5x7 PlusX 2402 Aero D23 5x7 Norma 500mm Tele Xenar by Nokton48, on Flickr

Kodak Aerographic Five Inch Plus-X cut seven inches, to fit a 5x7 Lisco Holder. 5x7 Sinar Norma with my newly CLA'ed Schneider 500mm Tele Xenar at F22. Hasselblad 40mm Distagon Yellow Filter jammed inside the lenshood, it fits! D23 1:1 8x10 Unidrum on Uniroller. 5x7 Contact Print on Arista #2 RC Dektol 1:2 The Tele-Xenar is quite sharp up front as you can see. I'm liking this film for 5x7, but I can also cut it to 4x5 or even 9x12cm. Like the tonality you get with the Aerial emulsion. Tim Kelly Inspired Broncolor Balloon 90 degrees left, lighting the entire set. Main light Broncolor C171 Monolight Pulsoflex Softbox, one stop brighter than the fill, 45 left to the set. Just out of camera shot 45 right, is a foamcore freestanding panel for passive fill. Finally, the creme on the sundae, is Broncolor C70 Monolight with Snoot and Handmade Grid from an olde Broncolor Honeycomb. Selecting lighting a small portion of the background. Just because

Ebony 45S. Fujinon-A 240mm f9.
Fuji Provia Quickload 4x5 [converted to B&W and cropped to 1:2]


Had the wrong film that day, and I feel this should be better composed by knocking a bit of that foreground off, but...

(By the way, that's the sea in yonder).

On my first outing with my new Arca Swiss F-Field Metric I (knowingly) exceeded the maximum rise on the venerable Super Angulon 65mm / 5.6 and had to spend some time in Photoshop dealing with the resulting dark corners. HP5 processed in LC29. When I see the scans (all the dust and my inadequate film processing skills), I usually regret not shooting in digital, but LF can be good fun, with all the rise and shift possibilities, and looking like Ansel to passers by. This image makes me wonder if I could have taken it with an XT plus the 32mm Rodenstock lens (say). I have the IQ4 150 back and use it on the XF body for my "production-style" shoots with models. Adding the XT and extra lenses has always seemed too extravagant to me, given my only occasional forays into architecture and landscape. One day, I may rent the XT and go back to this place, to test it. Perhaps in a more moody weather and with a model wearing a long red robe or a goth outfit :). This place is a little ruin in the Leithaberge hills East of Vienna, Austria.
