Dear sly and hpulley~
Many thanks for the info! I am SO isolated from film photographers (even though I curate for two small art galleries) that I don't hear about other methods for developing and printing. Folks look at me funny when I announce I only use film. But the jokes on them as they will never know the glorious feeling that comes when that image begins to appear in the developer tray!
Around here no one has done real optical enlargements for years so I have to do it myself! I print B&W and color in my basement and develop the film too as the labs here are slow and do a poor job on film these days. If you complain about the quality they just suggest you shoot digital sadly as that is most of their business these days, digicams and injket printers which just don't give me the results I want (or the process I want to use either).
Less light and shadow, and more trick of the light, I wish I could say I processed this myself, but this is a Dr5 slide, I wanted to see how the background would be affected by metering on the light bulb. I found out that it would go away completely.
Nice to see that you have worked on the topic, I wonder what else is coming!
Nikkor 105 f/2.5
f2.5 and spot metered on the 60Watt light bulb, I didn't notice the shutter speed.
Kodak TX400 shot at ISO 400, Dr5 processed.
Next time I should probably focus on the front of the shade, or stop down a little.
This slide projects really nicely.
Very nice, such beautiful and different contributions are made. I hope to see some more!
My contribution to the theme (taken from my existing collection):
Another one I have to print, just can't seem to get printing time in the basement these days. Must endeavor to do so this weekend... so another negative scan for now...
This one is excellent.Quote:
