    I think just about here someone will tell you to go read some book, so go read some book. I think the phone book is pretty good. Lots of characters in there.

    Getting back to the original off topic;

    Place your LF negative in the enlarger, turn the 150mm lens around so you can delarge to postage size image, print on cheap assed kodalith and develop in Dektol 1:25. Contact print onto another sheet of kodalith knockoff with a sheet of diffused opaque plastic (for maximum sharpness) and print as normal with your printmaker35 and a cheap old fogged 50mm Wollensak lens.

    I'ld say you would get close to Leica quality with that.

    the grain, or texture or contrast of my 8x10 film and making it
    more like cheap 35mm ...
    i live near an airport, maybe i will ask them to xray my film a few times
    its only a few hundred dollars a box

    he asked if i wanted to go amorphic
    i guess he wanted to adjust my cells
    or something radical, not sure what i will do now
    that he is asking serious questions ..
    Why the hell do you need a machinist if you are using toilet tissue tubes and duct tape?

    For crying out loud, please use the search function before you ask a question that's been answered before.

    Kodalith is a type of headache pill that they use on the South Pole. It gives a cool image, especially in the winter time.
