some months ago I bought a russion industar 300mm lens, I have now built a half plate portriat camera around it, the lens has a f64 stop and there is no shutter only a lens cap.
but I'm using paper negs, which I rate at asa4..
so average exposure time is around 2 secs

Mark, here's some of the first images I took, both are on paper negs, at f64 developed in a red safe light, till the detail looked right
