Re: Watching TV

Totally engrossed in the television, nice catch. You must be close to the minimum distance, focus is good to boot. As for Grafmatic backs, I have two, mainly used on a converted Polaroid camera (Razzle), one works very well, the other not so great. I used them quite a lot for a couple of years with ...

Re: Photographer and Model, Alexandria Bay

The light is perfect, cloudy light.

Great detail in the sand and their different skin tones, which, if the light had more contrast, could have been a bit problematic for you.

Re: Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

Walter, I think their reciprocity chart is one of the best things for the film photographer to have in their arsenal, so easy. I have a friend who doesn't have access to the web or anything like that, he pretty much uses HP5+ in 35mm format. I gave him the formula for HP5+ in very large written form...

Re: Thredbo River

Interesting choice of lens there Walter, considering your requirements, it certainly makes sense. I don't know much about the 120mm version, I don't think I've ever seen one. I'm assuming it is running a Copal 0 shutter and 49mm filter, which if this is the case, it should be small enough not to get...

Re: Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

Well due to (almost) forseen conditions, the proposed gathering didn't take place, so no photographing the building. There is always next year..... :) Just as a matter of interest, I did a long exposure using FP4+ with a metered exposure of 8 seconds. Using the Ilford calculation factor from their c...

Re: Z Cell Batteries Again

Walter, you always cut straight to the core of the image, great post. In answer to your question(s) as there had been some additions, both actual and configuration wise, the insurance details needed to be adjusted. In the ensuing two years the addition of the aluminium holding frame, as well as the ...

Z Cell Batteries Again

Almost two years to the day, I have photographed a pair of flow batteries for the house. Although I took something I was reasonably happy with, in the back of my mind I just wasn't fully satisfied. In the ensuing two years the batteries have been moved very slightly to accommodate a heat pump compre...

Re: Thredbo River

Very nice Maris. The bleached looking fallen tree leads ones eye straight across the river to the line of light coloured Poplars, which in turn are balanced by the dark foliage of the tree on the opposing bank. As for modern wide angle and old wide angle, one word springs to mind, colour. I attended...

Re: Boreen Point, Shed Door

But it raises a conundrum for me, looking at your work and my own: why does a 300mm on 8x10 work so much better than a 150mm on 4x5? I think angle of view is one of the factors in this difference, which I have also experienced. The lens Maris has, is possibly the version with a 69º angle of view, w...

Re: Boreen Point, Shed Door

Maris, you certainly can pick things out of an ordinary subject. Quite nice rendering of a very weathered pair of doors, the rot setting in along the bottom will no doubt start eating the timber away in the future.

Perfect way to see something so pedestrian, yet at the same time see it differently.
