Now, THIS is a masterful fashion portrait! Love how the transition from the dark drape to the lighter background exactly mirrors the lighting on the face. Have you been aware of this when you took the image? Irving Penn couldn't have done this better.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate your generous comment. Yes the position of the drape in the middele of her head was intentional and you can see it also in aother picture of the same series. This is the one i prefear. Also the fan create that contast and the dress too.

Some former neighbors graced us with a visit today, prior to leaving the state for a new life in the Pacific Northwest. I took the liberty of making a portrait, and presenting them a print, again using the Instant Box Camera.

The paper negative was once again Arista grade 2 RC paper, f/8 at 1/4 second, ISO12; while the print was Ilford MG RC WT Luster paper, exposure f/8 for 8 seconds, grade 3.5 printing filter over the lens, rated at ISO 1.6. I continue to use incident metering +1 stop for the negative, and a reflected meter reading off a gray card for the print.

I noticed the cut off toes but didn't really obsess over it. I think it's more unfortunate that, on my monitor at least, the gentleman's legs kind of vanish into the shadows of the lower right corner of his photo. Otherwise that photo works very well as an environmental portrait.

6-May-2015, 15:54
Yes you are right. But i was again so silly that i used expired film, never used before, for a series of photos that for the kind of subject i can define important. I was sure about that film that i get used for free from another photographer. In my opinion that film was a little damaged by the age. I have other two sheet to develop and i hope they are better than this.

http://largesense.com/files/7314/3141/0419/150511_ZoieUnderTreeBigPetzval_2_1024.jpg

I was trying out the big Petzval. It is such a bright lens that I needed to wait till after sunset in the shade to take photos. It is too big for my regular ND filter, so I'll need to get a bigger ND filter. It doesn't quite cover 9x11 inch. My Flat-field correction made the corners bright where they would be typically be darkened. Added sepia and contrast.

The lens used:

Another Thompson user, eh? :) I got even bigger one, and its a bit less dreamy when you orient rear element right, but it still very cool pictorial-ish lens. Nice portrait anyway :) And i am totally looking forward to see what whole project with LS911 would come to be. Love color examples too.

Thanks. I got the Thompsons as they were cheaper, other lenses like this cost a lot more. A bigger lens would be nice but mounting would be an issue. I hope to take some outdoor color samples later.

Sheldon... what film and filter? Your really separated the subject from her surroundings.

I didn't use any filters, just shot wide open with the Fujinon-L 300mm f/5.6 lens. Film was Arista Ultra EDU 100 processed in Rodinal 1:50 in a rotary drum for 7 1/2 minutes. Exposure was 1/15 at f/5.6. I used an Elinchrom Ranger with a 53" Octa camera right, ambient was underexposed by about 1 stop and the rest of the light is from the strobe.

I just shot 65+ sheets of Portra 160 and (some) Provia 100F for my Transformations:Cosplay project these two days, and probably will shoot another 6-8 tomorrow. Not sure how long it will take me to process ALL THESE FILM, let alone posting them in this thread :-)

Then hopefully I will spend an afternoon photographing the lovely Charleston SC with my small Hasselblad 203FE and SWC/M :-)

My friend Mary just graduated from medical school, and starts her pediatrics residency next month. She was fascinated with the wet plate process, we shot several serious and funny photos, this was my favorite. Wish I didn't have the stain above her head, and white line near her face. Full plate.

Working on larger plates, a 10x12-inch tintype of a former student. Sort of a "Collodion Noir" (as opposed to "Film Noir") look, an anachronism I don't know if I can really get away with... :rolleyes: With a 19.5-inch Velostigmat Series II. I had the fuzzulator set to sharp, and I was surprised how crisp the old Tessar could be wide open at f/4.5.

Those are very cool.

When I shoot portraits I tell people early and often that they can't bob around because their margin of movement is about 1/4 inch. I say it repeatedly while focusing, then tell them I'm focused and they can't move, and I give them something to lean against, behind, or in front, or a chair back. Still, they always move. Next, I'm making a headrest!

This is beautiful. The sharpness and texture of the model and the out of focus trees and landscape.
Is this the Cooke ps945 lens?
Is there a light leak over the model and to the left? The film holder?
The point of view is right but I think you should crop away the wall on the left side for better concentration and infinity.
Best regards Göran

PS I may be wrong about the cropping. DS

Hi Goran, yes, the PS945. It definitely has a signature. I think sometimes I overuse it and for full body portraits like this may be I should use a regular Plasmat more. When it works though, it does have a very appealing look.

The lighting is very bright, basically, this is the hotel entrance overhang, at high noon and I think the left hand side is just very bright and not a light leak. I took 60 sheets of Portra 160 but used them up by then already! So I had to use the Provia 100 as backup, which has more limited dynamic range. I could save more of the highlights if I used Portra.

Thanks

I like this a lot. What kept be me looking at this was the question of who is the subject.

Is it the scowling baby--"why are we stopping? Who is that behind me? I can't wait until I can drive."
