Mostly, I've been using those F6's pictured above! But since I bought 200 sheets of the Galaxy Hyperspeed paper through their Kickstarter, I have to use it up. It was a fun session. My incident meter swore I needed only 8 seconds at f64 with the two monolights I was using. The 300mm lens was extended to 480mm, so it seemed like I needed another one and a third stops for bellows compensation, and then for reciprocity - how much? I had no idea, so I used four sheets of paper, all pre-flashed for four seconds through a sheet of plain white paper in front of the lens, then exposed for 8, 16, 30 and 60 seconds. Just as well that the 30 second exposure turned out nicely, as it seems I placed the paper in the holder the wrong way round for the 60 second exposure (it was a negative, but it was the right way round left to right, and it probably got the equivalent of 2 seconds actual exposure). Fun, fun, fun. That's why we do it, no?Good to see you shooting Large format again Chris, or are you posting elsewhere?
