Damn, that's fine work Ken. I love the quality of the blur, as well, and Hugo is quite right the window reflection is something special.

That's funny Hugo. I was thinking Kertész, too, (a perennial favorite of mine).

Good work, Ken!

Interesting, is this different than a Macro thread?

I tried to upload an image of my "close up" work but apparently uploads aren't working again...

If there is a macro thread, I couldn't find it.

Jere's another: not Macro, not Still Life but simply taken at close distance.

I personally... Would say 'No'.

It's OK with me.

The items I photograph often have a certain curvilinear charm, not unlike the human form when approached as an aesthetic object.

My intention was to merely to share photos that are made at close distance, not macro.

Pali K
22-Feb-2015, 10:43
Love your work Ken. Beautiful photos here.

I need to get my Tessar back on the lensboard.

My vote for nude would be No in this thread because I often visit this site from work and having dedicated nude threads help control content I see when I am at work.

Well that's 2 wise suggestions: let's say no nudes then.

If your cable release is quite short does that count as a photo "made at close distance"?

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macro_photography):


"Macro photography (or photomacrography or macrography, and sometimes macrophotography), is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size..."


If your cable release is quite short does that count as a photo "made at close distance"?

Yes, especially if your arm is quite short :rolleyes:

I am really diggin the tone on tone stuff, and find myself studying the highlight reflection for additional info; beyond the image notes the reflection indicates this to be shot in winter. Thats pretty cool, pot steam may even add to the single photo story.

While this may not at first seem to be "staged" it is difficult to imagine the components are strictly found "naturally". But the other "close distance" work of yours I see suggests you prefer items which appear to have been photographed in a natural state. I would first ask if this is correct and then ask "why"?

Thanks.

edit: by "photographed in a natural state" I mean "less formally".

Very nicely done Bob!

The original shadow, under the Object on the table (*Now acting as a 'Highlight')...
Is extremely well thought out and executed!

Yeah, I keep going back to this. On one hand I REALLY like it; I am conflicted though about the tension created by it is "off centered-ness". It's almost as if the "brain" appearance adds enough tension and the lack of centeredness pushes it out of bounds for me.

Some people have a special talent for creating beautiful scenes which feel natural, but when I try to arrange things they tend to look stiff and contrived.

I don't own any lights and don't have a studio. I'm an amateur and haven't had any training in those areas. My training from Fred Picker consisted of walking very slowly around cemeteries, barns and river beds, using a viewing filter with attention to precise camera placement. I suspect he got the same training from Ansel and passed it along intact.

In my house there's a small pantry with a glass door nearby. That's where my wife stores tea pots, dinner ware, a large ceramic pitcher, etc. On snowy days I have found that the light is very nice for this sort of subject: her pantry becomes my "studio".

Everything we do is staged and contrived. In the sense that I chose the camera placement, the teapot photo was staged too - but for me it was a discovery, no different than if I had been climbing over rocks at the beach and stumbled upon a promising arrangement.

I think I could appreciate the tones and curves more if the outside reflections were less defined and focused; if you altered the highlight with a silk, either inside to remove or outside to keep the window panes.

I can see the lines much more clearly and to me this is approaching feminine. I been thinkin about this alot. I love the that you left the table reflection in, and the way it curls around to the handle, it's almost "pregnant" with seduction. I love the little chiaroscuro at the focal point and the way the rim echos the curve of a woman's hips and thighs.

I prefer the first, Ken. The sweeping radial curve of the type bars offers a counter-point to the more grid-like layout of the keys. Plus the tiny circles of chrome surrounding the keys echoes the larger chromed curve, too.

He would know and a shear pin is supposed to cleanly shear.

Thanks for the reply.

I used to test bolts by pulling them until they cracked apart on a huge computerized hydraulic press. Mostly torque to angle bolts that are best in an elastic loading condition. I would test and graph for repeatability.

Never a bad idea. Sometimes my favorite image from a group of shots loses its luster after some time has passed. Plus, the opinions of others are a poor measure of what is "good," my own included. ;)

I like the first typewrite image better too for what is worth for basically the same reasons---the curve and the details of the typeface on the bit of the mechanism that hits the paper (well, the ribbon).

I though shear bolts were relatively hard to as to snap, not soft so as to not elastically deform. One summer when I was farming I had no fun at all replacing shear pins/bolts on my baler. Also inadvertently sheared off a 3/4" hitch pin. That made an impressive snap when it let go. Took quite a bit of oxy/acetylene to get the tongue of the baler back to the right shape... Metallurgy's not my specialty.

I did this one years ago...with a crown graphic onto which I reverse-mounted, onto a piece of masonite, the old but wonderful 55mm f/3.5 Micro-Nikkor. For the photo, I poured a bit of aluminum powder into a dixie cup, then gently floated some watch movement parts onto the surface of this. No shutter on the lens, so, in a completely dark room, I first focussed by the strong side-light of a desk lamp - turned this off to remove the dark slide, then turned it back on for a few seconds for the exposure. 132573

Cool. This gives me all kinds of ideas. Did the Micro-Nikkor cover the entire 4x5?

John Layton

Although I cropped the image slightly for composition, I do remember that the lens just covered 4x5 - keeping in mind the much greater than life size ratio did require a bit of extension. I don't remember the aperture setting - but I believe it was 16 (I seem to remember that lens stopped down to f/22 - but I was afraid of diffraction so did not use this).

The jpeg rendition which you see here does lack a bit of sharpness - the micro-nikkor is very impressive in this regard...and truly surprising for this (not exactly intended) use. But do notice how the tops of the pinions are out of focus...very narrow dof! (ha...spell-check changes dof to dog!) I also did mount a shutter to this setup a bit later - cutting a hole in a rear lens cap and mounting a naked shutter to this - then affixing to the rear of the reversed lens. But again, for this photo, I simply used the light switch and counted seconds.

A few years after I took this photo, the anatomy lab at Dartmouth pretty much gave me (they were downsizing) the most amazing LF (4x5) closeup setup - a Nikon Multiphot, complete with some amazing lenses, light stages, etc., but for some reason I never used this setup that much, and eventually sold it.

A few older shots, the hinge was shot on Ektapan more than likely with a 270mm tele lens. The playground equipment was on P/N type 55 with a 150 Caltar, and the violet may have been Ektapan shot with the 150 Caltar. The Okra blossom was done with a Crown Graphic and its 127mm lens, no idea about the film, maybe Tri X.

Randy,

My oldest film is some Gevaert 5x7 that expired in 1944 which works surprisingly well. (See here (http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/showthread.php?98527-Still-Life-Images-2013&p=1052084&viewfull=1#post1052084) for an example shot with that film.) I always test each "new" batch of old film, but I can usually get close to an exposure and development target with a single sheet. The T-Max 400 from 2001 has barely lost any speed. I shoot it at EI 320 and but develop for 12 min. in HC-110 1:39 to boost the contrast.

The rule of thumb about film losing a full stop of speed per decade is generally true in my experience, with faster films degrading more quickly and very slow films holding up quite well.

Ken,

I enjoy these old typewriter photos. I am curious as to how you set it up or what movements you used and how extreme you need to be to do this. I think I kinda see how it was done by examining where sharp focus is and isn't. I'm also curious as to how much you stopped down the lens.

Earlier this summer I tried a combo of front tilt and swing to get a wooded trail in focus along with two signs one close, one a ways down the path. I got a little too hurried on account of the Mosquitos I guess because the signs and the diagonal connecting them are in focus but the other corners, not so much. Needed smaller aperture, I think.

Thanks

These are made with a certain measure of improvisation, but judging from the oblique angle of the subject, tilt and swing were used to get focus along a diagonal. Apparently there was some shift too, since the typewriter keys at which we are looking straight ahead, are to the right of center. The Sinar P camera makes all this easy, since all movements are geared: you just dial them in while under the dark cloth.

That was probably made with the lens stopped down just a bit, like f/9... enough to render the sharp things sharp, but no more.

Fr. Mark
26-Aug-2015, 17:30
Ken,

Thanks. This Spring I bought a Sinar P kit from Igor Camera along with a Sinar shutter some DB lenses and later and from a different source a tripod and head that handle the weight and add to the work-out dimension of the photo taking. It is SO much easier to use (once you get it where you need it...did I mention it is heavy?) than other LF cameras I've tried that it is hard to believe. I'm also loving the 5x7 format.

Thanks for the explanation, it's more/less what I thought except I missed the shift and would've guessed a smaller aperture. I think it is on the articles page of this site someone recommends focusing at wide open, stopping down and re-examining the ground glass and if it looks ok, go ahead and stop down one more stop! This would've greatly improved ~16 or so 5x7's I made this summer, portraits and landscapes both. But, sometimes less focus/depth of field works, as in your picture.

5X7 neg contact copied to 4X5 HP5+ and enlarged onto 11x14 RC, last week and again copied for posting here by iPod 6.

I gave a print of the second image, to a happy fellow photographer. He gave me much much more. Raw materials!

Ethan, on the negative can you see the fine structure of the filament? Most are a spiral wind wound again into a spiral and on line there not enough info. I like it. I made a similar enlargement of a silver dollar onto 4x5 with a 90mm el cheapo enlarger lens some time back. The Eagle's wings just barely fit on a 4x5. I should maybe do more macro work...

reedvalve
6-Aug-2016, 19:31
Yes, the filament is visible, though not as defined as I wanted it to be. But given the crazy bellows factor I'm pretty happy the way it turned out.

I wish I had some serious vacuum tube equipment around to photograph. I should bring a camera over to my friends rehearsal studio where he keeps his Mesa Boogie...

reedvalve
7-Aug-2016, 06:47
well... obviously the filament is visible... I meant to say that the windings have definition, especially when the curves or levels are tweaked in PS.

I had to go through channels to get permission for my large format project, which was granted for the summer, but will have to end when the students come back. So I have about another week of access. Of course people walk around with cell phone cameras, and even DSLRs with no permission! I have tried to find places where I'm not in anyone's way, and time it later in the day, when fewer people are there.

Did lots of this type of experimentation back in the day - and would like to come full circle and do more.

http://pre05.deviantart.net/e41d/th/pre/i/2017/073/f/c/bud_vase3_by_rich14-db2cb36.jpg

Hello,

I'm just getting back into using my 4x5 after letting it sit idle for about 20 years. I had forgotten how many large and small details of taking a good photographic image must be mastered. My digital equipment has so spoiled me. The "muscle memory" is slowly coming back.

I've been a drum scanner operator for over 30 years (professionally and now for my own pleasure). I've recently confirmed that using my D800e DSLR to "scan" my 35mm, medium format and 4x5 negatives and transparencies gives better results than the best scans I've been able to produce over the years and I've had access to every kind of drum scanner that has existed. I am really amazed at the capability of the Sony sensor in the D800. Resolution, dynamic range, color fidelity are superb.

I scan 4x5 images in 4 (slightly overlapping) quarters, pre-process and invert negatives in Adobe Camera Raw and bring into Photoshop for stitching and final processing. The whole process takes just minutes (compared to almost an hour on the drum scanner) for a complete 4x5 at 200mb,16bits (B&W) or 600mb RGB.

This image is of a tiny bud vase (about the size of a large chicken egg).

Hello,

I'm just getting back into using my 4x5 after letting it sit idle for about 20 years. I had forgotten how many large and small details of taking a good photographic image must be mastered. My digital equipment has so spoiled me. The "muscle memory" is slowly coming back.

I've been a drum scanner operator for over 30 years (professionally and now for my own pleasure). I've recently confirmed that using my D800e DSLR to "scan" my 35mm, medium format and 4x5 negatives and transparencies gives better results than the best scans I've been able to produce over the years and I've had access to every kind of drum scanner that has existed. I am really amazed at the capability of the Sony sensor in the D800. Resolution, dynamic range, color fidelity are superb.

I scan 4x5 images in 4 (slightly overlapping) quarters, pre-process and invert negatives in Adobe Camera Raw and bring into Photoshop for stitching and final processing. The whole process takes just minutes (compared to almost an hour on the drum scanner) for a complete 4x5 at 200mb,16bits (B&W) or 600mb RGB.

This image is of a tiny bud vase (about the size of a large chicken egg).

It's fun to get back into things you haven't done for a while, always challenging.

Rich, lovely tones, details, and luminance. a very rich image, one to pause with and take in. The form also invites the imagination to probe its past.
Hendrick, that bird is a strong and sad image. the Buffed chest seems so proud and strong.
Ken, I really enjoy the detail, and the way the napkins transform into an abstract as they recede to black.

Here is a lili I received and photographed on my Birthday last month.

Freshly roasted coffee beans. I used to shoot a lot of food displays. Shooting food is great - you get to eat what you shoot!

I roast coffee in small batches - 70g at a time in a hot-air popcorn popper. I make about a pound each roasting. This is about 100g. The glass dish is about 5" across. Fresh out of roasting - smells great!

I'm trying to wrestle Arista Edu Ultra 100 (Fomapan 100) into submission. I'm not liking this film too much. Mostly soot and chalk rendition. I've been through HC110 1:64, RO9 1:50 (previous postings). The reciprocity correction needed for this film is ridiculous.

This image was processed in D23 for 11 minutes. D23 is by far the best to this point. At least I'm getting some mid-tones. And it looks sharper. I'm waiting for some Xtol to arrive.

Base exposure 1 sec
Bellows factor 2.3
Reciprocity correction 2.3 -> 10 sec
"Scanned" with D800e in 4 overlapping quarters, processed in Adobe Bridge/ACR/Photoshop

Lens tilt 30 degrees. This is a lot of tilt, accomplished by both tilting the whole camera and forward tilt of the lens board. I can only get 15 degrees of tilt by the lens board alone. Film plane tilted back to vertical. I thought I had correctly calculated for the plane of the beans in the cup and the beans lying on the table in front. But I missed the front group. Both should have been in the plane of sharp focus, but it was very hard to focus on the ground glass with this much lens tilt. In any case, the beans in the cup are sharp front to back. Without the tilt only a shallow band would be sharp.
