    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

    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
    ask me how ..

    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??
