Re: Recent Activity. - 8 new images

4x10 is my dream rig but the $$ is prohibitive for me at the moment (1 year old daughter who's mummy loves to spoil her :D )

I'd love 4x10 for colour and 7x17 for BW.. Reserve 6x17 for the super long hikes where every kg of kit counts... One day.. :D

Re: Recent Activity. - 8 new images

Andrew - When this forum resided on another server in its first days, we did discuss LF/MF and everyone agreed, we are too small a community to go cutting images and possibly loosing a wealth of knowledge in MF shooters... At the end of the day, the passion here is LF. That said, the only difference...

Re: Recent Activity. - 8 new images

Nope - 6x17cm medium format. Last time the question was asked here, MF is allowed as a lot of the knowledge and skills required to master MF applies to LF. I do also shoot LF.. My landscapes almost always get done on 6x17 as it is just how I see things... Also, I would put to anyone that being 'Larg...

Re: Recent Activity. - 8 new images

as a result of these tests with ektar, I have just bought 50 rolls, and halved my usual order of velvia 50 from 100 to 50. I still plan on shooting velvia quite a bit, but I will pick and choose the situations where it will work best, and use Ektar in situations where the contrast is too harsh for s...

Here is a bunch of what I've been doing recently. BW's are all on Acros 100. Colour work is a Mix of Velvia 50 and Ektar 100 (These are my first rolls of Ektar ever shot, and my first go at C41 processing). "Vortex" - Ektar 100 https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/740438_...

Sensational Maris.

Would love to catch up with you some time to see some of these in person. They must be marvelous in the flesh if they portray this well on a website.

Re: Building an 8x10.

Looking great Lachlan. I've been considering building an 8x10 box camera for taking portraits of my kid(s) as they grow up... I essentially want to build two half boxes with an 8x10 back on one, and a lens board on the other. It would be fairly crude, but it doesn't need all the niceties of a field ...

Re: New member

Welcome Ray. Great image of your son Jackson, Amazingly high quality... I recently built my first 4x5 camera that was basically a pine box with a 90mm F/8 Super Angulon on the front and a graflock back on the rear... I took some amazing images with something so simple and modest.. It cost a total of...

Re: Snow Gums, April, Infrared.

Beautiful image Maris..

This is the sort of tonality and texture that drew me to LF in the beginning...

Outstanding. I would love to see it printed large.

What special measures do you have to take when loading and unloading Efke IR820? I have been keen on getting some and doing some IR work.
