A Giant Leap Forward

Well, at long last I have set-up my scanner and got it functioning. A significant improvement on the state of play over the last two and a half years! Another change is that I have switched back to Ilfotec DD-X. I used it 18 years ago when it was new on the market and found it incredibly clean. A ro...

Re: Billila House

Too right, Mick, I have used Ilford 'FP' films so long that when I started they came in yellow boxes. A surfing mate at the time was the manager of Ilford at Willoughby (Sydney) and he'd rabbit on and on about how shifting to minimalist white packaging was going to build market share. I think he was...

Re: Rock Stains & White Flowers, Girraween

I have never seen a Mamiya Super 23, did a web search, seems to be a very nice camera, quite the all rounder it would seem. Mick. Mick, Have a look at the work of the renowned William Eggleston; much of his work was on C-41 and the Mamiya 23. As I recall there were a few cracker lenses for the came...

Re: Nude, Warm Rock, Granite Bay.

Everything Mick said ...... PLUS: I wonder how it might have been is the skin had some sand on it to gain some of the texture of the rock? Maybe even a slightly overcast, diffused light to retain the basic specularity of the skin but reduce the sharply defined umbra? I know, I know, it is done and i...

Re: Any Others Experience DownTime?

Thank you for the explanation. It confirms my initial thought.

What a treat to have a site with frank, open and transparent exchange of information such as this.
