I will be photographing the nearby motorway from atop a hill tonight. The residential and industrial surrounds will be included as well as the ocean in the background. Hopefully there will be some remaining clouds, but not too many.
Just looking at some general advice on how to bracket the shots tonight.
I am looking at shooting at around f/16 to f/8 on hp5 at 400asa - mainly because I want to use up this faster film and load fp4 asap. How long do you think the exposures should last? I generally want there to be enough emanating from the suburbs to show general detail, yet not enough to blow out the lights of the motorway.
ivin.info/download/Films/HP5_Plus.pdf the Hp5+ data sheet detailing reciprocity compensation and some opinions here, http://photo.net/black-and-white-pho...g-forum/00AiJS
I am thinking of shooting 1', 5', 15', 30', 60' at f/16 and 1", 30", 1', 5', 15', 30' at f/8
Though this is a complete guess.
I could always do a very very long and develop in Diafine, which should guarantee highlights in tact...I might do this with a second roll....
