A bit off topic perhaps.... photos

Hi, guys.

As we all know, interpretation of B/W film is not necessarily easy, a lot of factors can give some pretty obscure effects.

I would suppose that the effect of different kinds of film and filters can be simulated using Photoshop, does anyone know of websites which show examples of these effects?

Regards,
Andreas B

Hello Andreas,
sorry to hijack your thread, I should send a PM probably, did you receeive an email from me regarding a 1945 Norwegian who was on a aircraft which crashed in Ireland?

I'd sent it some months ago and feared my email might be failing to get through.

regards, Dennis

Hi Andreas,

See if you can track down a shot of the Mosquito prototype, at the time numbered (IIRC) E0234.

The orthochromatic film results in the all-yellow airframe appearing red.

Edit - example here:

Hi.
I would still like to know if anybody has found a system to convert orthochromic back to ordinary greyscale.
I have looked to see if I can find it, but must misname my search perameters as it never comes up.
Anybody managed that??
Will stop a lot of arguments.
Stefaan
