Snow Gums, yet again!

Postby Maris » 28 Jul 2017, 08:51

Broken Snow Gums, Charlotte Pass
Gelatin-silver photograph on Freestyle Private Reserve VC FB photographic paper, image size 24.7cm X 19.5cm, from a 8x10 Fomapan 200 negative exposed in a Tachihara 810HD triple extension field view camera fitted with a Schneider Super Angulon 121mm f8 lens.

The 121mm lens barely covers the 8x10 format but using back tilt instead of front tilt on the camera means a deep focus Scheimpflug effect can be achieved without running out of image circle.

Nice image, Maris, and beautifully demonstrates the value of rear tilt. "Snow Gums, yet again"... we never get tired of them.

Very nice image there Maris, I hadn't thought of rear tilt when using a very wide angle lens.

If the wind isn't too bad over the weekend, I may try something similar with my 65mm lens on 4x5" which just covers.
