    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    Alright, I am starting off August with a photo not from my projects - my niece is getting engaged and after I took a few usual engagement photos, I took a couple unconventional ones...

    Oh, I got a HTML5 Gallery plugin and now I can make web galleries for my 4x5 portraiture projects easily!

    Now they should work on any devices, including the iStuff!

    Ted Williams and Arthur Griffin
    The Swing
    The Swing, 1939 © Arthur Griffin

    Ted Williams and Arthur Griffin met in 1939; Ted was about to seize the role of Rookie of the Year, and Eastman Kodak wanted Griffin to test its new color film. Griffin was at Fenway Park with his usual assortment of equipment, working on a story, in black and white, for the Boston Globe. He also carried with him his 4˝ x 5˝ view camera and Kodak’s new color film made specifically for these view cameras.

    Their careers rising simultaneously, these two men connected that historic day when Williams eagerly posed for two hours. The resulting photos, the first color images ever taken of Williams, provide a unique and exceptional collection of photographs of Williams early in his career.

    At age 19, Ted Williams was not yet soured by carping sports columnists or feuds with management and fans, so he gladly agreed to pose. Griffin experimented for himself and Kodak that summer day; the color film was slow and not good for action shots, but Williams, exhibiting his batting stance and swing, was so engaging a figure that Griffin was determined to catch him.

    At the time, the Globe printed only in black and white, and Griffin filed away the striking color photographs of “The Splendid Splinter.” By the time color photography became more widely used in the press, Williams’ amiability had diminished, and he had no time to pose for new photographs. This undeveloped film of Williams was discovered 50 years later, and the images are now part of his and Griffin’s legacies in both baseball and photographic history.

    Arthur Griffin was a pioneer in the use of both color film and the 35-millimeter camera and published six books. Considered New England’s “photographer laureate,” he spent 60 years as a photographic journalist on assignments that took him around the world and into the company of the renowned.

    This collection of photographs of Ted Williams made on that fateful day in 1939 is a unique tribute to this late baseball legend and has been widely praised as some of the finest baseball photographs taken. The images represent not only baseball history but also photographic history. It’s a great story and one that needs to be shared with the public.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    I decided to do some 4x5 today, but lacked a model so I ended up using a tape measure and some guesswork to do a self-portrait. As I was developing a pair of negatives, our member of parliament (we have a federal election next month) knocked on the door. I knew him long before he first was elected, so I invited him into the darkroom and he watched while his handlers fumed outside. He stayed to see the negatives come out of the tank, and that might just have been the best part of his day (he does 200 doorsteps a day at 2 minutes each!)

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    It's been at least 5 years since I pulled one of my large format cameras out of the closet. A few of my friends asked me to show them the basics of how these cameras work. None had ever had their hands on a view camera. I guess it's like riding a bicycle....I had a few wobbles, but we did mange to get a few decent shots. We experimented with forward lens tilt to dramatically change the plane of focus on the two "mug shots". Then a straight forward table top shot.

    Portraits shot with a Toyo 45AII and Rodenstock 180mm APO Sironar-N lens. Table top shot with a Sinar X and Nikkor-W 210mm lens.

    Fuji Neopan 100 Quickload film...expired in 2009, but refrigerated since I bought it. I found several boxes of B&W and color Fuji Quickload film (mostly 2007-2009) which are priceless to me now. Also several boxes of B&W film that expired in the late 1990s. Time to get out there and shoot it I guess.

    I had the film processed by a local custom photo lab (Kellers) here in Anchorage. I was glad to know they still process 4x5 film....but only B&W.

    The scan? Didn't feel like firing up my Epson V750, so while I was looking at the negatives on the light table with the Mamiya 3x 6x7 loupe (I absolutely love this loupe), I just pointed my iPhone 6 thru it and took the pics. A few quick adjustments in PS and here you have it....good enough for Letter size prints, which don't look too bad.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    An experiment with pre-flashing the paper by making an exposure (1/4 the 'taking' exposure) with a piece of plain paper in front of the lens.

    Chamonix 10x8, Symmar-S 360/6.8, Kenthene RC glossy Gr2, Ilford MG developer, V850 scans:


    Paper Negative #16 - no preflash by chrism229, on Flickr


    Paper Negative #17 - paper preflashed by chrism229, on Flickr

    These were actually the 5th and 6th exposures I took. The first four were attempts at guessing the exposure, using two CFT lights and one strobe. I ended up taking these two with eight exposures of one second, and during each one second exposure the flash fired twice! Obviously my guess at rating this paper at ISO12 was, umm, inaccurate, as my flash meter had indicated that a single one second exposure would do it.

    This is an older image because I no longer shoot 4x5 film but it's a favorite from the Trona Pinnacles. Shot on Provia F 100 likely with the Schneider Super Symmar 110mm XL lens. I call it "The Guardian" but I doubt it has a real official name.

    It was scanned by E-6 Film Processing | Digital Scanning | Slide Imprinting | Historical Processor Chrome | AGX Imaging Mike does a great job using a Hasselblad X5 for $12.50 a shot any film size up to 4x5 and 617.Attachment 115073

    Amazing tonality, I don't think even my IQ180 is that nuanced, but haven't done much black and white with it.

    Thank you. No, I don't think an MFDB can quite match it yet, though images from high MP backs come close in resolution to 4x5. LF is shooting with a low stressed lens on a very high resolution medium and MF shooting incredibly corrected lenses on a medium with limited resolution. The LF way gives more possibilities to allow for some rendering character, with MF you would lose too much resolution. But there are no technical advancements on the horizon for LF, so MF will catch up in resolution soon. Luckily you can't quite match the look of LF on a smaller format, so there will hopefully still be a place for film for a bit.
    For now LF is a cheap way to get into the high resolution game and I wonder why not more people go this route.

    Despite my best efforts I can't get digital to give me the look (tonality) I get from 4x5 b & w negs.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    This time of year I get sentimental feelings for film photography so I pulled out some old negatives and dusted off the scanner to re-awaken my sentiments. These are a few 1600 ppi scans of Polaroid type 55 negs shot 11 years ago with my 4x5. All scanned with an Epson 700 at about 1600 ppi with VueScan. Processed in LR and then toned with a proofing QTR-icc profile made for printing with the Canon iPF6100 on Canson Platine with a neutral warm curve developed for the TrueBW RIP. I'm also going to take the 4x5 out again and shoot some of the old Type 55 I have in storage to see if it will still hold and image.

    Hi Carl. I have two boxes of Polaroid Type 55 4x5 film in my refrigerator that I bought just before it was discontinued. I had never shot Polaroid film before, but figured someday I would like to give it a try. Perhaps when the spring of 2016 arrives here in Alaska, I will finally do that. Thanks for posting these photos and reminding me of that film. Unlike wine, it probably doesn't get better with age.

    True, but like wine type 55 price does increase with age (eBay).

    I spent a little time in the driveway today. First shot illustrates what you can do with camera movements—see how the left side of the headlight is in focus, and so is the right side of the window on the house?

    To get that the camera looked like this:

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    My first try with Galaxy paper—I contributed to their Kickstarter about six months ago, and they went to Russia to get some paper coated with a fast emulsion, and it arrived this week. Many people were annoyed when the purported reversal paper turned out to be ordinary (but fast) paper, with reversal processing required. Harman make a direct reversal paper and it was hoped this would be the same. For myself, I am happy with the product save for one annoyance. Most photographic printing paper has an ISO of 3. This is said to be 125, and I metered it that way, allowed for a third of a stop of bellows compensation—my 450mm lens was extended to 600mm to focus this close—and it came out just right. My only problem is that when looked at 100% magnification there are all sorts of black speckles on the film. I don't think these are from my water supply.

    TMX 4x5 in Rodinal 1+50

    I saw more photo opportunities in the one morning I spend there than I did in the 9 days I was there in february 2013. Unfortunately you can only be in one spot for sunrise, especially a cloudless one like this.

    That's very true. It is hard to plan where to go with the weather. But perseverance sometimes pays off and you are in the right spot and have the camera ready.

    I continue to experiment, now with a used Arca Swiss F-line (171mm standards) from KEH. Such a nice camera, and relatively portable given the right rail setup.

    "Product Shot" of my Pioneer RT-707. Just playing around with camera movements in my house, with a bit of lighting provided by an LED array (I usually use these for my YouTube videos).

    Further experimentation with a new lens (Schneider 120mm Super-Symmar), and really, extremely, very expired Tri-X 320 (grainy in the shadows -- any hints?):

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    10x8 takes lots of work. I've spent six hours (possibly all wasted) on this so far, and Flickr won't upload it.


    So here it is from another site. Chamonix 10x8, Nikkor-M 300mm/f9, Ilford Hp5+ @640, Diafine in BTZS tubes, Epson V850 scan:

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    This is an iPhone pic (complete with annoying reflections) of my first ever tintype. It's been 30 years since I used a large format camera and the advances in continuous lighting sure make it easier to compose and focus! The rapid processing of wet plates make it much more like the digital than the old sheet film experience. Not as fast as polaroids, but... well, it's different. I'd forgotten how beautiful a large ground glass image could be!

    I took four plates today and will take more tomorrow, then I hope to have something nicer to share. I'm just too excited about getting anything. This is a workshop at the Penumbra Foundation.

    Here's another one from the workshop, scanned and dusted. My grandmother-in-law's tea set. 48 seconds at f/11 in very bright light.

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    Hi there,
    I dont much how much comes from the large format and how much that probably many large format photographers are very good photographers- but I really love many of the images posted here! Thanks for sharing!

    I fall for that one every time. Fun with Tech Cams. Fun with the Leica S. Fun with Large Format. The pictures are all fantastic, dammit!

    It's the photographers.

    That looks fantastic! I'm not sure I want to bother with 8x10, but it's definitely calling.

    Recently went on a trip to KY, where I grew up. Got some pretty nice shots along Howard's Creek. Here are a couple, of about 5 or 6 worth posting.
    (I'm almost embarrassed to post my puny little waterfall/cascade after the huge ones posted above!)

    yes sure, great photographers, I still dig the smooth transitions of those images when a LF camera is in the right hands.

    Not sure why my Flickr links keep going bad (if I click the link I am taken to the photo), but here's another one:

    Nice textures and tones there, and I like all the diagonals.
