    Re: Quick release recommendations...

    I use the Arca-Swiss system for all my cameras, 35mm, medium format and 4x5 field and single-rail. There are many manufacturers of heads, clamps and plates to choose from. Really Right Stuff is my...
  2. Re: Aperture used for portrait - What do you think?

    Seems like the OP wants the entire face in focus, but the background soft, from the example he cited.
  3. Re: Aperture used for portrait - What do you think?

    This may or may not help you in your quest: set up a pice of stiff material--foam core, mat board, or a piece of paper taped or glued to southing rigid. On the surface, carefully draw a series of...
  4. Re: Aperture used for portrait - What do you think?

    Depth of filed will vary with the focal length of the lens used, but will be the same for the same focal length. Maximum aperture will not affect the depth of field at any given f-stop. A 210mm 5.6...

    Re: Picked up an Automega E5 -- confused...

    I doubt the bulb is the issue. Once again I am basing my opinion on my experience with a D5. I have used the stock bulb as well as a smaller, hotter and brighter halogen bulb. The only difference I...

    Re: "All things are photographable" thread

    I have not looked at all the photos in this thread, but what strikes me as ironic is that it was based on a number of quotes by Winogrand, yet nothing looks remotely like anything he would have shot.

    Re: Picked up an Automega E5 -- confused...

    Based on the variable condenser D5, I would suggest not using the 3rd condenser at all for 4x5. It is causing the light to be focused in the center and falling off at the edges.

    Re: Best Fresnel Lens/Screens

    I bought a new Linhof factory fresnel for my Technika III from Laflex. If I remember correctly, it was a pretty striaghtforward swap, and much brighter. You could co ntact Austin at Laflex and see if...
  14. Re: Can someone help me identify this process camera?

    FWIW, an Em is not a fixed dimension, originally it was the width of the capital letter "M" of a particular typeface, then became the total line height from ascender to descender (the point size). So...

    Re: ISO Monopod Suggestions

    Also more spots where things can come loose if not properly locked down. And the bottom section tends to be pretty flimsy.

  17. Re: Famous photograph of Winston Churchill missing from Ottawa Hotel

    There is probably a lot less monkey business with dealers in photos as the prices are much less than paintings. Take the Rothko case https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rothko_case or the movie Made You...
  18. Re: Famous photograph of Winston Churchill missing from Ottawa Hotel

    In a year or so, it won't be remembered by many. The world of art dealers is rife with dishonest liars and cheats. If it was eventually obtained by such a dealer, it could probably be sold without...
  19. Re: Famous photograph of Winston Churchill missing from Ottawa Hotel

    Once again, there are multiple prints in collections and available for sale. How would one prove that one of those is the stolen one? The date of acquisition?
  20. Re: Famous photograph of Winston Churchill missing from Ottawa Hotel

    Still, it looks like no-one was the wiser, except for the frame. And the purloined print was not unique. Like Ansel Adams, many prints were made of the Churchill photo.
  21. Re: Famous photograph of Winston Churchill missing from Ottawa Hotel

    The replacement is a copy, not a fake. If the thief had been smart enough to replace the original with a copy with the same frame, or just swap the frame contents, no-one would have been the wiser....

    Re: What's With the Rodinal? Can't Find Any

    Such doomsday talk. So Rodinal is about of stock right now. It has been in the past, and supplies do show up. Be patient, it will most probably be back in stock soon.

    First of all, I assume your print is square to the paper and the image edges are perpendicular and parallel. If the carpenter's sure isn't working for you (possibly moving while being used), a paper...

  29. Re: DIY Print Squeegee improvement -- for those like me with Rube G. genes

    I have used the kind of silicone squeegee that is sold in auto parts stores for drying cars. Only big enough for 11x14" prints, though.

  30. Re: How to finish, wash and dry fibre paper prints for exhibition and sale

    I'm pretty sure Mr Friedlander does (did?) his own printing, but maybe he left the mounting to an assistant or sent it out. I would imagine some sort of custom debossing die that also allowed dry...
  31. Re: How to finish, wash and dry fibre paper prints for exhibition and sale

    Dry-mounted prints decompose slower in the landfill than other mounting methods. Keep that in mind if you are concerned about the future of the planet rather than your ego.

  37. Re: How to finish, wash and dry fibre paper prints for exhibition and sale

    I rarely dry mount prints any more. After flattening the prints in a dry mount press, I will leave them sandwiched between two large sheets of 1/4" acrylic (because that's what I have at hand) and...
  38. Re: How to finish, wash and dry fibre paper prints for exhibition and sale

    Pretty much the only way to dry prints on a screen is horizontally. I have never had any unevenness. Just remember to squeegee the prints before setting them out to dry.

  40. Re: How to finish, wash and dry fibre paper prints for exhibition and sale

    Another reason fro making test prints is fiber tends to show more dry-down effect than RC, at least in my experience. It could be because of the brighter white of the RC base. That applies to Ilford...
