    Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Peter, reading your suggestion I had one of those Homer Simpson *doh* moments.
    Self-evident in hindsight (like so many things in life).
    I was so concerned with preserving the directional "feel" of my light setup, that I forgot that the room lights would have practically no effect on the exposure, since the LED is so much brighter.
    Thank you for this!
    And my eyes thank you too

    Andrew, your light looks very nice.
    Mine is rather ghetto. It's one of those LED flood lights for outdoors.
    Very harsh by itself, but quite usable with a simple paper towel attached to its front, and a small piece of cardboard attached to its side facing the camera—to eliminate lens flare.
    (I tried a few options for diffuser material, but the plain paper towel worked best while cutting the least amount of light output—plus these lights don't get all that hot, so there is no fire hazard).
    Making what I have at hand do what I wish I had, in terms of equipment, is one of those things I take pride in.
    If I had the money, as they say… but then again I like Buckley's approach to the subject in his "Satisfied Mind".

    Frugality is natural for me, hence the use of x-ray film, the godox was a plunge into cheaper powered led lighting (60w) after watching a few you tube vids, the parabolic was a "christmas present to self".
    Anyways, your result looks pretty damn good.

    That's where covering some cardboard with aluminum / aluminium foil to use as a reflector on the shadow side comes in. ;-b

    Film-folk.com sometimes has rodinal. Fotofabrik sells their own version of Rodinal which they call Parodinal. YMMV.
