took maybe 3-4 weeks longer than the estimate, but that was way better than when I bought the 8x10 two years earlier. I expect you should add a month to their...
  10. Re: Bergger pancro 400 in bergspeed: Unseen base fog

    I think you can be pretty certain that the unpleasant skin tones are the result of severe under exposure. Pancro 400 actually has a bit extra red sensitivity, in my experience

    Re: Photoshop Free Online

    Photoshop Express used to be a free iPhone app. Then they killed it and took it away. Now they want us back, taunting us with a “free” 14 day trial?? No, I don’t think so. Middle finger to you, Adobe.

    Re: Anyone else here on Instagram?

    I'm looking at grainery.app as an alternative to Instagram now. It appears to be much more geared towards sharing of images that originate solely from film.
  13. Re: Bergger pancro 400 in bergspeed: Unseen base fog

    If you're using Pancro 400 in sheet film formats (not 120 or 35mm) then its almost irrelevant which developer you choose, since grain isn't going to be conspicuous no matter what. Rodinal delivers...

    Yep, it’s a terrible combo. Friends don’t let friends develop Pancro 400 in Rodinal!
  15. Re: Bergger pancro 400 in bergspeed: Unseen base fog

    Pancro 400 has a much greater fog base than most any other modern film. Doesn't matter what you develop it in, its got serious base density. You may find you get less base+fog if you expose at 160...
  16. Re: Developing Litho film with lower contrast

    I experimented last year with the Arista Ortho film paired with D-23 diluted 1:3 and got very decent "pictorial" contrast.
