Re: Observations on staying home.

During the lockdown I used my 8x10 in our home studio, but I fast ran out of inspiration there :) Last weekend I took my 4x5 out for a quick architectural shoot on a quiet Sunday morning, that's the first time I've used my LF gear away from home since these troubles began. Hopefully I'll get into th...

Re: Filters for large format lenses

There's also the option of a filter "system", such as Lee or Cokin. For example http://leefilters.com/index.php/camera/system (that page shows it being used on 35mm equipment, but it also works with medium format and large format). The basic idea is that you use a holder which clips to you...

Re: Negative Negatives!

It's great to see that improvement, gerronemo. They say that you learn more by making mistakes, and it seems that you're now heading in the right direction. And pyrohamish is doing great for someone that's only 10 sheets in. There's a lot more variables (and hence things to go wrong) with large form...

Re: Negative Negatives!

Hi Gerry, Lachlan's suggestions are very good. You mentioned you're using the SP445; I've never used that tank myself (I'm using a Jobo), but I see there's some hints and tips on the SP445 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTrtU0bhArQ including agitation. As Lachlan has suggested, it could be an ag...

Re: Missing In Action

Hi Walter,

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. I'm sure I speak on the behalf of all the forum regulars in wishing you a speedy recovery, and hopefully back to photography before too long.

Oscar.

Mt Lofty

This was taken at Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens a couple of years ago. I do print most of my better negatives, but this one is scanned from a negative using an Epson V800. Taken with a Chamonix 045F1 with a 125mm lens (from memory!).

The View Camera Gathering 2019

It's on again soon: http://www.goldstreetstudios.com.au/workshops/?ee=511

I've yet to attend one of these myself, it's a bit tricky logistically for me, but it sounds like a worthwhile event.

Forum hosting change

I'm moving the hosting of this forum to a different service (but with the same provider) in the early hours of tomorrow (Sunday, 23rd September). Hopefully this goes smoothly in which case no-one should notice any change. But just in case something goes wrong and we end up temporarily off the air, a...

Re: Forum spammers

I hope to try a temporary fix later today, we'll see how that goes. The fundamental issue is that the installation of this forum software has long been very broken which makes it very difficult to properly upgrade. When I get time (hah!) I intend to set up an all-new system in parallel and then migr...
