  1. Re: Safe/Legitimate Resource for Nude Models - LF Project

    Where are you located? I know of at least one model in the SF/Santa Cruz area, she may be able to put you in touch with others.
  2. Re: Getting the correct lens settings for a synced strobe?

    Actually, aperture will depend on the light-to-subject distance. Use a flash meter. And a digital camera is a great tool for judging the lighting, maybe not all that accurate to use as a meter.

  6. Re: Best Way to Send the Most Accurate Copies of Fine Prints to Publishers?

    Just perusing the page that you linked, you come the the statement "we publish books for hire." Meaning they get paid by the photographer/author/artist to publish the book. I don't even know if they...
  7. Re: Best Way to Send the Most Accurate Copies of Fine Prints to Publishers?

    What you seem to be asking is at cross-purposes. The scanners you mention are for scanning negatives, yet you state that you have prints. I will assume you did some darkroom work on these prints and...
  8. Re: Color separation negatives - CMYK no digital?

    The problem is the CMYK workspace is only a simulation. Monitors are RGB.

    It was a nice day at the Rock Store, and the other roads in the area. Although this was a few years back, I recall the views from some of the canyon roads were spectacular as always.

    Re: LED darkroom bulbs?

    I can't agree more. It is amazing that folks are willing to risk hours of darkroom work for the sake of saving a few bucks on an iffy safelight.

    Re: Polarisation Filter

    I use polarizing filters on lights in combination with a polarizer on the camera for copying paintings. Just need to watch out for color shifts due to the polarizer.

    Re: Polarisation Filter

    B+W states their polarizing filter factor as 2 to 3 (1 to 1.5 stops), not as a single factor. They also suggest not using a focal length less than 28mm in FF 35mm format, for an even effect.

    You might try Spectra (http://www.spectracine.com/repair.html) but you might also shop for a new meter, depending on the cost of repair and calibration plus shipping.
