    LF and ULF portraiture

    I'm no John Cook or anywhere close, but I have been stumbling along trying to learn what the different antique lenses can produce. It's a passion but it's moving along at it's own pace. SLOW. But normally when I do a few LF portraits with some of the antique lenses I'll write a page and share a few of the shots. Below are some links to pages I've written about some of my progress so far.



    While I do have an 11X14 Century Portrait camera with a 22" Voigtlander Petzval lens, I've made exactly one portrait with it so far. It's a brute.

    Excuse my childishness, but I'm just giggling with pleasure here, looking at the luxious portraits you guys produce (Jim Galli's '40's Ford portraits made me gasp.) Bravo to all!

    I've always loved the shallow depth of field effect —typical in large format tight portraiture— which keeps the eyes sharp while throwing the ears slightly out of focus. Dreamy.

    Here is a portrait I made using a Wisner 12x20 camera, Schneider 355 G Claron lens, and Efke film in the artist's studio by available light.

    This is fun!
    I've just started using 8X10. Its a bit harder than 4X5 but I'm getting used to it. Here's a page where I plan to post the first twenty pictures I make on 8X10. Currently posted are the results of the first six sheets of film, two per subject. More to come.

    Here is how to send submissions to View Camera
    The first look is for content only. We will not reproduce from what you send us the first time. We do not need or want 50+mb files for an initial review. Keep the file size 10mb or less for our first look. Send up to 10 images of large format and ultra large format files to us at

    View Camera Magazine, Box 2328, Corrales, NM 87048

    If you are working in color or an alt process where there is color send the image in rgb. If you are working in black and white grayscale is fine.

    Thanks and looking forward

    Henry -- those are great images! Makes want to get my Kodak 2D out this weekend and try my luck. I'm impressed that you got the dog to sit still long enough for a shot. That in itself is impressive.

    Wow, this is some great stuff.
    It makes me want to give a shot at some portraits of my son.
    For 8X10, what are some basics. I like the shallow DOF.
    I heard focusing on the nose.
    What's a nice focal length and aperture to start with?
    If it's mainly a headshot, it doesn't seem like there would be a need for movements????
    Thanks
