    Re: April 2012 Portraits

    Sometimes the only model available is oneself. Taken yesterday in all my post-winter glory: weight gain, grizzly beard and hair that won't lie down. My wife operated the dark slide "Galli" shutter. Three second exposure. Shooting into the light without a hood so there was lots of flare.

    Kodak 2D 8x10, 10" A.T. Thompson magic lantern Petzval, Kodak Low Contrast Aerial Duplicating Film (expired 1984) cut to 6.5" x 9", exposed at EI 1.5.

    Awesome portrait. He has that look as though he's about to say, "Get off my lawn!"

    Harley - there is one weird streak as i notice now of "non foggy" background on left now.. I need to look at the negative again and rescan it.
    Foggy effect is there from all the aberrations collected by Fujinon.. It was pretty clear by that time (there was fog earlier in morning, when i was shooting landscape, waiting for girl to arrive at designated spot ). ( could be that i goofed up and left "restore fading" in vuescan so it decided to suppress that effect).

    I basically used what i learned with my 180 VSF on Mamiya - all these soft lenses with holes seems to behave more interesting while overexposed, so i think whole foggy stuff came from bluebonnet heads being a bit too bright and it was increased by usual dreaminess of velvia. But that streak now will bug me

    OT: Roman... Is that a Baikal MP153 shotgun?

    Great portraits guys! I thought Velvia wasn't good for skintones but apparently it works fine here

    rpalm, Sergei,

    Thanks. I'm not happy with the way I look these days, but I can't let that stop me. Nothing a good pair of clippers and a diet won't fix! The "pose" was simply me finding a place where I could keep my head still for three seconds. In this case, the back porch railing.
