  1. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Ah got it!! It's a brand spanking new bottle so I hope not.
  2. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I hope my HD doesn't die, but I'm not sure what an HD is. I scan and print on an Epson R800, I haven't used an enlarger in 25 years.
  3. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I used Ilford rapid fix, water stop bath.
  4. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Mine are not nearly so brown, but held up side by side to a Rodinal neg they are surely different. Just a bit warmer.
  5. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I used a water stop bath only. Hmmm I'll have to look when I get home. I don't recall them looking any different but then again it was midnight and I wanted to get to bed so washed and hung.
  6. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Thank you for that information, that's helpful. Now, I have a really dumb question. Are you supposed to be able to see the stain or the negatives look different? They look pretty standard to me. I...
  7. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    You mean scan all 4 together on the bed like one large 8x10 negative?? Never thought of that. Also, I went by the MDC and anything I could find out on line and the times I used were based on those,...
  8. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Spot metering, in this case I metered the roof which is a slate gray so somewhat neutral 18% gray. Develop, scan and print to R2400 or R800 printers. I keep notes on everything so will work from...
  9. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I think there's a little confusion here. I developed these and I scanned the negatives on an Epson V850 flat bed using VueScan software with little to no adjustment. I didn't put "Delta" in a film...
  10. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I did nothing in post processing such as color correction and some of it is in the upload maybe because printed out on paper with the right profile the Rodinal one is rich black and neutral but the...
  11. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Photos are smaller than I anticipated. I resized to 5MP, should have gone larger. Anyways, it was -5 wind chill when I took these again for some beginning testing. You can see the puplish cast in...

  13. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I'm at work now. I have trouble uploading a full size image for some reason. I'll try later. They are pictures of a barn and for test purposes but I can try to upload later.
  14. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Here's an update. I developed two sheets each of Delta 100, one at 50ISO, one at 100ISO as follows

    1. Rodinal 1:100 as per MDC and their recommended 18 minutes with agitation 10 seconds every 5...
  15. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Thank you for this detailed approach which I had not seen. I am doing 4 sheets total, but only two at a time.
  16. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Thank you Andrew. I'll try a few things this weekend and post back.
  17. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I had studied Ken Lee and other scanning tutorials and I found some improvement when using "neutral" rather than the film specific setting on my 850. But its just something about the gradation in...
  18. Re: SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    Thank you Koraks. I will be scanning all negatives so not sure if that makes a difference.
  19. SP445 tank processing Delta100 and Pyrocat HD help please

    I posted on another thread about blown highlights with Delta 100 and Rodinal. I am just not happy with the results in tonality (1:50) I have a ton of Delta 100 so that's not changing. I have...
  20. Re: Contrast control with Delta 100 and Rodinal

    I appreciate everyone's advice, I ordered Pyrocat yesterday and it's on the way from PF. Sometimes it takes me a while to learn the obvious. I've struggled with Delta 100 and Rodinal in 35mm, 120...
  21. Re: Contrast control with Delta 100 and Rodinal

    Hmmmm..... I like somewhat grain free landscapes. I don't usually print larger than 17x22 but I guess I should try out "cool" : )
  22. Re: Contrast control with Delta 100 and Rodinal

    Am i likely to notice much increase in grain with a higher dilution?
  23. Contrast control with Delta 100 and Rodinal

    Hi, I'm shooting Delta 100 4x5 and using Rodinal 1:50 per MD Chart 14 minutes. I shoot at ISO 80. I have noted in some images I lack tonal separation or blown out highlights. Kind of blocked up or...
  24. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Ted I thank you
  25. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Haha thank you Bruce. I'm gonna go take pictures now.
  26. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    For all the bad things I've read about flat bed scanners, this V850 has impressed me very much.
  27. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Thank you Bill. As someone once said "There are many paths to the Buddha.." I feel like just taking photos and stopping testing already. But I'm getting there, getting a little bit blown out...
  28. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Pere, I'm not scanning in Auto mode. But in PS I do NOT have that option on the eyedropper to select 16 bit for some reason? I have the latest version of CC.

    Forget it, found it. Thank you.
  29. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    This hybrid thing is tough for me, since I came from the traditional wet print. I just did what Pere recommended, and sampling my wedge in PS, I see there are differences in those steps but they are...
  30. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Thank you Pere. I didn't see that table on the Stouffer website. I'll double check everything i'm doing, I appreciate it!
  31. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Pere,

    I'm a little confused. The T2115 has .15 steps (1/2 stop) so am not following your math. But there is another issue I'm having using SilverFast and Epson V850, and that is when I scan the...
  32. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    I did another test while waiting for the step wedge and BTZS book. Just 30 seconds longer development and a little bit more agitation totally blew out my highlights. I'm not so sure I like Delta in...
  33. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Pere and Ken thank you very much. This is about the 10th recommendation for that book so it looks like I'm ordering it. Very helpful, and Ken, thank you for the link.
  34. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Thank you Doremus, good advice. I always get a bit confused about messing with the histogram in the scan preview. Seems the more I mess with things, they worse they get. I can always send a few...
  35. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    I should also quantify that by saying scanning these test negatives gives more of a zone lower than I anticipated for higher zones, without any exposure or shadoow/highlight adjustment in Lightroom. ...
  36. Re: Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    Thank you. What I did was shoot at ISO 80 and cut down development and agitation a bit, so will do the next roll with a little longer time and same agitation. Thank you. I want to be out of the...
  37. Determining film speed in a hybrid workflow

    I understand well enough about development and zones with shooting/developing. It's when it comes to scanning that it falls apart for me. I found with my Rodinal and Delta 100 I get a good Zone 1...
  38. Re: Justin Lowery, the best landscape photographer of the current times?

    There was no offense intended. I'm Italian, so yeah, it was tongue in cheek with the Jersey reference (all of my Jersey friends get it without crying about it). And the point of the story was...

    Re: Sekonic L758 Spot Meter Question

    So Alan, if you scan around the scene and see -1.0 EV or +2.0EV, is that one zone lower and two higher, respectively? Roughly? That would make sense, I'm in my office playing with that right now.

    Re: Sekonic L758 Spot Meter Question

    I have an L858 that was free to me from a research project we did in our office. I hate the damn thing. Too many menus and buttons and they touch screen isn't that great. Thank you for this...
