Many thanks -- I owned an SWC years ago but didn't stick with it, so this is the second go-round (this one is a 1957 Super Wide, so basically the same camera as the Supreme Wide with the separate cocking shutter). What 'inspired' me to use this camera for portraits was the Bill Brandt photo of Francis Bacon taken in 1963 -- I don't I'll think get anywhere near the quality of that portrait, but I'm sure going to keep trying.Vince,
I have always wanted to use a SWC for environmental portraits.
While they are not in any way an apple for apple comparison, the 50mm CFi FLE lens was my favorite portrait lens just for the extra elements you were able to incorporate. Brilliant shot and very inspiring
