    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Nice. One of the things I'm finding particularly easy to make happen with x-ray film is glowing highlights, which I really like.
    Thanks, but I'd rather just watch:

    And encouraging me to do more photography b/c she knows I like it.

    I've exposed and developed to produce higher density for salt prints. I actually like the glowing highlights in this scan but the neg will perform best with an alternative POP (hopefully)

    that is really nice!

    Generalizations are made because they are Generally true...

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    There are other differences, but basically blue is mildly orthochromatic, green is more orthochromatic, and Kodak Ektascan is the most orthochromatic of all x-ray films. It is also backed with an anti light-scattering material. It costs twice as much as other x-ray films. Orthochromatic means "all colors", and it looked like it was compared to "ordinary film", but it still couldn't record red. Then came panchromatic film which does record tones of red.

    Also... And more importantly

    Green = 400ASA
    Blue = 100ASA

    Half or double is just that, so green half speed is 200ASA

    For some reason I'm doubting the Blue speed, it's possible Blue is 200 and Half Speed Blue is 100.... Sorry for the cryptic info, green is definitely 400...

    I don't mean to tell people what to shoot it at, I'm telling you the rated (by the manufacturer) speed of the film, your exposure index is your own business
