Re: The Chart: Agitation and Errors

Very true. Different developers call for different agitation. I would also like to be able to add times for push processing an N+ or N- adjustments. One of the other things that would be very helpful would be the ability to add my own developer info to the "My Times" section. In other words, I'd lik...

Re: Luminous Landscape misinformation

A moment of perspective: We are quickly approaching something called "Peak Oil." We may have already passed it, in fact. This means that energy will become increasingly expensive to produce and use. The energy production required to produce computer chips, digital cameras, printers, and to power a b...

Re: 'Outdated Film' developer

"curious as to how many readers actually prefer to diy with raw ingrediants rather than off the shelf stuff."

I do both whenever possible.

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

"Gary's original post asked which developer would be suitable for Adox ORT 25 film. This thread has gone off topic long ago. I think it would be better to start a new thread to discuss whether photography can be considered as art or not." I'm done with it. I do, however, think that Ornello should ap...

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

And, lastly. If you were to take an Ansel Adams photo, say, Clearing Winter Storm, and print the negative straight--no burning, dodging or other manipulation. By his own admission, it would be really quite dull. What Ansel Adams did to his images to produce the final print was much more than "optics...

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

My wife is an artist. I studied art, art history, and art philospohy in college (as electives, not as my major). Art is a much more fluid term than some folks may think.

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

As I said before, we're going to have to agree to disagree about this. You make some good points, but I don't accept them as relevant.

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

Remember, I'm talking about those of who show at galleries, not the average snapshooter or commercial photographer, but If someone picks up a camera intending to be merely a stenographer, then why bother? If you don't see the world with the same compositional skills as a painter, i.e. POV, dynamic l...

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

I know. My response was in jest. I refuse to put smily faces after my humor, so if the humor is subtle, some folks don't.

We'll have to agree to disagree about whether photography is art though.
