I'm kind of with you. The first one is a great portrait, she has a nice look, but the second one is pushing the game forward.

Thanks Alessandro!

Shawn's photo is part of my https://www.facebook.com/Transformations.CosplayPortraits project. Shawn does a lot of charity work as his persona ObiShawn - in other word, this is his "casual"/normal clothing. He has built two (street worthy) Star Wars art cars. As his wife said, this is the car he drives to the supermarket when she asks him to buy grocery.

Excellent portrait, her facial expression is great as are the top hat and camera, I enjoy my 6x9 as well! The last time I used my Super Ikonta in public a young lady about her age begged me to hold it and fervently asked where she could find one!

Thank you, Ari. Yeah, it would be, except for the light. Even with 100 iso it was at 1/2s- 1/4s exposure (by the ear.. ) . Wouldn't get too far with collodion there, specially considering time to set up things. But i will go back to that place with collodion again :) Less bridal dress though. Its was more of test shoot - never worked with her before, didn't want to stress too much , felt bad enough to get her out in cold-ish weather :)

Thanks! It's all natural light with the curtain covered picture window in the background as the sole source of light (with some reflection off the interior walls acting as a fill.) This was a "hail Mary" shot, the last of our sitting done in quickly fading daylight. For this the lens is wide-open and the exposure was around 2 secs. The blur in the foreground is due to extreme lens flaring from pointing the old uncoated lens into the light source. I burned it in a bit to tame it. The Vestas are great lenses which are often ignored because they're not exotic. (Although they do have some great tricks up their sleeves if you're in the know.) I really love boring old uncoated Tessars too.

Symmar-S 300, Kodak E100G 4x5.

My father taught me virtually everything I know about photography and the Dunkelkammer. He’s so analog through and through (he never used a computer) he calls digital stuff "electrical photography". When I bought my first 4x5 Linhof for a ridiculously low sum he was so enticed by it that I left it with him and he’s using it since. I wanted to give him a box of Ektachrome and a Tetenal E6 kit for his 81st birthday, but he dismissed using it ("I did color in the past, it’s too finicky").

So we just took this one sheet on the occasion.

For this image and the image with the black cloth around her face...is it supposed to mean something? It feels like the woman is being objectified (if that's the right word) and the photographs come across as tasteless. I mean what is the point of covering the face and having her wear a corset/lingerie then adding some sort of cooking pot on top of her head? :confused:

I am sorry to give you that impression but believe me there is no particular reason. She just want to try wearing a series of mask. Here near Venice in Italy there is a sort of tradition of masking especially in this season. But believe me there is no project behind tis few shot of my wife. It was just a boring afternoon and i had to test the light that i self made and a lens that was repaired. No second meaning or other deep meanings. What about the cooking pot. well i don't see nothing bad on her wearing that kind of helmet. She is wearing a gas mask and an helmet. We were joking.

The light that was reflected by the cocking device on her head create that kind of aura that is not visible in the other picture. The lens is uncoated and the parasite light could be very dangerous.

You noticed the cart :)? Jumanji, I've returned to this portrait a bunch of times, because it is striking. I think it is a combination of how relaxed the young lady looks, plus those very long legs (which catch the eye not only because they are there, but they are the lightest part of the image, so your eye goes there first, and then looks at the rest). All in all, a portrait which your subject should enjoy for a long time.

Great stuff Pfiltz, Stephane!

I noticed in the FS section, someone was selling a 9" Gundlach Hyperion and had high praise for it. Instead of coveting it, I went to my garage's secret lens stash and got mine out and made a lensboard for it so I could give it a try. I'd bought it earlier in the year because the price was right, not because I was ready to use it. Now I was ready. I was itching to shoot some film before the weekend was over.

My experience with SF lenses is mostly with the Reinhold Wollaston Meniscus, Verito, and Kodak 305 portrait. This lens seems like the Kodak in that the spherical aberration and pleasing focus is definitely skewed toward the background which is good. I'll have to take it outdoors to see where it differs from the other lenses. Focusing on some Christmas lights, the near out of focus were halos and the far out of focus turned from ideal bokeh circles into nice pearly dots. This lens has a very round iris as would be expected of a classic that doesn't use a studio shutter. I'm going to need more outings with this to determine more of it's character and get the best out of it. It's a little prone to lower contrast wide open, perhaps because I was not careful with my lighting, but it got snappier just half a stop down. These are with tmax 400 film in pyrocat hd. 2 100w equiv. CFL bulbs in aluminum dishes lit things, such as the nasty shadow on the paper background and of course the subjects and provided speeds of 1/20 to 1/30 sec.

. Initially it seems to produce solid 1920's looking style without much effort. I'd prefer a more personal style, but that will happen with time and film consumption.

A bit interesting but even in small web size it looks like you've made the background on the right sharper than her face so you tend to look back there instead of at your sitter.

True, the focus is also behind her. With the wild swing, it's puttin her left eye, dress near the shins, one of the tree trunks, and the grass in the back in focus.

I'm doing a number of portraits to figure out focus for portraits. This was the last shot and she was hoping for something a little different, so this is what I came up with.

The only portrait(s) I made this month, but it was an important one to me.

Please excuse the boring family shot but I really like the results.

Also - the roughly 10 second self-timer in the Lanthar doesn't seem like a lot, until your whole family is standing there waiting for it to click...;)

Few people EVER like to sit for these shots, but they are very important for family history. Hopefully you print it and put everybody's name and age on the back, then give a copy to them all and tell them to keep it for their children.

Since I have the family pics, i get calls to produce an album mostly for funerals, and wow, do the survivors want those old images of loved ones.

Please carefully PRINT the names on the back, as most script is unreadable.


Great job also!

That's a great idea (writing the names/ages on the back). Thanks!

I'm making a couple of contact prints (8x10, b&w) of the family photo I did of my girlfriend's family for Christmas/New Year's presents tomorrow night. I can't do color darkroom work yet but I'll have this negative of my family for the future...digital prints will suffice for now.

Some older stuff that I had to keep under wraps for more than a year. All shot with the Speed Graphic / Aero Ektar combo.
