    It is interesting that these mistakes are actually the current assignment for an experimental camera class I am taking now. I will add some assignment images soon

    Here's a 2x exposure a few hours apart. Doesn't scan well and I haven't tried to print it yet. 135mm lens on both, I think.
    There's a real Jerry Uelsmann feel to that one. I like it!

    Here is one of my many mistakes. Uncoated Voltas 13" lens pointed into the sun with out a lens hood. Guess what happens?

    This is my worst image ever, and although it is a repeat image, it will not be my last...

    Haha, yeah...yeah. Been there. With smaller format, but same issue. The Apotar that I have, 105mm, was still on the folder it came on and I was shooting something...probably the inside of the garage trying to figure out of the darn camera worked or not. It worked, but the lens flared more than anything I've ever used.

    Works a treat on 4x5, though. A little falloff at the corners when not at, say, 1:2, but not enough to really worry about. Compur shutter is on. Good lens for the Speed Graphic.

    Dead Tree Near Utah Lake. Type 55 Polaroid - Obviously the chemicals did not disperse evenly and the focal plane is just behind the tree. Oops. Ironically this image has sold in a gallery and off my webset a couple times.
