Re: I wonder if I am toning down a tad today??

That beach front textures is wonderful. The ability to make the light coloured building render appear light coloured, but still stand out from the light coloured background, implies you are on top of your game. What really lifts it above the ordinary for me though, is that it appears one can have an...

Re: Peregian Beach House.

Maris, I sort of guessed that there may have been more to the evenness of the picture than at first appeared. As a long time darkroom addict, I usually know what needs edge burning and what doesn’t. Funnily enough, C41 colour prints were easier to do than panchromatic B&W prints from the same ne...

Re: Peregian Beach House.

Hmm, use the Toyo 45 monorail. I wondered about that, I thought a 75mm would just get in, but I wasn’t too sure about a 65mm. I used Toyo monorails reasonably extensively for a period in the late eighties through to the early nineties. The same base camera but in two variants, 4x5” and 8x10”. From m...

Re: Peregian Beach House.

I like the placement of the water outlet at virtually dead centre, the movement of the outside foliage gives an indication of the exposure length. I wonder though how much coverage you will have to allow you to drop the front down, great idea, but I wouldn't have thought there was that much coverage...

Re: Supplies of chemicals in Australia?

I wondered about the pricing of Phenidone, so I checked various places and ways of obtaining it from around the world. It sort of appears that Vanbar is at the correct pricing structure from what I saw. Seems anything between $59 to $75USD per 100g is more or less the going rate, plus delivery in mo...

Re: Supplies of chemicals in Australia?

Barry, that is interesting, I bought 10g of Phenidone from Vanbar some time ago, not exactly sure but within the last 12 months. Even more interesting is that as I placed the Vanbar 10g white plastic container in my darkroom shelf, I suddenly remembered about one of my more obscure Canchem purchases...

Re: Richard White LF B&W

Shane, I knew about this but had totally forgotten about it, do you happen to know what the opening times are?

I checked the official website, but there is no mention of opening times.

Re: Wet Negatives

That is a very good use of forceps, I have some somewhere, as well as surgical scissors that almost look the same, never thought to use them but I'm now thinking. I bought eight pair of Kaiser film drying clips in Germany about 32-33 years ago, they have been in constant use since and are wonderful....

Re: Wanted: macro lens for 4x5

Lachlan, I didn't know that about Ellie, next time I drop in to buy some more Bergger film, I may see if she has something to show on hand.
