    Frustration probably born of trying to achieve 2:1 macros on 8x10 with a 300mm lens and no geared camera base-plate! I now have a detailed chart of working distances and bellows extensions for different lenses and subject sizes. I'll very likely try my Nikkor-W 210 for these in future. Nevertheless, have now got 4 sheets exposed on similar subjects. Only one so far is out of focus - not sure why I even clicked the shutter for that one!

    Also worth saying that Chamonix extension board, which I used for first time, is excellent. Technically Chamonix bellows on 8x10 only go out to 850mm, but with the Nikkor 300 I estimated the total extension to be 900mm, for 2:1. magnification. The neg is pretty cool!

    Many thanks! Correct. Little space in my kitchen, though, to be unveiling 3 feet of bellows!!

    Great picture indeed, but is this really LF or should it be in the MF section?

    I do shoot 4x5 and 9x12cm film in the camera fairly frequently. Perhaps this one should be moved.

    Seeing as we're a bit restricted at the moment:

    Both of these are natural light, about 1.5 times lifesize, using an old 90mm @ F32 on my Croma - the film is from my last few sheets of Adox 50ASA developed in 1:50 Rodinal. Somewhat underexposed; I got the bellows extension sums a bit wrong...

    Another Clematis macro from me.



    25th April 2020 3:15pm

    Chamonix 810V
    Nikkor-W 300 f/5.6
    Ilford FP4+ 8x10
    760mm bellows extension, with extension board
    (Working distance 550mm)
    1min 20 seconds f/16

    Cropped to 5x7 for composition
    Medium-low opacity Cobalt/iron gradient map in Photoshop
    Dev as before

    As I said before, these are tricky to do with a 300mm lens on 8x10. Setting up to get working distance, bellows extension, and total distance from subject right are all difficult!
