Re: Plan View Of Landscaped Courtyard

Walter, still pretty impressive being from a roll film back, certainly not easy. My actual trade was gardener but in practice being a landscape gardener, in the true sense of the word. Therefore I invariably worked from landscape architecture plans almost every day. Sixties to mid seventies mainly. ...

Re: Plan View Of Landscaped Courtyard

That is pretty impressive, takes a bit to get one's head around the viewpoint, but once there, nice.

Re: Pandani leaves and Lichen

Maris, forgot to mention, I like the subject matter and how you depicted it.

Re: Pandani leaves and Lichen

For this I would use the film with the higher contrast, which hopefully also has enough inherent contrast to give this subject the appropriate contrast kick. As presented and I can assure you I'm only using the cheapest 40cm laptop computer I could find, nothing special but seems reasonably good wit...

Re: Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

Walter, you mentioning David Vestal brought back quite few memories of many magazine articles I somehow managed to read; usually in the local library as I couldn't afford American photographic magazines at the time. Quite the print worker and I clearly remember a mammoth testing program he did on B&...

Re: Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

John, I have a list of places, buildings and so on of what I would like to photograph and the rough time of the year or day when it should be pretty good to do so. It certainly helps to give oneself an incentive to get out there and expose some film. Mind you, I miss many of the times and places mai...

Re: Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

Walter, this is a low resolution version of a high resolution negative scan. Your hesitation in offering useful critique is certainly warranted. You are correct in that there are issues in sections of the shoulder of the curve, the question is whether or not this will be alright for the family owner...

Re: Gong Gong Church

Thanks Walter, timing as you mention, is often important with regard to recording outside objects. My first reaction when driving in was to do my usual 45º type of shot with the vestibule being reasonably prominent but with the long side of the church being the dominant feature as it had the light. ...

Gong Gong Church

I was travelling along in winter and just noticed this little church out of the corner of my eye, it was up a slight incline and only visible between a row of old conifer trees for about two road widths. Did a U turn and idled into the church yard and with fading light I quickly made an exposure. Du...

Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

I have an impending low light photographic foray happening next month, to ensure things would be alright, I undertook some tests. I will need to use my 65mm wide angle (4x5") lens, the light will be quite low, so reciprocity will come into it and evenness of the subject will be paramount. The s...
