View Full Version : Hello!

Hi! I'm Phillip, I live in Brooklyn. I recently purchased a new (to me) Deardorff V8 after working with 4x5 in college. I've been stalking these forums for a while, but figured that since I've actually shot something maybe I should introduce myself and say hi. Anyway, here they are, three portraits with the new camera. Looking forward to any insight people have on working in large format!

Welcome to LF forum. Looks like you have things under control.

I really believe that portraits shines more with 8x10 format, but is it is 8x10?

Judging by the rebate:image ratio, they are indeed 8x10's. And beautiful ones at that!

They are indeed! Ilford HP5. The lab under developed them a bit, but still useable. Seem to have a light leak in one of my holders however. Thank you!

It is making hard to me now to forget about 8x10, i didn't start or shoot much yet with 4x5, and now watching 8x10 it is really killing.

If i will buy 8x10 one day in the future, far future, i will only buy it for portraits, could be used for anything else, but i will really think to keep 8x10 for portraits only when possible.
