has anyone seen the commercial for the 'save the greenbacks'? it's a car commercial for a kia optima, i think..

watch closely next time
while they are actively saving these greenbacks by what looks like a defibrillator, they're actually using TACKING IRONS!

anyone who has ever had to dry mount knows exactly what i'm talking about.

cross processing [Jul. 25th, 2007|06:13 pm]
[Current Mood |curious]

i'm planning on cross processing whatever's on my next roll of film.. so, i'm going to have my c41 run through the e6 chemicals.. but i don't want the low contrast (my intentions weren't to cross process but i think i want to now)

would it make sense for me to tell my lab to push-process a few stops to compensate because i didn't intentionally overexpose?

my brain says yes, but i'm not entirely sure.

will post scans when they're ready!

Polaroid P/N material [Jul. 24th, 2007|12:50 pm]

So is Polaroid Type 665 gone for good? I used to shoot 665 negs @ ISO 25, peel the neg off early (~10 sec of dev time) and solarize it using a 2K hot light to fairly good effect...NSFWCollapse )I know I can still do the same thing with Type 55 using a 4x5 (for >$4 per sheet, grumble, grumble), but it was nice to be able to throw the Polaroid pack back on my Hasselblad and work through a session fairly quickly while my models were being paid by the hour.

Anyone else feeling the pain caused by this line being discontinued? Anybody else using this technique? (I picked it up from Michael Grecco's first lighting book, IIRC...)
