    How big paperenlargements?

    I think I┤m writing in the right forumtread. I just wonder how big enlargement you can get from a B&W 135-film negative? Am I right about that if I have ASA 100 or lower, the bigger enlargement I can do?

    Depending upon the look you want, and the capacity of your enlarging gear, you can enlarge a 35mm neg as big as you want.

    Anders, consider that people will adjust their viewing distance for larger enlargements - so the sky is the limit really.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    That┤s true. Some want it to be grainy. Why didn┤t I thought of that!?

    Perhaps a stupid question, but I┤m a newbie and want to learn as much as possible before I do something. And as some people say here in sweden; If you never ask you never will know!
    Then you can┤t do it to a 100% just by reading, you must try and fail, and so until you get it right. Is that right?

    It is both -- reading and doing.

    It's a matter of taste. If you want me to buy it, an enlargement from a 35mm original won't be larger than 8x10 or 11x14.

    I have seen 40"x60" prints from 35mm. Like someone said -- it can depend on the viewing distance and what one wants it to look like.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
