    large format to small format

    i have been shooting lf for a little while now
    and i have a problem
    aside from my ground glass being broken
    ( it has the image backwards and upside down )
    i am not getting the quality of image i want.
    i like using a leica and a 50 sumawhatever
    and a pen ft and i am trying
    to get my lf images to look like these other cameras took the photos.
    i have done alot of different things to try to achieve this ..
    processed my film in a variety of developers
    xtol, dk50' dektol, ansxo 130, sprint, coffee, alone and with other additives,
    and a handful of other stuff .. like monos
    ive done deep tank/ hangers, trays, taco, stand, trays, rollers buckets too
    but they dont do it ...
    i have a darkroom and might use it if i have to
    but if i dont have to i dont mind
    my only constraints are it cant be with exotic chemicals
    just normal stuff, and it cant take too long to do ..
    i have a serious habit to feed ( film and paper )
    and i need some help.

    im working on a binocilar reflex viewer to make my prints right side up
    the problem i had before wasnt really remedied

    thanks in advance

    You need to have a cup of coffee, John. It's not just for developer anymore, you know.

    i did whitey !
    and after drinking the brew i realized that if i could somehow pull it off,
    make my results perfectly unlarge it would be helpful.
    luckily i didnt drink the sumatra, i might have oxidiEd
    and that would just be bad ... i have plenty of density from over agitation already

    I find that if I lomograph the back of my 5x7 with my cell phone, I can invert with photoslop and then use flayers to leicafy the resulting hpargomol.

    Turn your lenses around backward, John.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Go back to bed and sleep it off.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Most educational. This intriguing post has a metrical timbre that ebbs and flows like a melancholy poem from Alan Edgar Poe. What is wrong, John??
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.
