  1. Re: Wet Plate Collodion questions answered here.

    Much better!
    So yes - towards the end of the day, an hour makes a big difference in the amount of UV in the scene, so your results are not surprising.

    As for the dark spots and uneven areas,...

    I hope you'll let us know how the next plates work! Good luck.
  3. Re: Wet Plate Collodion questions answered here.

    I suspect your results so far are affected by a combination of all of the issues I mentioned: exposure, developer temperature and age of the collodion (yes, that is very well aged collodion you've...
  4. Re: Wet Plate Collodion questions answered here.

    I'm familiar with the B&S kit. I am going to assume you've been sent Old Workhorse Collodion, which is an excellent recipe, but not always the fastest. I've had problems in the past with B&S selling...
  5. Re: Wet Plate Collodion questions answered here.

    Please provide details about how you are exposing these plates. Are you using strobes, or daylight? (If strobes, how much power are you using?) How are you estimating exposure? How long are you...

    Welcome to the forum, and kudos on that beautiful photograph! I'm not familiar with the Industar 11-M. Is it normally a soft focus lens?

    Re: H&D Curve for Stand Development?

    I experimented with Rodinal semi-stand development and 8x10 negatives years ago, and got some of the worst negatives I've ever seen: uneven development, blotches, marks, hot spots, etc. Never again....

    Jim, the 203mm Kodak Ektar f7.7 lens is one of the best lenses ever made for large format work. Its inexpensive and its a superior performer. It can often be had in a fully functional shutter for...

    OK, if you are making prints on THAT scale, then you'll get better results from an 8x10 negative. However, you will still get an amazing print that size from a GOOD 4x5 negative made on a film like...

    Re: Film Storage accident

    Agreed. If you are going to cold store film, it should be sealed in bags or some kind of plastic boxes to prevent moisture getting near the packaging.
  29. Re: I'm not sure if it's a popular size, but can I get some 5x7 camera recommendation

    I rarely take my 8x10 Deardorff out anymore, precisely because it is too heavy to truck up and down steep terrains.

  34. Re: 5x7 B&J no longer focusing correctly - why?

    Mike, mine has the same hardware configuration, and I’ve become very careful in making sure those levers are snug after I’ve changed the back orientation. It’s an issue with this design.
  35. Re: 5x7 B&J no longer focusing correctly - why?

    It appears you were right, and the bent screw on the springs mechanism was contributing just enough slop on one corner to throw off the focus. I have some test film I'm about to scan to verify the...
  36. Re: 5x7 B&J no longer focusing correctly - why?

    I've inspected the back, and I discovered that one of the screws that the pressure springs attach to at the insert end was quite bent, and no longer holding that spring in tension at the "parked"...
  37. Re: 5x7 B&J no longer focusing correctly - why?

    I have only one 5x7 plate holder (Chamonix), so its the same one I've been using all along.
  38. Re: 5x7 B&J no longer focusing correctly - why?

    I've inspected closely and I don't see anything that would act as an obstruction.
  39. Re: 5x7 B&J no longer focusing correctly - why?

    There is no stopping down with this lens - its used wide open.
    I've tested other lenses and found the same thing occurs with them all, and stopping down doesn't entirely fix the problem.
  40. Re: 5x7 B&J no longer focusing correctly - why?

    Voigtlander Petzval, approx f3.5
    I don't know its focal length - never bothered to measure. As you can see, it doesn't cover 5x7.
