Excellent! Sometimes that "expired" look fits just right...

But it begs the question, is your film older than your daughter? :)

What is going on with the subject's legs, unusual markings?

Its a homemade ringlight (circle board with lightbulbs) that one of my students built for the purpose of reflections.

Valerio is a friend of mine, and also a budding photographer. This was his first time to see a large format camera in action! He helped me sort out the details of shooting Rockland Tintypes indoors with strobe. It took a LOT of power, but we made it work. The darker one is 4 pops of 650ws from one strobe, the brighter one was 3 pops of 650ws from two strobes. Both were about 3 feet from the subject.

Sorry, I haven't had time to do a proper scan of the tintypes, so crappy iPhone photos will have to suffice for today. :)

Sheldon, those are both wonderful and have a gorgeous 3-D rendering. At wide-open, did you have trouble getting them all in focus? Or did you use some tilt?

Sheldon N
11-Feb-2015, 00:15
Thanks! No tilt, and yes I had a heck of a time getting them all to stay in the plane of focus. It took many promises and bribes. :)

Sergie, Sheldon: Those are wonderful! There is something about the spontaneity of children that you both captured beautifully. And Sheldon, looking at your three threesome, the phrase "herding cats" comes to mind, you certainly managed it!

At least thats what i am gathering. There will be long and cruel summer in Dallas soon.. so i would have plenty of time to dork with free UV light.

And less costumed one, from other day - i kept getting weird vertical overexposed line on negatives, in same place, so we just were trying to get where damn thing coming from - process or i actually had bad batch of film.
Turns out to be film.

If nothing else, it makes Ben/Sergei's stuff look good and it's practice for my girls and me. Still got a ways to go before I'm happy, but I'll keep refining. My girls can handle 1/30 second exposures for posing with the mortensen basic lighting with metal reflector, but not 1/2 second as done with the weaker and bigger illuminating softbox modeling light here. The other photo where her hands were in a better position was motion blurred!

1/2s on tmy2 8x10, 16" B&L Sigmar portrait lens.
