    July 2017 portrait thread

    Naomi at Alford Lake, Hope Maine. July 2017. 4x5 speed graphic preanniversary with 9" Gundlach Hyperion soft focus lens. Tmy2 tmax 400 film in pyrocat hdc.

    The light was nice. She was relaxed taking a break from swimming. I asked her to keep seated where she was (atop the picnic table) and I setup and shot two sheets.

    Astonishing portrait, congratulations Robert !

    May I show some of my recent works ?

    This young Fellow, Adrien, is a swiss friend nice enough to cross the border and to allow me to post his portraits here. I do thank him from the bottom of my heart for beeing a good friend and to care enough to undergo the torture of large format portraiture for my photographic sake.

    Yeps, I'm trying to tame my new Norma 5X7 but I do meet some problems to compose with this format and to make some good scans with my Epson flat bed scanner.

    On the other hand, I desperately need some feedbacks and advices from you nice viewers, so here we go !

    Large format photography is not only about size.

    Thanks Mark, Miguel, Ed!

    Laurent; your developing and scans look great!

    If you want feedback and advice.. I'd shoot that lens wide open. The background circles seem not circular which is caused by the shape of the aperture; shooting wide open prevents that issue.

    Rules are meant to be broken, but I'd also avoid the clothing with strong patterns of design if he had clothing options. The face texture looks fantastic, but I'm distracted by the shirt. A plainer shirt might keep the eyes going to the person. Sometime people like Jay DeFehr manage to keep the clothing and subject well balanced with regard to visual attention.

    Well done Laurent. I rather like the shirt and hat pattern, it is a little unexpected and for me creates some interest.

    Laurent, I think it is beautiful. The first image is more open and the light is very good on Adriens face. And the high lights and the background out of focus is very nice. It inspires me to try out the app ronar for portraits. And I really like the 5x7 format.

    Very good portraits, Laurent, both well composed in a beautiful light.
    Nuances, textures and rhythms make the success of these photos
