    Thanks for the details Alex, was a joy to read and to poke around your blog some more too. (though I apologize for preferring the older historical photograph of the house over yours. ) I look forward to seeing what more you find on their property!

    Film: Ilford FP4+ @ ISO 64
    Exposure: 1/60 sec @ f5.6
    The -N series Rodenstock lenses are also very nice wide open. My only portrait, of my dad and his grandsons, was shot wide open with a 210mm Caltar II-N.

    Yes indeed! Fortunately he noticed before dropping it. These guys have a good time putting on gunfights at the Heritage village in the spring and fall.

    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.
