Re: Adding to the Inventory

Is there a tried and trusted method to figure out the hyperfocal distance on such cameras? I assume I would need to get out a tape measure and measure the distance between the film plane and lens plane or something along those lines? Welly, I was possibly in error suggesting that I set a hyperfocal...

Re: Welcome back (hopefully!) and my apologies!

Hi Welly,

Many thanks. And thanks especially for migrating to the new server. Everything is much more as one would expect.

Re: Choice of Film. What do you shoot?

Is there a name for a person who has little or no interest in shooting colour? I think it might be Ag NO3 (silver nitrate). When I did shoot colour film (commercially) I did use specific emulsions for specific subjects — all THREE back then: Kodak, Fuji and Agfa. My LF exploits are dedicated to B&am...

Re: Direct or Indirect Shifts?

It is my current goal to improve on this and start using tilts to my advantage and not have to keep shooting at f45+! Welly, At f/45 I dare say a great deal of the benefit of large format starts to blur thanks to diffraction. Swing and tilt are not all that hard to master - although you do need to ...

Re: Share your portfolios/galleries/flickr streams?

Nice to see some Scottish Island shots Welly. I only got to do Mull & Iona, I had wanted to get to the Orkneys but the weather closed in and the ferry service was stopped. lewis has always interested me.

Direct or Indirect Shifts?

I use a mixture of Direct and Indirect shifts (mainly rise and fall but sometimes lateral) depending on focal length, camera and surroundings. With ultra-wides and indoors I generally just raise or lower the lens using direct shift. It is seldom a huge shift with a lens shorter than 90 and rigidity ...

Re: Share your portfolios/galleries/flickr streams?

I am not sure how much of my DA gallery you can see without registering but I include the link, anyway.

By the way the entire collection could be considered NSFW.

The Wonder Of The Contact Print

The greatest motivation for me about 8x10 is the contact print. Devoid of Callier effect and shown exactly as seen and perceived, there is a purity and beauty to the contact print that can never be replicated by the enlargement or the ink-jet. My preferred paper for contact printing in recent years ...

Re: From a More Innocent Time

Strangely enough Welly, When I have been in England and see the Union Flag flying all over the place it has always struck me as a battle standard — which I guess it was. Our Australian flag, by comparison, does not have that impact (maybe because I am so used to it and it has become benign) but look...
