    Re: Aspect ratio of 10x8 and 5x4?

    One doesn't -- for even tray development, sheet film should be processed in trays at least the next size up. So you can do the 8x10 sheets in a 14x11 tray with no problems.

    Re: Canson Platine - edges discoloring

    I would say incomplete clearing. The chemicals entered into the paper deeper thru the cut edges and thus not did not clear as fast as the rest of the paper.

    Seems like most sheet film boxes are printed to be viewed in portrait mode. Do they make any boxes for landscape mode?

  8. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    It is a story long in the making. Thomas has had to sell this story many times over the years in order to get funding and all of that. How can it not get romantized in his own mind? A touch of Don...

    What are we looking at that tells you they are over-exposed? And what constitute a problem in this case? I have no practical experience with wet plate.

    That is why I though a bellows test would be the place to start - if by any chance they are actually light-tight, there is hope for it as a pinhole camera. Some work would have to be done on the...

    I think the first thing to do is to do a bellows test (to see if they are light-tight). If they are not, then you'd probably be better trying a different camera. But I would look into turning it...

    Wonderful image.

    And AlexGard's tree images have the same feel as the after-the-battle imagery of the US Civil War. There is a stillness in them that denotes death and stopped time.
