    Yes, actually. I've been keeping my eye out for some.

    Yes! I have a WTB thread on the For Sale area.

    Again on Fuji HR-T rated 160, but I've switched to Ilfotec DD at 1:31 in drum, constant agitation for 3-1/2 mins. Taken with 9-1/2" Dagor @f22.

    Here's a detail scanned at 2400dpi, actual pixels (I need a new scanner!):

    Nice are you stripping the negatives? Wondering how you'd do this without any scratches.

    Here's an old image, re-scanned properly since I didn't have a working scanner at the time and just did a contact print and posted that. Thinking about printing this one pretty big (40x32) for a competition/gallery show coming up.



    Fuji HR-T, ISO 50, Rodinal 1:100, stripped.

    Hot damn! (Pardon my French) That's gorgeous! I'd love to see the enlargement!

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    I've got to get out of my office chair and go process some xray film that I took yesterday evening. More tests, but some students saw me and I offered to take a quick "snapshot" of them with the camera. I'll post it, if it looks decent.

    Going to just try Rodinal 1:100 today at 6 min.

    Yes, I'm stripping. Not particularly well, as you can see from the dark spots on the bottom of the photo. I place the neg good side-down on clean dry glass, and rub the rear with a kitchen sponge with pure bleach. The dark spots are because if the glass isn't 100% dry (say, because I've just stripped another neg and haven't dried it completely), some of the bleach gets sucked onto the emulsion of the good side by capillary action. I'm experimenting with different ways of fixing the film while I strip, as any motion at all greatly accelerates the leaching onto the good side. So far my best method involves putting a few drops of water in the center of the glass before laying the film on top. Tape is time-consuming and doesn't allow a quick wash if the bleach goes somewhere it's not supposed to. I keep the faucet running just in case.

    This does mean washing and hanging to dry twice, once after dev. and once after stripping. I'm getting better with scratches, the good side is protected in the drum and the scratches to the back side come off with the emulsion. Same for trays, if I develop good side-up, any scratches to the bottom from rubbing the tray (!) come off when I strip.

    Corran, this looks almost like IR film to my eye. What colour is this film sensitive to? Did you use any filtration?
    Magnificent image to my eye - good luck with the competition!

    Thanks!
