One from my first portrait shoot with the AeroEktar on a Speed Graphic.

I guess I wish the dog was looking, but I hate shooting animals.

I hear that. I did animal portraits as part of my studio offerings. Dogs weren't that bad but cats seem to sense when the shutter is being pressed, resulting in shots of nothing but the tail. All in all, a very pleasing shot, Ootsk.

Very nice portrait of a beautiful woman and she is clever she doesn't where a bra! Bra's can cause breast cancer, because of cutting the blood cyrculation!!!!

Stephane - do we have to guess what this was taken with?

Stephane
6-Jun-2017, 06:57
You guessed right Steven.

It is between petzvals (Ross cabinet or a Hermagis portrait) and a Plasticca in normal configuration. Both types have a sharp center and narrow DOF, so I cannot be sure.

IMO It is easier to identify soft focus lens signatures, that is if I am the one snapping the photos...

I got the opportunity to get a press pass for the Living History day at a local open air museum, and spent the day shooting portraits with my rather bulky monorail. I think many of the people there thought I was part of the exhibition, and I had to field a LOT of questions from other photographers there, but it was fun. The big advantage was that it's much easier to get people to pose for you if you are the only guy there without a DSLR.

I have a lot more shots to post!

These guys are all part of a re-enactment group called the ragged Victorians, fun to shoot but they don't break character so photographing the prostitutes was a bit of an ordeal, "Ooh you've got a big one sir! Would you like to have us both together?"

Here is a portrait I took of the Bullock's and their fantastic house here in Tasmania, made it as thanks for letting me onto their property to shoot a 130 year old mulberry tree.

Some of you who are into historical photography may be interested to read my blog post. Complete coincidence... I knocked on their door yesterday to ask if I could take a photo of their mullberry tree. They introduced themselves and turns out John has a fantastic collection of ambrotypes, tintypes and albument prints, CDV cards and whatnot of such people as Doc Holliday's wedding portraits (how they got here in Tasmania is anyone's guess... I cover that in my blog) and also a family tintype photo album of Ulysses S Grant!

Check out my blog post if you're interested. (https://ambrotrocities.wordpress.com/2017/06/15/serendipity/) Pretty amazing stuff.

So Amanda seems convinced that her left side is her "better" side, but she doesn't seem to realize I love *all* of her many sides.

This is my first go with the big camera in a year or two and even longer for doing my own devleoping, and I like how it came out.

Technical Nerdery: Window light with reflector fill. Wista 4x5, Nikkor 210mm @5.6, slight tilt to the side to keep both eyes sharp wide open, HP5+ film rated at 400 developed in DD-X 4+1. Scanned on my new Epson V800. Just spot correction and some faint dodging and burning in post.

evanbaines, Beautifully done. It is a very painterly classical approach, simple, elegant, very nice use of pose, space and framing as a unit conception. A fine way indeed to return to the large negative. I must add, that I look forward to using the smae sort of set-up as soon as I get back to m y camera -- 4x5, 210mm, HP5+, natural lighting. Delighted to see your work.

Thank you so much that's kind of you to say! We have a few lovely north-facing windows, although the space is actually quite cramped... I want to get back to doing some of my military portraits with the big camera but I may have to resort to studio lighting if I can't find a comparable spot with a little more room.

Cheers!

This is my first time sharing an image, though I've been following this forum for some time. This is one I shot some time ago, but just now figured out how to scan both halves of the negative with my Epson V600, then combine them with photomerge in Photoshop.
Adjusted slightly in Lightroom.

Driver 18, Crown Graphic, Caltar II-E 210/6.8 lens, TMax 100 developed in Tmax developer.
