Re: ND Grads

Hi Maris,

Thanks for the great tips! I'll have to give some of those a try soon, especially the idea of blanking the two halfs and exposing twice.

Re: ND Grads

Hi Barry, I won't post these test results because they show too much info about my house :) But I might re-do them differently soon and I'll post those. In this test I carefully metered for incident light falling on the scene, but forgot to measure the exposure difference between foreground and sky,...

ND Grads

In another thread I mentioned that I've previously had issues with overcast skies ending up blown-out, so I've been taking advantage of this week's weather to experiment with ND grads. To test, I shot an overcast (urban) landscape with no filter, 1.5 stops, 2.5 stops, and 4 stops of ND grad to get a...

Re: Wanted Omega enlarger power supply-

I've bought a few things from KHB before, although not recently. They're not cheap and they are slow to respond, but they seem ok other than that. If you do buy a 120v PSU, it might be cheaper to buy a step-down transformer for it rather than having it customised. (Make sure the step-down transforme...

Re: Utility building

From memory, it was printed at grade 3 on multigrade RC. (I only use fibre once I know it's going to be worth the effort). The clouds were quite forboding that day, but with this negative even with lots of sky burn-in it just is a grey mess, all detail has been lost. This was metered by hand with an...

Utility building

This image is one that I had high hopes for at the time but I just couldn't make it work. For example there was a large obstruction just out of shot on the right-hand side, and I should have exposed & developed differently to avoid blowing out the clouds. But I couldn't go back to reshoot, this ...

Re: Wattle and friends

Out of interest, is this a scan of the negative or a scan of a print?

Re: Warneet Boat

(Just a sec while I take off my LF photo admirer hat and put on my LFPA forum admin hat...) For what it's worth, this site is currently using about a third of its storage capacity. The storage limit is higher than what it was when I took over a few years ago, but I have never even looked at attachme...
