    Hi Pramote, It's just another rock......with a really nice pattern of quartz veins running through it. I really like it when you have to look at hard at an image.

    A very foggy day in Derbyshire. Made with Shen Hao 4x5 with FP4 and developed in Obsidian Aqua. I used a 240mm Symmar to compress the scene slightly and enhance the sense of being inside the wood with the fog outside (although it was actually everywhere).

    Hi Mike, sorry I missed your post.
    It is the 75/4.5 Nikkor-SW cropped aggressively.
    Probably shot at around f/16.
    I have an Epson V700, unless you can afford an Imacon/Flextight it (or v750) is the best option.

    My first 4x5 and my first time using Scheimpflug. This is on a Chamonix 4x5 F1 with asymmetrical back tilt. It takes only one focus and one tilt to get it to work. Sweet.

    The tones of 4x5 is just amazing. I made (sorry, I only do post and print using computer) a 17x22 print and the quality is astonishing, but you all know this. I am a noob later comer :-)

    "At the Edge of Torrents"

    My daughter and I went to the coast yesterday, which we usually do once or twice a year. I watched the waves coming over the rock "wall" with the sea palms for about 15 mins and found a spot about 25 feet from the rock wall for a photo. All these times, the wave only reached about 10 feet beyond the wall (yes, you can see where this is going, don't you?)

    Then my daughter went back up for a moment, and I started to focus on the far side - the waves beyond the wall. This is with my head inside the dark cloth behind the 4x5 camera.

    I saw a couple waves went over, and then I saw this big wave coming over on the ground glass and thinking to myself, hmmm... that wave looks kind of big... "Oh Sh*$%^t" and my legs got wet. Removing my head from the dark cloth, I saw that there were some spray on my camera and my camera bag 4 feet further away got soaked.

    Fortunately my film holders were in ziplock bags and they were OK. Some lens got some spray. I wiped them and dried them as much as I could. I moved back another 10 feet, finally took some photos, and watched the waves some more, and for another 30 minutes or more, no wave ever reached that far again....

    In any case, when we got home, I disassembled, washed, and cleaned the lens.

    I hope this is all worth it!

    Oh it was worth it - great shot. And a learning experience.

    This all sounds familiar I once set up my 8x10 on a beach in Australia literally in the surf. waves came in ever 15 seconds or so, reaching between four and five feet up. I held on to the tripod when each surge came, then between waves set up the camera, and finally ran up to the dry to get a film holder and then back down again to grab the tripod for the next surge. Everything worked out well, great experience although perhaps it wasn't one of my best shots.

    Due to the composition of the rocks, wind and water erosion, you can find some very interesting patterns and and shapes at the California coast.

    "The magic Colorize button"
    So looking at the scanned Acros-100 B&W image, I notice that Photoshop 12.6 BETA6.6 has a "Colorize" button. When I clicked on it, I like it even better than the original. What do you think?



    Just kidding of course. I finally got new batch of color chemical and yes, I do like this version even more!

    Sergei,

    Your lighting and portrait technique would translate to any format to produce first rate photographs. Just absolutely stunning portraits.

    Very nice Jim, did you use a polarizer with the "pond" pictures?

    These are gorgeous but I like this one the most. Do you use IR cut filter with these pictures?

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    no polarizer.. I was lucky to have the angle right for this. it was predawn, and I was pretty close to the pond.

    as for IR cut.. the Betterlight by default needs an external IR cut filter to capture 'normal' light. the sensor array doesn't have any filtration in front of it. Makes for easy IR shooting, but for regular light, i mount the filter on the inside element.

    Thank you I have quite a bit drifted towards portraits with large format for same reason as Avedon once said. Its not as much about details or ease of focusing or fancy movements (but they all do help) but about fact that with large format camera people actually paying more attention to you - models listen better, they dont jerk as much....

    Plus i am always getting that rush of positive adrenaline when film is in processing, you dont really know how well you did.. and then it emerges and you go "OH WOW..."

    Jim, if you go to Bean Hallow again and see a black RF75 holder, IT'S MINE

    I think in the chaos of trying to move my equipments away from the waves, I lost my holder there :-(
