I used ilford fp4+125 b/w film rated at 100 (I'm not used to this film so I guessed 100), I developed it in xtol 1:1 normal time (I should have developed N-1 to bring the highlight back down a bit but I only have one film back at the moment).
I scanned the neg in on my epson 3200. In photoshop I converted the greyscale image to rgb.
To get the tone I then went into the curves dialogue and then into the red channel where I pulled the centre of the curve up and to the left a little. Then into the blue channel and pulled the centre down and right a little. Moving back and forth between the red and blue channels to get the desired tone.
What would be, from your experience, the most adequate enlarger / lense combination to get the best redition of the stunning hasselblad negs when printing at home. I have some equipment I used with 35mm and adapted to 120 format - Kaiser VP 6001 enlarger and Rodagon F/4 80mm lense. The prints I get would definitely stand some improvements compared to prints I got from a downtown lab.
Thanks for your advises.
Thank you James
I was not expecting such a speedy reply
Calumet have many UK stores and an HQ in Milton Keynes, which I will contact tomorrow.Their website suggests that they have Tri X in stock at reasonable prices.
I will let you know how I get on, and look forward to taking and posting a few BW pictures
Just to let you know that Calumet UK can supply me with 220 size rollfilm - Tri x Pan - I think I have ordered their last 5 remaining rolls. Maybe they will be able to obtain more. They also say they have &le supplies of 5 packs of 100 ASA Ektachrome and Fuji Velvia 50 ASA. So thanks again for the lead
