    You are now in the “Image Sharing (Everything Else) & Discussion” forum. Where smaller formats live.

    You’re not new around here are you? ;^)
    Excuse me, but I do not look in the sections of the forum, but have everything displayed in the "unified view".

    So, I'll give you the following task, because that's what brought me to the large format: take pictures with your analog 35mm SLR and bellows, extensions, macro lenses. And on color slide film. But please measure the exposure with an incident light meter like the Sekonic L398. Or with an external spot meter. Zackzack, nix TTL ...

    Here are a few smaller paper negatives, only in 9x12. Multigrade RC, about ISO 3. Paper negatives give you an immediate idea of whether you are right or wrong. This is really a big advantage of large format photography.

    Hey Daniel, clicking “Unified view” shows each thread’s forum location (look to the right), same as clicking on “New posts,” as addressed and remedied in my previous post. Like your shots! ;^)

    Nice!

    Here’s a butterfly I’ve managed to capture all the way to 1:1. Had to get very close for this life-size magnification. Kept the sun in his eyes so he couldn’t see me. Check out that long tongue, whoops, I mean proboscis:

    Why do you think I shoot analog? Do I look like I can handle all this digital stuff?

    Everything we see here on LFPF is digital

    I shot my Dead Bug very quickly this morning on iPad 5 mit zoom on tripod with 10 shot automatic stacking

    all editing done in camera, the black border added in PS

    Nobody has done a 'real' print exchange since my last 2, years ago

    I shoot up to 11X14 with TMax 400, Tri X 320 and Extascan, all too big for my scanner

    Please PM me with your questions and I promise I’ll get back – meantime I’m busy posting, plus hope to see more of your nice shots…

    This is wood from a White Bark Pine high in the mountains, fallen after an attack of the mountain pine beetle. This is a full-frame scan, so you can imagine how little this flame-like patch of wood actually is.

    Very rare

    Cosmo loved their fragrance as did I, so I brought them home often

    Never saw this color https://seedrack.com/indiv/strelitzi...QaAsHgEALw_wcB

    I forgot that flower...

    Thanks for a memory
