Re: Negative Negatives!

It would be good to see the full area of the actual negatives including the rebate. Scanning, cropping, and flipping to positive can introduce defects or hide them. Assorted comments: Exposure maybe a bit heavy. I would expose Fomapan 100 at 1/8 sec at f16 on a light overcast day. Film may be fogged...

Re: Massive Snow Gum, Charlotte Pass

Well seen Mick . The Schneider Super Angulon 121mm f8 lens doesn't really cover 8"x10" but it does cover (just) the actual picture area which is a tad smaller. But fall-off and dark corners are something to always watch out for particularly in the rendition of skies. That's what the big br...

Re: Missing In Action

Walter, best wishes for a quick and strong recovery. It's a better world with you out there, at large, with your new Toyo camera earning its keep.

Re: Garage Portrait Session

Good portrait Mick under challenging circumstances. And thanks for all the technical detail that reinforces the inescapable principle that if you know what your doing you will get a more assured result. More assured, that is, than taking a lot of shots and picking the least worst one. That roller do...

Re: Zed Cells

Nice one Mick . It's a classic "white on white" that large format film accommodates so well. But it also illustrates the illusion of high -key pictures; there's no actual white except the tiny area of the tops of the Zed cells and no black except under the Zed cells. Everything else is gre...

Re: Rocks and Kelp, Wooli River.

Thanks Walter Glover and Mick Fagan . it's the Wooli River near Minnie Water in northern NSW. Modern (politically correct?) usage has it as the Wooli Wooli River. Photographing outdoors with a heavy-metal 8x10 studio monorail camera like the Plaubel Profia is a pleasure. All the camera movements are...

Re: Sunbakers, Noosa.

Thanks Walter Glover. The talent has it easy: a few relaxed poses. The photographer is lugging an 8x10 outfit uphill and setting the camera on steep ground; aerobic exercise indeed. And then there's waiting for that wave to break. Couldn't bear to leave that side of the picture empty.
