Hi Lee :wave:

Well...
...Alec Guinness ( George Smiley ), in the follow up to John Le Carres 'Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy'...
...contact printed a B&W negative with virtually ZERO equipment, in his basement !

MI6 training of course. ;)

But, if you can get the chemicals, anything is possible.
Perhaps NOT practical though. :f:

:moose:

Si.

Flashbulbs & vintage lenses are MUCH more useable though.
Check out Winston Links night time U.S. train photos.
All taken with multiple flashbulbs.
STUNNING !

I love this shot...



I'm going to re-shoot this in RAW format for the upcoming magazine article (more info that later), but at a slightly different angle (so you can see the freight cars behind the locomotive) but using the same real-time techniques to show steam and exhaust in action. No Photoshop was used for the steam effects. The exhaust and steam were done with added up paper towels and a cardboard tube covered in cotton and painted. They were each moved around in a 30-second exposure, then removed halfway through.

Clever stuff with the steam Lee and very effective. Wouldn't know where to start with that myself or have the camera settings to help, possessing only a little Nikon Coolpix 5200 compact. I'd have to use my photo management software for that effect.

The nearest I've ever got is with my old 009/HOe Tremeifion layout using layers in Serif PhotoPlus X5 to turn

Just got a new cell phone last night (a LG G5) and it's got a really good camera. First photo I took was of the layout and I was surprised at the depth of field for a cell phone:


I'm working on a magazine article on my layout and I'll be re-shooting these shots with my good SLR with long exposure in RAW format.

I just added what the old folks would have called, "a mess o' Critters*" on the layout. And this isn't all of them.






A small cow pasture is going on next, I'm painting the cows right now to match the right breed for the area at that time.

*In the deep South, a "mess of" something is a colloquial unit of measurement, denoting a large amount.

Nice to see a bit of life in a layout but who's going to clear up after 'em?! Being one of the old(ish) folks, it certainly ain't goin' ter be me!!

Tiny little dung beetles will handle that, but they're so small they don't show up in photos...
I'm thinking of moving the squirrels to different spots as you don't encounter them out in the open like that for very long. I think sitting atop one of the water towers would be a great place for one.
I also have a tiny little scale frog, and that's going into a puddle I'm working on this weekend. There's a turtle, too, but I couldn't get a very good shot of it, standing next to a road as you'd never see it any other place.

I drew out a track plan in ink, then scanned and colored it last night. I think it turned out okay. The original file is the size of a letter-sized sheet of paper:

I like the plan.  Not unlike my own.  A simple point to point.
