Re: Watching TV

" It came with a work grafmatic too, and the idea of holding a large format rig with 6 shots ready to go is very appealing to me. " John, There was a time that I was a Grafmatic tragic, but it didn't last long. A guy who photographed the "Hindenburg" burning shot a load of 6 she...

Re: Blueys fall

"For what its worth, I looked up the Ilford temperature adjustment charts and a 12min development at 20C has a recommended time of just 8:15 at 24C (my water temp this morning). I developed for 10mins and called it done, and again was happy with the negative." Aaah, Silly me. I was thinki...

Re: Blueys fall

John, My imagination runs rampant with this new crop. I'd go so far as saying it's stunnning. Your picture not mine, but I'd crop the bottom to just include the arch of the twig at the bottom left before it dips onto the path. The two sections of past before the steps are a welcome mat to lure you i...

Re: Watching TV

Bravo John, A kiddie-pic only people with your closeness can even think of capturing. Good move acquiring the Graphic, a 'nifty fifty' equivalent, and quite lush skin tones. Given the FP shutter I foretel a wide aperture barrel mount aerial lens on the horizon. :D :D :D I also see more 4x5 eating in...

Re: Blueys fall

Presenting a Tableau...

Re: Blueys fall

Well, for a start welcome back John, You've been missing in action for quite a while, both here and on Flickr. War stories are always good, you're likely to find that in years to come every time you see that negative or print the story will come back to you. Not trying to teach grandma to suck eggs ...

Re: Photographer and Model, Alexandria Bay

The photographer also said that he didn't want to open a camera for loading and unloading, or for a lens change, on a sandy beach with a bit of breeze across it. Maris, There in lies the reason why I used 15 foot loads of 70 mm EPR in my Hasselblad and 220 in my Pentax 67 and Pentax 645 for years. ...
