portraits are something a bit new for me, here's one from this weekend, Bausch & Lomb lens, and speedgraphic:
Lovely Mr. Buck
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep..to gain that which he cannot lose. Jim Elliot, 1949
Absolutely precious, Mr Buck.
Wealth is a state of mind.
Money is just a tool.
Happiness is pedaling +25mph on a smooth road.

Really sweet !!!
Daniel, what kind of lens is this ?
Do you picture hand-held ?
PS here is one from youngest granchild (speed+Gottingam)
Miguel, it's some sort of projector lens that I got from Jim, I believe he said it was based off of a Petzval design. No, I didn't do this one hand held, I plopped the camera on some legs. The range finder focusing doesn't link up with this lens (though I might be able to adjust that?). Very cute shot of your granchild
Thanks Ed and Jan. I am happy that you enjoyed the image.
my black and white photos of the Mendocino Coast: www.jonshiu.com
betax 300mm 4.5 testshots,
arranged an afternoon full of people,
4 filmholders and the iron will to
master this lens/camera combination,
I love and hate 8*10,
it its good, its exceptional,
if you make a mistake you're doomed,
no free lunch here, and group portraits
are fun to focus
