My first crack at shooting a tight 8x10 portrait... and I was ambitious enough to try it on our 3 year old. Thankfully she held still enough for me to get focus. :)

Still figuring this 4x5 business out. I didn't have enough developer in the tank as you can see. As a punishment and reminder to myself, I am uploading the uncropped version.

Nice attempt in high contrast lighting.

Is the underexposed area a Holder issue or development issue? I guess it would be completely black if it were a holder issue...

I would guess that it was a development issue. I had 8 sheets in a yankee tank and all of them have the same problem, so unless all 4 of my holders are crap... I had 700 ml of developer in, anyone know how much is required to fill?

11x14 contact print...tossed on the bed and rephotographed w/ digital -- thus the hot upper corner

Testing an old brass lens of some sort. About a f45 stop placed in the lens -- was not quite centered (about 1/8 off).
It was too bright for wide open. About a second exposure (w/cap). Efke 100 IR film, no filter.
Printed on some Ektalure (the border is actually a nice warm-white all around the image area.)

A very nice mix of simple shapes and tones working together. Lightest being skin, then foreground/right, left, and clothes/hair. Then atop that composition/B&W goodness, it's a nice portrait with a good connection to the model.

My first 8X10 work in nearly 13 years. Shot these yesterday in my front yard. Agfa Green xRay film, shot at 200, HC110 dil B (in hangers by nitrogen burst - 2 second bursts, every 10 seconds for 5 min at 70 degrees). KMV with 250mm f/6.7 Fujinon. This is a copy stand shot with my Nikon D2x and a 35mm f/2 (negative still inside the protective sleeve - quick and dirty). Photoshop processing, hope to make silver print of this next weekend. These are completely straight prints.

I have just started using xRay film, I completely blew the first 6 shots because I misread the box (thought the film was supposed to be rated at 100 - but in truth that was the quantity of film in the box).

Nice Brian! Good to see the woods in fleaburg... I think you are getting there, particularly with the first one, and have a good subject of kids in the forest. The second reminds me of the innumerable "forts" we built in the woods in the days before x-box and cell phones

I fondly recall fly fishing in the river down by the bridges in the early 80s, and picking up spent bullets along the railroad tracks by the battlefield on field trips in the 60s.

So I have a question, what exactly do you do with all of this Polaroid 8 x 10 stuff that you guys have? Do you still use this film as a check for taking an actual Film Photo afterward, or are you using it for artistic purposes to actually make this photo as the end product?

And what do you do with these portrait images, are these something that the models are paying for, or are you selling them for stock, or what?

I know this is kind of a loaded question, but it seems like with the cost of these images and how much detail you put into them and how extraordinary they are, I'm just interested in the after-capture stuff.

I don't believe anyone is still using Polaroid as a "check" at roughly $20/sheet ... for me it is the final product that I may or may not scan and work further on in a fully digital workflow. The previous image is not retouched, some of the others you've seen from me might have been altered to some extend. The Polaroid is the base for the final product, no different than a film or digital impression I guess.

As for the after-capture loaded stuff ... I've sold few of them and I do have plans that hopefully will play out over time ;)

Thanks for sharing :)

Sadly I'll probably never shoot the 8x10 stuff, I'll be picking up an 8x10 this year, but will never have the $ to get the full setup with the processor etc, and then master using it, but I can appreciate the beauty and skill of those who have come before me ;)

Beautiful girl. I just love her expression. I love the depth of field and how you are drawn to her gorgeous eyes! The composition and lighting are top notch too. You really hit this one out of the park. Absolutely stunning portrait!

Was this a scanner print or a scanner negative?

I can't tell as I'm on my phone, but it seems as if there is a lot of sharpening, but it could be the film of course.

I would guess that it was a development issue. I had 8 sheets in a yankee tank and all of them have the same problem, so unless all 4 of my holders are crap... I had 700 ml of developer in, anyone know how much is required to fill?

Easy peasy. Just fill the tank with water. Pour that into a graduate. You now have your answer.

I assume you are charging the reinactors for your portraits. May I ask how you go about doing that? Do you post the processed images online for orders? Or do you charge a sitting fee up front with the idea that you will mail them prints later? Etc.

The reason I ask is because I have been creating LF portraits of folks who LARP (Live Action Role Play) on weekends. Now I want to go to some of their regional and national events but have no idea of the best way to create the portraits then ship the results later. I fully know that I need to get my money up front. But do I charge a sitting fee then later post online to take orders? Or do I get it all up front? What works best for you?

Thanks.

Hello AT

I didn't go to the event with profit in mind on this occasion. I actually drove an hour to get there, because I wanted images of this period. Then I developed the film, scanned the neg, and emailed them the image.. There was a couple there pouring collodion too, but I didn't see them taking in money as well. They were shooting tin types with an 8x10.

Having said that, I did shoot a Civil War Christmas ball, where I shot digital as well as LF. I only sold a couple of packages even then. There was approx 50 folks, or 25 couples, and I think I sold 3 packages. I didn't take any preview equipment with me, so they could see the digital work on site. There wasn't much interest in getting their portraits taken to start with it seems.

It seems it's not something they feel they have to have, unlike H.S. Senior images, or newborn. Kind of like Harley Davidson riders. They'll spend 3K on chrome for the bike, but not 20.00 for a nice image of it. ;)

What happened? I missed it?

20-Apr-2014, 17:50
These weren't all shot in the springtime - but I did copy them today. I have been sorting thru all of my negatives, found my 8X10 from 2002 thru 2005. Thought I'd post the better ones here. all were shot with my old Deardorff 8X10 on either Kodak Super XX or Ekfe 25, processed in Pyro. These were made during a time that I was attending a large format photography course at Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, AZ (Rod Klukas was the instructor). I really, really miss that class. I learned so much (and have forgotten much since then). I would drive up once a week from Tucson (a 90 mile drive) to start class at like 7pm. Would get home around midnight! Wow - those were the days. Anyway, here are some portraits from that period of my life;

The fact that you are seeing extra density in the print means that there is less density in the negative.

My guess is that this is a processing problem. How are you processing your film? I'm guessing that the end of the sheet didn't receive the same development as the rest of the sheet.

My guess is it's bellows sagging - had it with my Chamonix with the Universal bellows hanging a bit low. Since I started putting my loup between the bellows and the camera the problem vanished.
You can check it by looking at the groundglass and meanwhile pushing the bellows up.

Wow, i wasn't aware that you could pull such good shadow detail and lower the contrast with x-ray film to this degree, this is a beautiful shot!!

Also, forgive me for not knowing much about the Europe and sizes, but this is basically a 9 x7 image? Or is this one of those odd sizes that's specific to x-ray film?

It is one of the standard european film sizes, a bit smaller than 8x10 (7,08x9,45 INCH). You can still buy Fomapan & Ilford films in that size. The modern film holders are the same size as 8x10 (just like 5x7 and 13x18cm film holders are the same). As to film, I did some tests, and I rate it 25ISO, and develop it using a Jobo print Drum on a Jobo processor. I am developing two sheets at a time in D23 (dilution 1:1.3 150ml of stock and 200ml of water) for 4minutes 30 seconds

It is one of the standard european film sizes, a bit smaller than 8x10 (7,08x9,45 INCH). You can still buy Fomapan & Ilford films in that size. The modern film holders are the same size as 8x10 (just like 5x7 and 13x18cm film holders are the same). As to film, I did some tests, and I rate it 25ISO, and develop it using a Jobo print Drum on a Jobo processor. I am developing two sheets at a time in D23 (dilution 1:1.3 150ml of stock and 200ml of water) for 4minutes 30 seconds

Wait, let me get this straight, so if I own an 8x10 (10x8 for you cheeky folk) I can buy 18x24 film holders, but they will fit in my 8x10 back as the size of the holder is the same? Only the slots inside the holder are different? Is that right?

And then use this size film (which doesn't seem to come in 8x10) in my 8x10 camera?

I cannot be 100% sure, as I have an east german camera that has it's own glass plate holders, and I shoot negatives using special film insert, but from what I've heard (and the internet says it too) the 8x10in and 18x24cm modern holders have the same outer size.

This is a couple that asked for me to take their portraits on their "wedding day". They got married the legal way first, which is very typical with the expat community in South Korea, and will have their ceremony in the United States this summer.

I introduce the bride and the groom from April 7th 2014: Chris and Mandy.

Thanks ckagy ! Owing to a great luck I found an Aero Ektar and a friend who prepared it for me, I can't afford a real soft focus but when I watch this portrait I think that my Aero can do the trick !

I hope to come back for more.

Till then have a nice day ! :)
