Interesting results, Richard. I have a technical question. Why would you use F22 for 35 minutes, instead of using a lower F-stop and exposing for a shorter time? How did you decide which f-stop and time combination to use? #109441

Hi Dorothy. The f-stop and time combo came about from trial and error - over a three month time period. The main reason I stayed with a higher f-stop was for a good depth of field. Also, I needed the longer time to hand-light the head stones and not be seen on film. I hope this helps
