Re: Bottle Jacks

What a wonderful use of the strange properties of light sensitive materials to make a photographic gem. I'll never look at bottle jacks the same again. Those square Kodak plates, were they the size intended for astronomical photography? I remember using square plates type 103a for stellar spectral c...

Re: 45 pinhole

Wow, that pinhole picture is sharp. The Sinar F2 lens and back standards must have been quite close together to get such optimum performance out of a 0.3mm pinhole. And the arrangement of the tree is just nice. Excellent prediction!

Re: Casuarina Grove, Soft Focus

Yes, smbooth , I knew you would spot the effect. It was done by combining maximum swing on the back of the camera with maximum opposite swing on the front. This created a plane of focus that receded diagonally from front left to rear right and grabbed those two key compositional elements. But there ...

Re: Rainwater Pools on Granite

No worries Walter. Getting the priorities right is the thing. When the storm comes the gear gets locked in the car and the photographer takes his chances in the cheap tent. If I've picked a good site and pitched the tent properly what happens next is out of my hands. Thus do I reassure myself.

Re: The Print is what matters

Wow, that Chromaluxe stuff is a spectacular evolutionary product in the long history of organising ingredients, piece by piece, into an arrangement that looks like a picture. It is a deep tradition that nearly all the great pictures that decorate and exalt the cultural history of the world are made ...

Re: The Print is what matters

Bazz8 is 100% right. The making of physical photographs generated out of light-sensitive materials on a stable paper base is both the ancient origin and enduring core of our art. This, in a world where nearly all pictures, if you cared to count them, are screen-lookers of one kind or another. In ho...
