Re: Blue Pool

Crickey Mick, it must have been a dark dark day down at Blue Pool to warrant such an extended exposure on FP4+. But it works: soft shadows, smooth sky, mirror water, and that crunchy gravel bank decorating the foreground. Even that rope hanging off the gum tree on the left is idle; no swing, drop, s...

Re: Window, Newstead Wharf.

I was too parsimonious to spring for the bag bellows. Less than $1000 but not by much. I got the Plaubel Profia 8x10 heavy metal monorail camera cheap from someone who hated it. I hated it in turn and finally sold it to someone who will eventually come to dislike it. On a studio stand it's very good...

Re: Window, Newstead Wharf.

You are right Mick:front and rear standards in opposite directions to the hard limit of the bellows. I initially set up too close and had to back off to avoid being reflected. And I even unknowingly split the bellows a little bit but with the focussing cloth over the bellows there was no visible lig...

Re: Nude in Tree

Walter, reminiscing about the Linhof Mirror Reflex TLR Attachment hints at your seniority. I bet no one in Australia bought one. I've only seen a picture of it on Google. I did use the Linhof Rapid Change Sliding Adapter for people photography ages ago. It had a little ground glass on one end and a ...

Re: Afternoon Beach, Nude

Relaxed, yes, but only for the sybarite on the sand catching the last afternoon rays. The photographer has climbed a rocky outcrop above the beach and is on tip-toes looking down on a high placed ground glass trying to focus and frame. Failed on the framing.That's why the lower left corner is burned...

Re: 2 new ambrotypes

Good ones Alex ! I saw these first on LFPF but these Australian pictures embellish this Australian site so sweetly, so appropriately. "Echos on Lake Echo " is glorious and you have spirits of the place collaborating generously with your old collodion. "Tunbridge Hills" is wild. N...

Re: Sunshine Beach, Evening.

thanks RoganJosh . Yes, it's one of those scenes where nothing happens unless there is a conscious effort at a formal composition. Putting the big rock at the bottom is easy, it's not going anywhere, but timing the little wave at the top merited a bit of attention. A cheap theory (maybe true?) is th...
