Now there's a man with a story to tell. Can ask for a better portrait than feeling that when you see your work. Great work. Would look great in platinum--admittedly I'm bias��

Nice work, Mark. Great focus; what speed is the lens?

Stephane,

Usually, I won't comment much here but your portrait of Stig blew me away! Excellent work, very intense and unusual. I would tone it a tad bit more moderately if I ever shot a portrait nearly as good.

Thanks Barry!
The lens is a giant Hermagis 300mm f/2.4 projection lens. Being projection, there is no waterhouse stop slot, so I cut out a heavy paper f/10 aperture and just stuck it in front of the front lens - seemed to work!

Bennehboy: Your first three remind me a lot of the work of Rineke Dijkstra. If you are not familiar with her work, give it a quick look via Google or many books about contemporary photographers. And since her work hangs in many museums, the comparison is a complement.

Hi everybody, I have spent a lot of time staring at the beautiful portraits you guys are posting on this thread. So it's my first post here, as a beginner in large format, thank you for your indulgence.
This is my first attempt for a portrait (I've already did some few years ago with instant film)...with a rapid setup.

This is a lovely portrait, I would want to print this much different than what I am seeing on the screen . This would lith print like the bomb.
Or go deep deep deep and sepia.

I actually like this one better - she turned head a bit towards light, so its more flattering one.

28-Sep-2016, 05:46
I agree. I was trying so hard to focus on a small desk lamp shining tiny in her eye I didn't notice much else. I usually stop way down when using a sharp lens, but I was trying to match f stop and exposure between 2 formats, films and lenses. Thiis was 8x10 Delta 100 19" Artar/Ronar vs 11x14 X-Ray 14" Imagon. I worry she doesn't like the shots as she has not commented on them. She is very busy saving children. Really!

I have watched these portraits threads for years and been impressed and inspired. However I have only just been brave enough to dip my toe into LF portraiture. I haven't really got anything very special yet but at least I have made a start. So I would be grateful for critique and comment, I hope to improve from here.
