    Another portrait of my Long Suffering Wife, standing in for a test shot again. Testing of the Shanghai 100 film, 16:15 in Harvey 777, taken at ISO 100, but I think I need to set it to ISO50.

    Gold Dot Dagor 14" Chamonix F1.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    Herb and his wife (sorry I didn't get the spelling of her name...) graciously spent a couple hours with me yesterday, drinking tea and sharing some stories. Herb is a local member of the Leica User Group. He is 92 years old, so it is fitting that the first portrait is with the Cooke PS945, the modern lens based on an optical formula from the 1920 Pinkham and Smith. You can see tiny Fuji he is currently using, while waiting for his M9 to come back from Leica Service:




    This portrait of both of them was done on the real 1920s 7" Cooke. It flares a bit with the windows light from the left but still makes a good image, especially with some post processing:

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    I tried Donald Quall's homebrew monobath (HC-110 US concentrate 16ml, household ammonia 50ml, Ilford Rapid Fixer 10ml, water 180ml, warm to 24-26º and insert negatives, don't agitate and leave for at least six minutes. It is said you can turn on the light at two minutes - I didn't).

    So, 256ml of solution made and placed in a small plastic Tupperware-type box (I thought my 10x8 trays would result in too shallow a depth of solution) Negatives developed separately, one after the other. My Paterson triple timer isn't very reliable, and when I had waited in the darkness for what was at least six minutes I used my phone as a flashlight and saw that it hadn't even started the timer when I pressed the button. So I washed it and it came out a bit contrasty but OK. Very fine grain for HP5+.

    First try with a paper negative. Use Ilford Multigrade RC paper and Ilford Multigrade developer. I rated it at ISO 3, but would have been better at 12 given how quickly it developed.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    I wondered if by developing the paper in Diafine I might get a little speed boost (I didn't) or whether it would tame the contrast (it didn't). Oh well.



    Comparison shot using FP4+ in Don Quall's monobath:



    Conclusion: shan't bother with Diafine for this purpose!

    Chris, I understand that pre-flashing helps with the contrast. Not something (paper negs. that is) I have tried but there is a lot of info on LFP.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    I did try that once, by holding a sheet of white paper in front of the lens and making a 1/400 exposure at f22. That was the occasion when my cut down paper negative caught the dark slide as I put it back in. I flipped the film holder and repeated the process. When I took the lens off the camera to put it away I was surprised to see the first piece of paper sitting in the bellows, and realised the second exposure would also be useless as a result. I didn't bother again, at least, not yet. Since I'm scanning and inverting these images, I can turn down the contrast in LR and it does a fair job.

    In a few weeks I'll be trying to repeat it all with 10x8.

    Today's paper negative:



    This is a curious little chair. It belonged to my grandparents, and back in the days when I could sit in it (it's only 12" across) it hadn't been recovered in velvet. You can just make out a circular depression in the seat where there is a round hole. Originally a bowl could be placed in the hole—it's a late Victorian potty! No doubt the rocking motion helped the motion......!

    I think I shall order up some grade 2 paper instead of multigrade and see if that helps. Then come the yellow filters!

    Still experimenting. Current batch of paper is ISO 6, so I need more lights! Back to HP5+ which I can rate at 640 if developed in Diafine.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    So I am starting another 4x5 portrait project called "The Worldbuilders of Science Fiction and Fantasy." For the inaugural image, I photographed Wanda, who is a friend, but also notably written one of the well known episodes of the 2nd season of the Star Trek: Next Generation. The kicker is that it was the first script she had ever written, but more on that later.

    Anyway, after finishing photographing, I was about to do our audio interview and the subject of Leonard Nimoy came up. Wanda said that while they had never met, Leonard Nimoy was her mentor and inspiration. Then she said that actually there was a famous photo of Nimoy standing in front of his car. She said she wouldn't presume to copy Mr. Nimoy but asked if we could take a snapshot with a digital camera.

    I thought about it (sadly mainly about the price of film, at $4 a sheet, it IS expensive) and said, "lets go ahead and take out the 4x5 again." I looked at the image on the web (*) and said, "I know exactly where there is a power substation in town." It is only 10 minutes away and here's the image:



    Enjoy. More on Wanda later.

    (*) Here's a link to the Nimoy photo (search for "Spock Fairlane") : <https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/7f/23/29/7f23299da50ad288e5d6f439f39cdd46.jpg>

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    This might be of interest (or not, as the case may be). I took the same photo twice using Ilford MG RC paper, and Ilford MG Developer. Both were scanned on the same scanner with the same settings, and both were exported from Lightroom with the same development exactly. The first has no filter, and the second has an orange Lee Filters Daylight to Tungsten full CTO in front of the only light used, and another Lee Daylight to Tungsten full CTO in front of the camera lens as well. Exposure was measured on a neutral grey card for the unfiltered photo, with an extra half stop for the second photo as that's what my spotmeter said was required when I checked the grey card through the filter.





    In order to make sense of it, you should know that the beetle is orange, and the Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle is metallic pale blue (oh, I bet a lot of you knew that already!) I thought the orange filter would make the contrast less given the orthochromatic paper used, and that the orange beetle would be lighter. Perhaps I screwed up somewhere in the exposures, but as things stand, I prefer the photograph without the orange filter (which gives me a half stop less exposure time - hurray!) At present, it looks like the orange filter has increased contrast, rather than reduced it. Perhaps this paper isn't truly orthochromatic?

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    With my 4x5 on the tripod which I carried on my shoulder, I was strolling around this huge hall full of Science Fiction and Fantasy writers doing mass autograph, just to see if there were any photo opportunities. I set up the camera and halfheartedly did a wide shot. Then I heard a voice said, "Why don't you take a picture of me?"

    After some introduction and pleasantries, I took this photo of Ms. Cynthia Felice. She is rather proud of her golden hat. The room is reasonable dark and I asked if she could hold for a 1/4 second, and she said with a twinkle in her eyes, "but why, of course"
