Re: X Ray Film

I went through a period where I woudn't shoot skies, for the same reason, blotching. There aren't many options for xray, you have to be so careful not to scratch. I bought a mod54 out of desperation, still was no good for xray, so I made a few mods on it. Now it occasionaly drops a sheet, but is gen...

Re: Still Life Red Roses with x-ray film

Thanks Bazz, apologies for crashing your thread, but this was one roll I tried and the colours were pretty good. I must admit I did not do the developing, I used "Micheals", they still do all the processes

Sandy Barrie

I am aiming more at the queensland large format enthusiasts, but I would like to know if any of you know of Sandy Barrie. I met him briefly when I lived on the gold coast for a short period of time.

Re: X Ray Film

Re: X Ray Film

I hear you Bazz! I have had a couple of packs of Ilford FP4 plus 125 secreted away for my trip to Canada, but I enjoy the challenge of xray, and the rewards of producing a scratchless negative that needs no post developing work is a great feeling.

Re: X Ray Film
