Re: National Portrait Gallery

I can't say I've ever tried to do portraits but it's amazing how little depth of field you have with something like an 600mm F9 Apo Ronnar shot at near 1:1 I'm usually doing scarey things with tilt in the 20 to 30 degree range to get more in focus. Process lenses like the 600mm Apo Ronars and Apo Ni...

Re: Contact Printing without darkroom - options ?

I was having a look about and found some references to contact printing machines but even then you are still faced with how do you load the paper. I can not help but think one way or another you are going to need to create a darkroom tempoary or otherwise, I made myself a small darkroom if for no ot...

Re: Sergels Torg. Stockholm, Sweden.

I'm currently seeing a flickr message saying the photo is unavailable which is a pitty because I remember looking before and thinking that I liked your shot a lot not a critique I'm afraid I just simply like the image.

Re: Metering, what's gone wrong?

I used to just take a stab at what the mid-tone should be If that worked why not stick with it ? I don't mean that in a sarcastic way. I have three prefered methods of metering myself. 1, look for a nice fluffy white cloud meter off it and give +1.5 stops. Thats a widely used rule of thumb for slid...

Re: Still dreaming of 5x4

It is actually entirely possible to carry the Sinar F 5x4 cameras in a backpack the trick is in folding the standards over the rail. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3159/2985378038_058a48a472_z.jpg I find I use a 47mm and 65mm reasonably often and being able to do so on a flat board with a bag bellows...

Re: Home Processing

If you go the Jobo route the numbers can be quite confusing. The most affordable of the Jobo options would be to start out with a 2520 tank that has a cap that allows inversion or roller processing. The 2500 series is the cheapest range that has a reel that takes 5x4 that reel is the 2509n. For 35mm...
