  6. Washaid: effective differnce between bisulfite and metabisulfite

    I happen to have sodium metabisulfite on hand. I can't remember why; it must be for something I needed to mix up a good while ago, unless someone gave it to me with some other things.

    D2 lens cone question

    I use a diffusion head on my D2.

    As I recall, the recommended lens cone for a 150mm lens is longer than the 3" one for a 135, which is what I have. If were to get a 150, it seems that I could...

  13. Re: what bright! LED bulbs are you using inside a softbox?

    Perhaps I should qualify my interest in the SmallRig 120.

    My interest is B&W natural (as much as possible) light portraits, preferably in 4x5, on location, which frequently means interiors. I...

  18. Re: Grayish whites and other problems in my new darkroom

    I'm not sure about the yellow tint you report, but it may suggest weak fixer. The fogged whites could be due to the hot storage and X-ray scan -- checked bags get heavy doses. However, your multiple...
