    Baco Head, 2022
    Bacos are my favorite heads. Wonderful image of this one.

    Thanks Jim. I agree, terrific heads; I used the Baco Junior with 4x5. This one was given to me by Brett Weston when I was eighteen and starting with the 8x10.

    There is a story: After photographing from his truck platform in Mexico during the 1950's, Brett drove off neglecting to stow the tripod. The Ries survived the fall fine, however the Baco was in three pieces. Brett found a skilled welder in the wilds of Mexico who put it back into one piece, ground it flat, and Brett was on his way again. After returning to California he purchased a new Baco and gave me this old one. It has been my companion for sixty-five years.

    5x7 PlusX 2402 Aero D23 5x7 Norma 500mm Tele Xenar by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Kodak Aerographic Five Inch Plus-X cut seven inches, to fit a 5x7 Lisco Holder. 5x7 Sinar Norma with my newly CLA'ed Schneider 500mm Tele Xenar at F22. Hasselblad 40mm Distagon Yellow Filter jammed inside the lenshood, it fits! D23 1:1 8x10 Unidrum on Uniroller. 5x7 Contact Print on Arista #2 RC Dektol 1:2 The Tele-Xenar is quite sharp up front as you can see. I'm liking this film for 5x7, but I can also cut it to 4x5 or even 9x12cm. Like the tonality you get with the Aerial emulsion. Thirty five cents a shot for beautiful 5x7; I just got a 350 foot roll

    Tim Kelly Inspired portrait lighting; Broncolor Balloon 90 degrees left, lighting the entire set. Main light Broncolor C171 Monolight Pulsoflex Softbox, one stop brighter than the fill, 45 left to the set. Just out of camera shot 45 right, is a foamcore freestanding panel for passive fill. Finally, the creme on the sundae, is Broncolor C70 Monolight with Snoot and Handmade Grid cut from an olde Broncolor Honeycomb. Selectively lighting a small portion of the background. Just because I want to

    Thanks Ben!

    Here's the negative. I have two more sheets to develop, going to try HC-110 "H", as I found that in some olde LFF archives, as working well with the 2402 Aero. Mucho fun ahead

    Two tea kettles, on 8x10 (long expired and poorly stored) Fomapan 200. Shot with the Kodak 405 Portrait lens I'm pretty sure wide open, at most f/6.3, more likely f/5.6. Since the negatives were in poor condition to begin with, I took an Xacto knife to one side and a sharpie to the other. This was the very first experiment in the concept.
