6 1/8” f4 Verito, sounds like fun. What format are you shooting it on?

Roger

Hi, Roger,
It's classed for 3x4, but it covers 4x5.
(It actually says that in the Wolly catalog.)
I mounted it on my 4x5 Anniversary Speed Graphic, and it illuminates 4x5 nicely...and if the corners are soft, so what? It's a Soft Focus lens!
I haven't shot with it yet, but I'm REALLY looking forward to it. 🙂

Four small bottles of TEA.
Fomapan 4x5
Tannic Acid

PC-TEA developers have always interested me, but I never fully understood the heating to over 100°C.
I mix and keep the Phenidone in Isopropyl alcohol, because such a small amount is needed, and wonder about the adding of it in such a hot liquid.

The bottle of TEA I have standing in my darkroom is nearly liquid in the summer because the darkroom heats up a bit above 30°C (it's on top of the buiding)...

Can that heating be omitted?

I mixed up my first batch of 510-Pyro at 80C. When I mix up Pyrocat-HD, I heat up to 52C. The next batch of 510 I make, I'm going to try a lower temperature. I like that video of Jay de Fehr mixing it up... where he dumps everything in, then heats it all up on a hot plate. To what temperature he heats, he doesn't say... but I'll bet it all goes into solution before 80C!

perhaps it may not be necessary to heat the TEA that much. Both ascorbic acid and phenidone will dissolve albeit little slowly.

Its an excellent developer.

I picked up an X-Ray viewer at a garage sale. It will make a halfway decent light table in the darkroom.

By far the smallest items listed. Two Minox cassettes loaded with Ilford FP4. Too lazy to roll my own!

A bunch of Arca Swiss style plates and clamps. Some from Kirk, some from FLM, and some from Arca Swiss themselves. I’m slowly transitioning from Manfrotto hex plates to A-S mount. My big stuff is still hex, but that will change eventually.

Frames...black wood - a dozen 10"x 12" (for 4x5 carbon prints) with acrylic glazing and foamcore. Feel almost guilty because I ordered custom-cut window mats instead of doing it myself (for the first time). Time is short and still lots to print before the end of the month for an October show. And I will still have mats to cut for the larger frames, so I will not miss out on that experience.

$50 each. The price of the work just got bumped up a little.

Wow that’s quite a lot for frames. What makes them better than, say, cheap frames from Michaels?

Good question. While I have a pretty well-equipped wood shop and have made lots of custom frames over the years, for my solo show last April I bought some inexpensive frames from Blick for my smaller work and cut my own mats. I had lots of small drawings that went well in an 8x10 frame which, with my mat, cost about $10 each.

A wonderful book 'PRAHA' by Jan Reich, an avid adept of Josef Sudek, the poet of Prague.

Sudek is the master whom's work inspired my work for the book 'PARIS DANS MON GAND'.

That they are not cheaply made or put together. Same material/build as a custom frame shop. Large choice of options (mats, glazing, etc), knowing I can get the same frames to match years down the line (or close anyway...a favorite profile has disappeared over the last couple decades). Fast turnaround. I am comfortable passing the cost on to the buyer knowing we both did well. I am not going to put an $800 photograph I have spent a hell of a lot of time on in a $29.95 frame that these days look like a $16.99 frame on a good day. 😎

I do go down to the local frame shop for a frame here and there...but for the price of just the frame locally, I can get the frame, glazing, the window custom cut, backing board and foamcore shipped to me.
