    An image that I've been working on this afternoon, which is going to be part of a series. Still a work in progress. Sinar F2 , 210mm

    Another version after much PS curve twisting, dodging, burning and masking!
    Still, not quite as good as what I could print in the wet darkroom.

    Francois,its a beautiful image,as is yours Jeremy,3seconds of life,so interesting.Im being slowly pulled into the large format thinking;like the idea of 10x8 but that standard lens must be a monster.Havent used such a camera for about twenty years,such a nice way of working..............all the best Neil.

    Thanks Neil!
    I am thinking about the 8x10 too! There is always the 5x7 size as an intermediate step to the bigger format.

    Actually 5x7 is not a bad idea. Equipment is portable in a whole different way than 8x10. You might have to cut the film yourself from 8x10 but it isn't that much of a hassle. Development equipment like tanks and enlargers (if you want to go that way) are smaller, and scanner options are vast compared to 8x10.

    Thanks for the compliment. The 360mm lens I'm using is big in comparison to lenses most are used to, but it feels downright puny compared to some of the big brass lenses I have (think 6.5" flange just to mount the lens to a board).

    Speaking of monsters, I have an Apo-Nikkor 610 f/9 repro lens in barrel. I never got to use it - it's just too unwieldly at about 5-6 pounds. It's huge and has moderately wide coverage, should cover 11x14 with movements. At this time it's a great conversation starter.

    Here it is next to my Sigma 50/1.4, which in itself is a huge lens for an SLR normal.

    That's one dense piece of glass! Here's a quick snap of some of the larger lenses I play with along with a few other items for scale.

    L -> R
    135mm f/5.6 Schneider Symmar-S
    360mm f/6.3 Fujinon (this is the lens used for the above portrait)
    Rolleiflex for scale
    18" f/4 Verito
    16" f/4 Dallmeyer 3A

    Jeremy,

    The 16" Dallmeyer should be next to a refrigerator for scale. What does it weigh?

    Stephen,

    The 16" Dallmeyer uses waterhouse stops instead of an adjustable iris for stopping down so it just consists of 2 cemented elements at the front and 2 at the rear of the lens. For the size, it's quite light. The 18" Verito next to it does have a built-in adjustable iris and weighs more, but doesn't weigh as much as the Dallmeyer 6D I have with built-in adjustable iris. That sucker, the 6D, is over 5 pounds.

    Hi Jim,

    I particularly like the second image with the tires marks on the foreground.

    How would you rate the dynamic range of the scanning back compared to digital backs (they all claim to be 12 stops)?

    Thanks,
    Francois

    Hi Dianne:

    It is indeed the same location and similar shooting position.

    For those interested, that is a walkway in the Alviso area of the SF Bay wildlife refuge. The "gates" were added to replicate the gates used in the old harbor that used to reside there. Due to environmental restrictions, harbor dredging was halted in the 70's I think, and several of the boat harbors along the South end of the bay filled in and turned into marshlands. They of course then went broke, could not be sold and were "turned over" to the government.

    This must be near Drawbridge? Some years ago (-95?) I went on a photography walk in Drawbridge an early Sunday morning. The morning fog was heavy, all that was visible were the railroad tracks, the marshlands, and the decayed wood building, all in the middle of the south bay.

    Hi Lars:

    Yes, Drawbridge is a ghost town that is now flooded by marsh tides. It lies on the railroad tracks half-way between Alviso (where the above harbor is) and Fremont.

    I like this one a lot. Only nit is I would like to see just a wee bit more room on the RH edge, but the discomfort of that close edge may be why it moves me

    Working on a new project where I'm looking at perception and following in the footsteps of Merleau-Ponty. Initial shot is on 4x5, second shot is on 8x10. I'm thinking of printing the series with both images at 8"x10" in palladium and putting them in the same mat.

    Thanks Rob!
    I got a 6K-HS from ebay for a good price.

    I like the the subdued colours one gets when it is used without filter. This is something that has grown on me after seeing Jim Collum's images.

    At first, I thought I would avoid situations where there is any movements, but now, I realize it is a different way, with its particular aesthetics, of recording the passage of time.

    thank you for the compliment!

    and yes... there's nothing any more 'real' about blurred/foggy long exposure water vs. the wave action from a scanning back.... as you said. both are artifacts of time

    I'm jealous! I only have access to the massive files of the 8k, but would prefer the speed of the 6k. Then again, I think I just need to come up with a still life project for the 8k....

    Some more tests with the Betterlight using a Schneider 47 XL.
    First one without any filter; second one with a Lee 87 infrared filter. I was shooting through a window, so there are some reflections. I have yet to muster the courage to venture outside with all that equipment!

    Well, I'd like to add to this thread since I'm really enjoying large format photography even having Nikon D3x. I use Linhof Techikardan 45S and Rodenstock lenses.

    I prefer the second one Francois FWIW. Nice work either way.

    Alex nice work too.

    Been to busy this summer to get in the field with the BL, but here is one I did a couple months ago using the infrared approach.

    Alex, I particularly like the second image. What focal length did you use?
    This is taken with Rodenstock 55/5.6. I like these super wides.

    Just a few digitally toned for faux VDB with the Dan Burkholder method.

    This is the Cable-Greg home in the Cades Cove section of the Smokies. Section of a 4x5 negative shot on the old TMAX 400 emulsion developed in pyro cat.

    Final inkjet print size ~ 9.5x36 printed with QTR. Even extremely experienced alt printers think the inkjet print is a palladium print.

    Here is a section of an 8x10 negative. Final print as a cropped contact print with palladium. Faux VDB tone again. Part of series shot on Sappelo Is. Ga of the RJ Reynolds Plantation.

    Original exposure made with a rickety old Folmer-Schwing 8x10 on the old TRI-X emulsion developed in pyrocat.

    Last contribution. This is an iconic funerary statue found in Laural Grove cemetery, Savannah, GA. Made with a Wisner 4x5 Tradtional on the old TMAX 400 emulsion - pyrocat developed. Final prints range from silver gelatin, palladium, VDB, cyanotype and inkjet print. This negative is relatively easy to print but does require some careful burning to achieve the proper shadow rendering. The highlights just need the correct contrast and exposure. Faux digital toning once again.
