    March 2016 Portraits

    Here are a few from me to start the month. When I'm bored I take selfies. This is (I think) the 300mm Universal Heliar lit with my new fresnel on 4x5.



    and here is a dusty scan of an already varnished half-plate, shot on the Dallmeyer 3b, wide open I think.

    Here are some Indonesian girls cooking sate on my barbecue. This was shot in 8x10 on the Dallmeyer 3b stopped down to f/16. But the 3b doesn't cover 8x10 (doh!), so I eliminated the vignette by printing in cyanotype. This is actually the worst print I made, but my wife gave away the others before I had a chance to scan.



    Finally, here is a little portrait of my little grandniece Emily, who lives high in the mountains in Tembagapura, Papua, Indonesia. This was shot on 4x5, and I must say it is very difficult to get focus, then ensure a toddler doesn't wiggle before the film is inserted and shot taken. Still, this is my favorite out of focus shot I've ever made, and the first time I've seen "out-of-focus" as perhaps a useful method of soft-focus.

    Very nicely done!! Antoine is a handsome model!!! Did you focus on his nose?

    Cheers,

    I was shooting some old (and I mean OLD) Type 79 a couple of weeks ago. Technikardin 45; Xenotar 150 F2.8, wide open, of course.

    Thanks for the nice words! The focus on the nose wasn't on purpose - the subject moved a bit before the exposure.

    Not your typical LF Portrait this looks very casual and natural more like a Portrait done with a 35mm camera in the course of a reportage or family outing. Very nice.
