    Corran, what did you mean by misalignment in the original post?

    Re: Large Format Macro Images

    Well, my first shot I stood the coin straight up and shot directly at it. Visually, I thought the coin face was parallel to the lens plane. Even at f/16, the left side was so slightly further back than the right that the left third of the coin was out of focus.

    The second shot I put the coin on a small stand on the ground flat, and then shot straight down. I leveled the camera with the bubble level on my tripod and the levels on the camera. I also closed down to f/22 to get a bit more DOF. I don't know if it was the increased DOF or just better alignment, but this time I got all the coin in focus.

    Of course I also triple checked that I did not have any tilt/swing on the camera too!

    Thanks Corran, I thought you meant with the camera but also thought that it was an enlarger issue.
    It's good to hear about others' technique.

    Heroique pointed out that this thread has been dormant for ten years; I thought I'd bump it with an image from a "boredom session" last year. This is a strawberry blossom shot on TriX with a 50mm Beseler enlarging lens in my Toyo rail camera. Bellows correction was 4 stops for f8 and lighting was from Speedotron spots at 600WS.

    Iga, Very interesting - what is it? What was the magnification factor? You're setting a new standard, I think.
