    Re: The Setup and the Shot

    Here's the setup for a recent shot. My tripod was as low as possible and I had to dig the center column into the sand a bit. I composed while kneeling in the wet sand as the tide was creeping up behind me. I got quite dirty.

    Camera is a Mercury 4x5 equipped with a 47mm XL. Focused using a helical set at about 5 feet and stopped to f/22.



    And the result:

    Lachlan, I love this photo. I have a soft spot in my heart for pano shots.

    Re: The Setup and the Shot

    A self-assignment, this was made to remind some friends that volume two of a manual on tuning and registration, this for orchestral instruments, still awaits their attention. (The first is the little joke in the bottom right corner.) While I see all sorts of weaknesses in the composition, I had already spent more hours on it than it's purpose justified, so it is what it is.

    This might belong in the images of mistakes thread. I was taking this the other evening, and in the midst of taking the second sheet I realized I hadn't corrected for reciprocity failure. At that point it was really getting dark. I kept the lens open about 22 minutes, but stopped when it just seemed there was no more light to add, and I was afraid I wouldn't see enough to pack up my gear. It's about a stop underexposed, so I should have gone for another 22 minutes! This is 8x10 X-ray developed in Pyrocat HD.

    If a very interesting composition. You might try selenium intensification. That might take about 23 minutes altogether (not including drying), but may help you toward the printing densities you want.

    Thanks, that's an interesting idea. I've never done it before, but this might be a good negative to experiment with, although I don't really want more contrast. I might try printing with this as is, then perhaps try the selenium intensification, and see what happens. Thanks again.

    Print it. The image is very nice and the contrast is very close.

    Corran,

    if you didn't move the camera and tripod ... to me, it really is a prime example of wide angle "distortion" of the near/far relationships when looking at the setup photo. I also wonder - maybe that is my eyes - but it feels like the horisontal is a bit askew? No matter, I really enjoy your photo and you seem to get along well with a wide view of the world.
