    Hi Glad you like it.
    I have always liked Tintype portraits, those interesting skin and eye tones are just beautiful. Currently I don't have the time to delve into that fascinating process so in trying to get something similar, but quicker and less wet, I used Ilford Ortho Plus. Being orthochromatic the film is not sensitive to red light and with Rupert, being a ruddy faced builder, the film has picked up the texture of his skin and freckles whilst lightening his blue eyes.
    The film was rated at 50ASA and then processed 1:3 in D76 as I didn't want it to have too much contrast. I scanned, then dodged and burned (probably a little too much) in Photoshop.

    Re: November Portrait Thread

    I have been a lurker here for years, but this is my first large format portrait post, although I've shot 4x5 and 5x7 portraits before. This one was done a couple of weeks ago with some Kodak Ektar I needed to get rid of (expired), shot with a Nikon 210mm f5.6 @f8 on my Linhof IV. My wife isn't happy with it, but she was patient and a good sport. Too much back tilt and a downward angle meant perspective problems I had to correct in PS. Camera was about 5 or 6 feet from subject; this is a 4x6 crop. Tips and critiques welcome. - Chad
