Brian: Thanks for the quick reply. You are right about calibrating the equipment. I shoot with an old hasselblad 500c and I really should take the time to calibrate it for the film I shoot - Kodak Tri-X. Could you recommend an avilable resource for this?
By the way, I was checking out your photos on APUG when I received your response. Very nice work, particulalry the B&W. Just curious - what film/paper combination do you use?
