Re: Petzval rudbeckia

I really like this photo. The flower takes well to b&w and you set it up well so that it stsnds out. The tilt of the blossom is just right.

Re: Filters for B&W?

Thanks to all who provided answers & links to my question about using filters in b&w. Even though I've been hoping that I could simplify my photography (and the closet in our den where I store stuff) by just using digital, I think I'll keep all my old film filters and use them more. I like the mono...

Re: Filters for B&W?

A few days after making the post above, I searched for filters online . From the results about what's available, it seems as though there must still be a pretty good market for them. I was really surprised to see that there are b&w filters for digital cameras, too. I also found a useful cross-refer...

Re: Filters for B&W?

It was an orange filter that I used. The other two that I used quite a few times were green and yellow. The only ones I used for color film adapted slide film to lighting other than what it was manufactured for-- e.g. tungsten or daylight.

Filters for B&W?

Are filters for black and white film used much any more? Working on some old negatives I came across a few frames from about 15 years ago that were taken on an Olympus Pen W; the old note said that a G filter was used. I had (and probably still have) a pretty complete set of filters of the drop-in s...

Re: M2 Test Rolls

I liked all the photos and particularly enjoyed the tree settings. I don't know much about the M-2 but yours surely works well and I'm guessing the M-2 is manual so you've been working well, too! I have a question about the wall of pictures that I take to be the first in your group. Is it a window f...

Edit Title of Post?

Does someone know if it's possible to edit the title of a post? and if so, how to do it? I used a title that may be misleading and I'd like to change it. Thanks for any help!

Re: Demi and Fuji Make a Good Couple

Philip, Larry, and Pf: Thanks for commenting. I'm going to try to post a photo from the same series to see if I can get rid of the extra stuff in the original post....I guess that it works best to drag and drop-- still has the "attachment title".

Canon Demi HF Camera and Fuji 400 Xtra Film

Compact p&s cameras from the late 20th century are still selling for good prices or so I hear. People like them for their ease of use and good results as well as a change of pace from digital. I don't hear much about HF cameras doing the same, even though a few of them that came out in the late 80's...
