    Re: Reciprocity and reducing development

    With my alt processes, I like the look of my prints from negatives that have 'hefty' shadows...some small clear areas, but lots of information in the shadows. This increases my exposure times, of...

    Re: How Much Have We Accomplished?

    Somewhat busy, with a winter coming that I am sure I will make the most of my powers to procrastinate. Seriously behind cataloging and storing negatives...need more clamshell boxes for 5x7, 8x10,...

    Some of us use normal development, or even more, to increase the contrast! One of Sexton's "Quiet Light" tricks.

    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    Then it might pay to pay attention. Get the right Chamonix F2, and there is no problem with this...just a single knob in the back for focus -- geared movement, pretty sweet. My Chamonix 11x14 has...

    If the adjustment knob did not turn while tightening the other knob, then the standard did not move and focus is preserved. And always double check after tightnening -- no reason to just hope.

    I think the Cambo has a number scale on its rail, so using that last method I mentioned above should be quick and easy to get your standards in a good starting position.

  14. Re: Techniques/Procedure for front tilt and focusing

    I work differently. I see a point where you might be giving yourself some issues.
