    Re: Avebury

    I've mentioned elsewhere that you can use ordinary paper, develop it and then peel the emulsion of the backing. you can then use this to contact print a positive image. Modern papers seem to have a plastic film that makes the peeling easy.

    (I think that every photographer that's been to Avebury has photographed those roots!)

        Some people don't even remove the backing to make prints: https://www.filmshooterscollective.c...er%20negatives
        Not something that I've tried yet.

        They are very photogenic, aren't they?!

          Thanks. The RSS 5x4 is definitely challenging to use. For one thing it has an ultra wide field of view, something like 9 or 10mm as a 35mm equivalent.

          Harman Direct Positive Paper is also quite challenging. It's very slow (ISO of about 3) and very contrasty. You can pre-flash the paper to reduce contrast but I used it straight.

            Re: Avebury

            I really like these pics Roger, they are very atmospheric. Nos. 2 and 3 especially.

            I have a Zero Image pinhole camera which takes 120 roll film. It also has a very wide field of view and no viewfinder, but I find that if I look at something directly the field of view approximates to my field of vision. I haven't used it for many years, perhaps I should have another go. The attachment was taken at Fountains Abbey, printed using the lith process which is almost completely uncontrollable but when it works produces some lovely results.

              Thanks Richard. I've always liked the look of those Zero Image cameras. And that shot is truly spectacular.
