    Re: post your trees!

    Jim K, thanks a lot.

    Photographing inside a forest is a new challenge for me now - so far I have only rarely shot inside a forest where the forest itself would be the subject. I think I'll have to explore that more.

    Here is another one from the same outing:



    Ferns

    Chamonix 58″, Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 210mm, 1318cm, Fomapan 100, Rodinal.

    Nice ferns Jiri. I've been walking in woods and forests a lot recently and have found it a real challenge to turn out images that satisfy me. One simple problem is that it's often so dark under cover of the foliage that exposures need to be too long to freeze the waving ferns and foliage. The other challenge is literally to 'see the wood from the trees'. I know these are problems for any photographer anywhere but to me they are heightened inside woodland. So it's all the more satisfying to find an image that works.

    This is very nice indeed, but then again I am attracted to abstract images.

    If I may, I have been wanting to ask you a question for some time now. I also have seen your images on APUG as well as here on this forum.

    Since you are posting on this forum, I have to assume this image was captured with a large format camera. (Or are you just using LF sized film?) Given the nature of your "fuzzy/out of focus" images, why would you go to the extra expense to capture your images with LF? It seems to me there is no advantage over a capture with 35mm or even medium format if the images won't be sharp anyway?

    I'm sure there is a good answer, but I was just wondering?

    Rick

    Re: post your trees!

    hi nick

    thanks for looking, and for your comment!
    to answer your questions ...
    the cameras i have been using ( for here ) are a 4x5 box camera
    and a graflex slr ( 4x5 and with a roll of 120 taped to the back).

    i do some of the same thing with 135 film ( and some of those images are on apug ),
    the image quality just doesn't look the same. maybe it is because the non lf cameras
    i have/use newer lenses ( 50s, 60s and 80s ) ... not to say there is something magical about non coated junk lenses.
    they just render light differently, and i kind of like that.
    ... i don't really shoot lf for sharpness,i know some do, but i am not really concerned with that ( i kind of find it boring ) .

    i use a lf camera cause it is just more fun ...
    it really isn't an added expense for me. i have the film on hand so i use it ...

    not sure if my answers made any sense ..
