    Nice one. It is hard to find form from chaos as you know.

    There used to be a guy on the forums who sometimes used the name Tim Atherton. He once described it as taking a picture of a tree that’s behind another tree, that’s behind a bush.

    Ha, thanks Bryan--I'm starting to think the whole "plane-of-focus" concept is just another species of Yankee propaganda. Otherwise, that's a great quote! I know of another photographer who described shooting in the Eastern Woodlands like doing interior architecture work: definitely have to up my wide angle/movement game.

    This oak is close to my summer house on the west coast of Sweden.
    We call it the "chained oak" since it's got som human help to survive

    Intrepid 4x5 mark IV & Fomapan 400. Can't remember the lens but probably a Symmar 135/5.6

    I'm liking this as well--great light! As someone whose tastes run toward the abstract
    I'm even seeing some nice crops as well--a square on the right side, and even a chopped 1:2 tight against the lower right corner.

    I've been wanting to return and take this 5x8" (masked 8x10) to achieve a comp similar to your 1:2 suggestion. But it's been just too hot to even think about it. Faffing around with the 8x10 in that heat would be unbearable!

    I'm working on a project of 5x8" contact prints - so cropping the 4x5 wouldn't cut it, I need to go back...

    Excellent, I'll be very interested in what you find about the relationship between scale and subject matter. I'll hopefully be making my first 5x7 contact prints in the upcoming months and am wondering how my extremely detailed/fractal scenes will translate. It's also on my mind to try to contact print those negs on 8x10 paper using a lith tape mask--you're really making the case for large white borders here.

    At any rate, a captivating Flickr stream as well--you've accumulated more frequent flier miles than I have at the very least!

    I'm actually masking to expose 2 x 5x8" on a single 8x10" sheet. Just developed my first sheet and I double exposed (more mental focus needed when shooting!), the second sheet was ok, 2 exposures nicely on a single sheet. I think I've figured out a system for remembering which half is already exposed, but the process is fraught with peril.
