    Probably not the portrait purist's ideal, yet it there is something engaging here, very creative. Never seen a Leitz Hektor used on a LF camera, did it take much to fit it and get it to cover the 4x5?

    thanks guys.

    I decided to play a bit with high contrast lighting and "character" portraits. D loves reading, and that book is actually HUGE - album of DaVinci's work, i got it some time ago
    Next one will be posted in November thread , i guess - got some really cool ones of my father-in-law, just need to process film.

    I call this a narritive portrait. It tells a story. We have 'male gaze by plastic man'. Wondering human, grasping her inner plastic person showing joy at the attention.

    Well done!

    It covers infinity with a little vignette, no vignetting at closer distances. It was quite ease to mount on a diy wooden lensboard. It is possible ti remove the vignetting by trimming the end of the lens barrel.

    Horror Nun by Don Kittle, on Flickr

    There was a few zombie walks that took place on Saturday, October 29th here in Toronto. I opted to hit the St Clair zombie walk that stretched from Bathurst to Lansdowne Ave. I caught up with the dead at Earlscourt Park, set up and shot 18 portraits over the course of about 35 minutes.

    Camera: Wista Deardorff V8
    Lens: Kodak Fujinon W 300mm f/5.6
    Film: Film: Ilford Multigrade IV RC Paper, preflashed
    Exposure: ISO 6, f5.6, 1/60 second, metered at 1/12, lit with Elinchrom Ranger Quadra in deep octa (no diffusers)
    Movements: 1/2 front fall
