    This was taken in a remote section of NW New Jersey in an area famous for rare wildflowers which require a limestone (basic PH) environment. Fringed Gentians were found in season there, but due to wind, I did not have success taking them with the view camera. In those days I used a measuring tape to calculate exposure for closeups, with of course some degree of bracketing, provided you had enough film. What a luxury digital is in comparison.

    E100S 4x5 film, 150MM W Nikkor.

    Great study! If I may ask, what did you use as a background when you were making the photo?
    Website of sorts, as well as flickr thing.

    I clamped the leaf between two sheets of glass. The leaf was curved and this way I was able to get sharpness across the entire field. I also got rid of the need to mount the leaf with tape or with something also. I put a black sheet of paper on the background at some distance. Yes, I had reflections from the glass on the negative, but I managed to get rid of it printing with masks.
