    This sings! Beautiful John. The price of Xenar's just went up!

    Thanks for the kind words. I have to say I was particularly pleased with this shot myself. Sometimes it works out better than you expect!

    Luke--the lens was a Kodak Aero Ektar shot wide open at f/2.5.

    [QUOTE=cjbroadbent;879935]I found another shot of Heidi. She is appealing me to get the shot over with. Her 'child' has been in tantrum mode and we don't have a backup.
    4x5 FP4 in a Cambo Twin. Just one large umbrella and a big black flag on the right.

    Magical and I am speechless! Thanks for posting!

    I just can't stop looking at this one. It's simply magic. If I wasn't so enamored by it I'd be extremeley jealous. Classic Rembrandt lighting and look. I can't fathom this being any better. It's true that subject pose had a bit of luck to it (the child). But... damn...

    And I think I'm falling in love with the lady.

    Hi, I'm curious about the camera. You say it is a Cambo twin lens 4x5. I didn't know Cambo offered a twin lens camera. Sounds very interesting. Beautiful image.

    Indeed very beautiful - her expression reminds me of the Mona Lisa, is she smiling or not...?
    But I'm not sure what you mean with 'black flag on the right'... is that on 'her' right to prevent spil on the background or on the right of the umbrella to counter flare?
