    Re: post "in Galli style"

    I have the greatest respect for Jim Galli, and enjoy much of his conventional work, but, (except in "Camera Club Competitions"), there was good reason that this pretentious genre of photography had finally died out before WW2. It's sorta like "fisheye" photographs -- seen one, you've seen them all (over and over and over...).

    That can be said for ANY type of photography... Everything has been done before.. It's all in the eye of the beholder, and whatever floats ya boat. People do this because they like to. Why do you feel it pretentious?

    Myself, I am one of those retro sharp focus, total depth of field landscape guys and I don't see that changing. But I think Jim should be commended for resurrecting this vintage technique and style. It is a nice contrast to the Adams/Muench juggernaut that dominates this forum and all of LF. It is clear that a number of people here sincerely enjoy Jim's way of working and in the final analysis isn't that most important?
    Thanks,

    Let's get this thread back on track...
    Jim gave me the heads up on this lens so it's kind of like I got it from him.

    B&L projection lens (10" I think)
    FP4 (5x7) & Rollo Pyro
    Ilford Warmtone paper & Dektol

    Guilty! I bought a small petzval from Jim earlier this year and have yet to shoot with it. Weather permitting I'll be doing some shooting on Friday, so maybe I'll have something to post in a week or so.

    Agreed. I actually have always liked the older style photography (thin DOF on full length portraits, and odd effects that older lenses can give, which is one of the reasons I got into large format shooting!) but I actually never new what style of lens gave that effect until I started seeing Jim's postings I just knew it was something with large format. I know some people don't like the style, but that's fine. i don't particularly like 'street' photography, or some other types of photography styles, but I don't shun those who participate in those types of photography, nobody is forcing me to participate

    Well I must admit it's not using a primitive lens but it is selective focus.

    This is an 8x10 shot with one of my Petzvals. Can't remember which one. Now that has me upset! Printed on some old Azo stock I have.

    Not sure this is in true "Galli style" but it was shot wide open (f3.8) with an old 6 inch Dallmeyer portrait lens mounted on a Speed Graphic. I took it last week at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia.
