Re: Spaghetti Tree

They usually do look better in the flesh, sharper and with a better visual contrast. In 1975, which was nearing the end where we did glass plates at work, I had a go at coating plates myself. This is a similar process, but different process to what you do. I was struck with the ease of cleaning and ...

Re: Window, Newstead Wharf.

That is (was) rather expensive. I have a set of bag bellows for my Shen Hao, at the time Badger graphics in the USA had them listed for $100 USD, this was when the AUD was worth $1.02 USD. I bought them and added them to an order of three 100 sheet boxes of FP4+. Current price at Badger is is $212 U...

Re: Blue Pool

Yes, it was very dark, rain started as I was packing up and continued for the remainder of the day and all night; stopped around 0800 the next day.

Blue Pool

We camped here for a couple of days, every time I visited the water there were people running around, until the weather started to turn that is. Finally got what I was after. This is Blue Pool in Freestone Creek, which is north of Briagolong. Shen Hao HZX-IIA 4x5" wooden folder FP4+ 65mm lens, ...

Re: Window, Newstead Wharf.

Very nicely done Maris.

I presume when you mention extreme lateral shift, you possibly moved the front and rear standards in opposite directions? Whatever you did, the distortion in the glass is incredible, yet there is no distortion in the building.

Re: Afternoon Beach, Nude

Another relaxed exposure here. The same model as the tree? Doesn't matter, I like the long shadow. As for the fuzzy black section, I didn't notice it until you pointed it out.

I did note the height you had, big cameras and the iffy places we plonk them down, can be interesting.
