Re: Imagon Lens

Here's a picture of the Rodenstock Imagon 1:5.8 42cm with the Zettor shutter partially open. I've never seen another one like this and I suspect it is a custom engineered one-off.

Imagon Lens

I've just acquired a huge Rodenstock Imagon 1:5.8 F=42cm Tiefenbildner lens. It comes mounted in a Zettor leaf shutter with the shutter body itself about 18cm across. And it has the sieve diaphragms H 5.8 to 7.7, H 7.7 to 9.5, and H 9.5 to 11.5. It's supposed to be the Imagon intended for the 8x10 f...

Re: Old Weyba Bridge and Bird, Soft Focus.

Thanks Barry Kirsten . I reckon the subjects that go well with soft focus are much the same as suit pin-hole pictures: High contrast detail that's easily resolved by the optics. Light things against dark backgrounds. Close to even diffusion over the picture area to keep things coherent. Excessive co...

Re: Riverside Park, Noosaville.

Thanks Bazz8 and Walter Glover . That spotty foreground was the objective and some view camera "trickery" came in handy. The lens barely covers 8x10 so tilt the camera down (instead of using lens fall) and accept the trees will diverge at the top of the picture. No one notices? Then use ba...

Re: Spring Herbs, Silver Gull Lake.

Thanks Mick. This one turned out nice in spite of typical compromises that challenge large format work in the natural environment. There some out of focus stems in the foreground but they are dark not white and nobody sees them, do they? The "phantom stem" problem arises because the darn t...

Re: X Ray Film

andrewch59 is right. These latest photographs are really solid work. Forgive if you can a possibly unworthy thought on my part but I'm beginning to think that the technical limitations of X-ray film do not adequately repay your talent, vision, and energy. Shooting 8x10 is an effortfull high stakes c...

Re: KI Cape Willouby Cafe

What an excellent composition! Lots of quirky bits. And some wild photo-technology effects: dark-slide slot light leaks, film with edge fog (?), left handed photographer inserted film holder from the right ... intriguing and entertaining. Thanks for showing.
