    Re: Still life - DOF problem

    I always found diffraction on film highly overrated, If your goal is to make a contact print, I'd guestimate 1/3 of the way from the closest flower to the wall and stop down to F64.

    If enlarging,...

    Re: Is Steve Hopf still active?

    Fresnels are a pain when photographing in the rain.

    When you switch lenses or when it starts coming down steadily and water get in between the gg and the fresnel you basically can't see a thing.

    Thanks, it's actually just a plywood cover with a decorative screen made by the landlords father to hide the cheap looking gas heater. But cool that it can make you remember Brooklyn.

  14. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    Huh, my experience would lead me to disagree with that wholeheartedly. I'm not basing anything on heavy duty maths from kodak from the 1950s or the evolution of motion picture film, although I agree...
  15. Re: The Camera and Technique of Andreas Gursky (Then And Now)

    A properly exposed chrome will beat the same speed color negative in terms of less grain and more sharpness. I use color negative because it's lower contrast, way more dynamic range, way more...

    when you scan the film directly on the glass, I'm sure I read somewhere that focus plane is around 1/16th of an inch thick. Do some searches on here, lots of commentary about this in the past. You...

  27. Re: How do you convert a color negative after you scan it?

    I guess it's a question of semantics. Yeah I'm voting for letting the software do the conversion. Whether it's epson scan, or any other software. I've never used Vue scan.

    Peace I'm out
  28. Re: How do you convert a color negative after you scan it?

    If these 2 things are true, I think you are scanning the negative as a positive.

  29. Re: How do you convert a color negative after you scan it?

    Well I can't convert you, and would gain nothing by trying. But here goes.
