    first lf portraits

    I came to 4x5 through the 6x6. That's why I crop my latest works. I've tried 4x5 frames but couldnt get with it, so I made mask on my rear standard, and my F2 now shoots 4"x4" squares ;]



    experimental prints:
    Very short (really short=>20secs) rinse after fixing and bleaching during sepia toning caused funny streaks which made those shots look like they were really old.





    and here is 4x5 frame that I shot earlier, with no experiments


    all pics were taken with symmar s 300/5,6 and all of them were contact printed on expired in 1985 ORWO BN1 paper, and then toned with sepia and selenium toners.

    I really like all of these but the first one is especially powerful! The chocolatey sepia tones are really rich, which works well with these shots. The square format is cool, too!

    Oh my goodness. I can only wish that my first portraits will be that good. In fact, if i'm that good in a few years, i'll be very happy.
    Congratulations.

    Can i ask 2 newbie questions?
    To have that kind of blur, you tilted the lens but i was wondering wich way, and how much of an angle? My guess is a front standard forward tilt but i'm not sure (obviously i'm just starting)

    Did you use strobes for the lighting or a "constant" source of light? I do have strobes but i'm wondering how i could fire them during the exposure.
