    This image is part of a series I did on desiccation. The rose had sat on my windowsill for about 3 months before making this image.
    4x5 shot onto Ilford FP4+ in HC-110, Fujinon 150mm, 11x14 print onto Ilford Multigrade.
    Great shot, Bill !

    Makiflex 180 F2.8 Zebra Sonnar FOMA by Nokton48, on Flickr

    The zebra 180mm F2.8 CZJ Sonnar (uber hacked rear mount completely removed, refitted into Plaubel Peco Jr recessed board). Makiflex Standard FOMA 200 Mic-X. Lens will just cover, 18"x18" area is as far out as it will focus. Amazing Sonnar bokeh. This lens is a fave for Pentacon Six fans, this is pushing the envelope with larger format

    I was attracted to the delicate lighting here

    Thanks Ben. This one was fun to do. I need to use this lens a bit more. I think this would work well for tight facial beauty shots. I even have a Softar II (for MF Contax) which I used with another one of these for beauty shots when photographing brides for money. That filter special ordered from B&H cost more than a lot of used MF lenses

    I like how this lens vaporizes the background It's a cheapo plentiful sleeper cult lens

    These tomatillos (still life with cabbage leaves) are not flowers...but they sure look like flowers! (5x7, 210mm, Pyrocat-HD, Multigrade Classic):

    Tulip Tree Blossom (Yellow Poplar)

    Wehman 8x10 UL, Voigtlander 21cm f/4.5 APO Lanthar, T-Max 400, Pyrocat



    Funny story about these flowers - I've never realized that they grew on yellow poplars. Every once in a while I'd find a pile of these blossoms in the forest, strewn about an area, but I never knew they were coming from the trees as I'd never seen them actually blooming. I think the weather here makes them not bloom often, because I was shocked to find a tree in my front yard chock full of blooms a couple days ago - and I know for a fact it's never done that before! So I looked it up and it was just a yellow poplar, which is a tree I thought I knew well for the distinctive leaves. Anyway, I snipped a bloom on a branch and made this photograph.

    Nicely done, Bryan, s well as an interesting story. The gentle tonality seems just right.

    Thanks! I might try another bloom with a black or dark grey background.

    Corran, I had one of those yellow poplar trees in my backyard and it bloomed every year. Maybe it just needs full sun. Squirrels used it to gain access to my roof and started nesting in the attic, so it had to come down.

    Amaryllis bloomed this spring was able to capture them with 8x10 Kodak Ektar and X-Ray Film, very different results.
