  1. Re: Marketing Platinum Portraits in 11x14 , Is this posible and then How?

    Wow, how do you get these really bright whites? I only get as bright as the silver is, which is more like a light gray.

    Taking film in and out of the freezer

    I would say it can depend in exactly how it’s done, meaning, how well you remove air, humidity levels, etc.
    You could easily do a worst case test for your own case by taking 5 or so sheets and...

  5. Re: Cross Processing out dated Transparency and Negative in E6 and C41

    You probably are already thinking this, but you can do multiples exposures per sheet (4 easily, even 5) by sliding the dark slide.

    Sleeves for 4 x 10 negatives.

    I got earlier today the 4x12 that were recommended above by Konakoa and they work great — a quick trimming and they’re perfect for 4x10. It’s $12.49 for a 25 pack on Amazon

    Re: Sleeves for 4 x 10 negatives.

    I use 8x10 ones…. Just fit 2 side by side. They don’t slide easily so it works for me.

  8. Re: What is the best type of Silver Nitrate to buy

    UVP sells 1L premixed at 9% for $126 (would translate into $140 for 100 g). It’s already iodized and I don’t need to buy a bottle, it comes in one already. Ready to go — no need to adjust pH or...
  9. Re: Film Developing Rant and CineStill DF96 Monobath - Am I Lazy?

    I think you can modulate your analog/digital load depending on the amount of work you want.

    If you’re going to shoot 45 rolls for a project, maybe go digital for that one. If another one is likely...

  21. Opinion: Would a 90mm f8 or f6.8 lens be too dark for dawn and dusk landscape?

    Let’s see…. Yes I find F8 too dark to focus reliably in low light conditions. F5.6 is much better. I don’t typically use many f6.8 lenses in those situations. And I have a good and bright fresnel.
