Yes, Lee, studio is a different ballgame, and you can stack more gels. I cut my teeth as an assistant in a studio that shot big rig trucks on location for the manufacturers. Those guys would stack all kinds of filters, and the shots were gorgeous and perfect. They had to be. I think that you can get away with quite a bit as long as you don't shoot in a high flare situation. I can't afford gels any more, and I'll never wear the glass out.
In my Bolex 16mm cameras - behind the lens yes often - CTO and ND mostly ...
I have dozens of 2, 3, and 4 inch Wrattens I want to SELL because I'm going strictly color neg for which I don't use filters. All are in good condition (no damage what-so-ever) and many still factory sealed. A few of these are rare. I'll probably keep a couple of ND's but that's all I'll really need. I also have many Kodak 4x4 frames and at least one of the 4x4 frame holders complete with Series 9 retaining ring.
it might be a bit before i could get them from you though (kinda out in the money dept right now, with class registration just over :()
please PM me with what you have available though.
I've been finding that even though I've been shooting color negative films mostly, personally I have found it better for my workflow to gel the lens before I take the picture.
please let me know as to what you have available though.
are they all kodak wrattens? or lees?
for color conversion, you'd be better served by decamired filters.
Here's the list of 3" Wratten filters available. I'll list the 4" and 2" later.
B/W + SPECIAL:
WARMING / COOLING:
(4) 3 INCH FRAMES
Nearly all of these are genuine Kodak and many are unsued. I have duplicates of a few. All will be inspected before they're shipped. I'll give APUG its percentage and I'll be a paying member this coming paycheck.
If your ND filters are 3" - I would be interested in ND 2,3, &4. Pl;ease PM me.
