    Post Yer Still Lifes take 2

    Had to share this as I am jazzed about this lens! A Jim Galli special 5" B&L Cinephor odified Petzval... F2.5 and Packard mounted on the front and placed into a home made lensboard on my Chamonix 45-1N.... I took this on Tuesday afternoon and printed it last night....

    The print is on FOMA MG '131' emulsion souped in Agfa Neutol WA. Lightly bleached back, lightly sepia toned and finished in selenium.

    As the coverage of this is not full 4x5, I cropped it square and seems to be perfect for that format. At anyrate, the OOF areas are wonderful when shooting close focused subjects and not as crazy as when foliage is in the frame where it swirls violently! Thanks Jim for this great lens.

    This was actually a test for Sironar-N 135mm bought exclusively for Chamonix 45N-1.

    A bug wanted be in the photo, it landed on the cap of Rodinal just after I have measured exposure and before released shutter and left when I pull out the film holder.

    I'll confess I sometimes wonder if these lenses will get used or not. This is a wonderful example of exactly what it can do. Great!

    145mm f2 petzval projection lens, speedgraphic 4x5.

    I put some rise on the lens to move the center sharp area down towards the shoe, which is why it's vignetting only on the top.
