    kale

    Continuing my lockdown project idea of shooting simply vegetables from the kitchen I took a couple of shots of a nice kale cabbage. The texture of the kale leaves is just mind-blowing. Had few Ilford delta 100 sheets from a friend so I have decided to use them thinking about the incredible detail and tonality this film is capable of rendering. There's nothing special about this photograph but only an exercise and opportunity to practice with my new LF toy, in the same time feeding my obsession for textures and shapes.
    Wista 45N; Fujinon 210mm; Ilford delta 100; Rodinal 1+50 for 14mins.

    thanks for appreciation mate. I haven't seen the movie, horror is not exactly my cup of tea, but I might give it a try now as you mention it

    Your Kale is nice. Now - can you do some of CAEL - Cael Sanderson. The current Penn State wrestling coach who has them winning 8 NCAA titles in 10 seasons, Won Olympic Gold and went 159-0 at Iowa State University with 4 NCAA titles and 4 Outstanding wrestling awards. A good Large Format portrait of him would be nice - Pt/Pd even better.

    Nice shot. Could be titled “Feed me, Seymour!” I have also been shooting simple items around the house. A great exercise and it amazing just how many everyday things make great subjects.

    Too far from Pennsylvania to do it.
