    Re: Broncolor Flash Pack Bonanza

    Now I'm getting really discouraged. I was counting on selling my Paul Buff mono package for several hundred but the prices you cite are ridiculous. Ouch.

    Hi, Doremus. I'm still a bit stumped, after another couple of tests, but still working on it. I just mixed a fresh batch of developer, in case I did make a mistake in the last batch. Not sure how I...

    Thanks to all. My metol easily passes the color test.

    Part of my problem is that I am switching to the LED from a coldlight, which I was using sans 40Y, so it tended to be a bit contrasty to...

    Re: Best choice portrait BW film

    Califmike, the point about light levels may be worth considering. If, like me, you intend to work in available light when not in the studio, a faster film like HP5+ may be called for. That's what I...
