My friend Dominick, messing around since he had shot up all his film and I had one more sheet in the Grafmatic. Kind of mimicking Feininger's famous self-portrait, with a Holga, and in "vertical" no less, which is kind of funny we thought!

A little while ago I posted an image in the small format forum from a "SlutWalk" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SlutWalk). I had shot some LF too but didn't develop it till last night.

Here is a portrait I shot that afternoon. Linhof MT, Voigtlander 15cm f/4.5 APO Lanthar, FP4+, Acufine, and cropped down a bit:

My brother Sévan visited for a few days, so he sat in from of my new and big PS& synthetic meniscus. Softest lens I ever tried, so I have to be better on exposures.

A couple of friends who visited me at at art show I have on right now. I was demoing large format cameras (a bit non-sense since I'm so new to it) and loaded up some HP5+ to shoot friends as they came by. Happy with the look of the shot but the developing left a bit to be desired - there are lots of strange patterns on the negative, presumably from the development. I hand rolled this in a Jobo Expert tank and expected much more even development.. Perhaps it's flare from the Ektar?

Oh, the people background were unfortunate - there was a big birthday party for a 3 year old going on..

Great photos everyone! I'm so envious looking at these portraits and I really want to venture more into LF portraits this year.

Here's my first try.

Is that bounce flash, or just the shop's own lighting? I like the light, and it looks a lot like bounce.

Thank you everyone for your supportive words.

mdarnton: No flash used, just the shop's own lightning and the window letting in some "fill".

Andrew: It's a very small room so I was kind of forced, but I like how the environment is part of the picture with the 90mm.

A very nice image, and as you say, quite untraditional! I'm surprised by a depth of field so deep with an aperture wide enough to preserve the softness. Must be the short focal length...

Thanks! The 7.25" is a bit short for normal soft focus use. The other side of the coin for spherical aberration is bigger focus range from the different parts of the glass focusing differently. I usually use this half way between f4 and 5.6 (and didn't change it for this). I'd need longer focal length (and possibly bigger film and camera) for thinner DOF.

I'm sure that's a big part of it too. Spherical aberration was originally used to spread depth of field, not soften the image, but on the big Veritos, the DoF is so shallow it doesn't do much to compensate. Nice to see a little one at work!

Portrait on 5x7. Using FP4+. I did not realize how long I have had that box of unopened film...it still had the interweaving papers between each sheet! Quite a bit of (even) base fog that I can easily print through.

Image taken last week, printed yesterday with palladium (w/ Na2) on COT 320. Scan from the print.

That's nice Sergei, did you use the lens in its convertible setup? That has a nice 'soft-sharpness' to it.

Oops wrong thread. Meant to post this in May thread.

The image was taken on the trawl deck, which is the rear part of the ship where we shoot the fishing gear from. above him is a helideck so no light coming from above, the light is natural light coming from directly behind the camera, mostly reflected off ice in the water.
