    Restored Images

    For the friends on the other side of the pond.
    Some wonderfully/lovingly restored images of your photographic heritage from the turn and early 1900. I hope all visiting will enjoy seeing the crispy sharp details in some of them.
    (Wrongly misplaced initially).

    Stunning, utterly fantastic.

    We'll never see the likes of that quality again.

    It seems like photography has been going backwards for the last 100 years or so!

    My favourites? Nos 1 to 100 inclusive

    That could be me holding the dark-slide sheath and shutter release in 038!

    Thanks

    ??? You can simply make the emulsions yourself and get an old camera from ebay. Photography back then was not rocket science. The formulas and chemistry are readily available. Lots of photographers today are using old processes. I would not think this has disappeared. I would say to go for it if you are interested.

    Why make it yourself? Ilford makes a batch of assorted ULF sizes every year. Here's one:

    And all of them:

    Making it yourself will produce emulsions with a limited spectral response which gives these images their look. HP5 will not look like these photographs. It is not just a matter of the size of the camera.

    I assume you are right, but still, size will make a difference. Other Ilford emulsions are available too. FP4 would be interesting.
