Re: More Fujifilm ending

Yeah, right! I never used acros, but acros ii is expensive and (for me) only decent. I like 160ns in 120 though, especially for portraits, its a nice alternative to portra 160.

I will probably get some e6 and velvia 4x5.
I'd hate to day that I missed out on ever shooting an LF landscape on velvia!

Re: In Praise Of Minor White

Really cool that you share that experience :) A mate of mine makes her living shooting homes for magazines and books and I hope (when we can travel interstate again) to take my camera down to her and let her play with it to see what was possible with these cameras. For what its worth, the first came...

Re: Up close with one of my favourites

Thanks Mick! I'd not heard or thought of the Gestalt effect as it relates to photography, but of course it has a strong presence... interesting stuff! I'm keen to read more about these sorts of compositional impacts, even if I don't think of them explicitly while out shooting, I think it percolates ...

Re: In Praise Of Minor White

Absolutely sensational! When you mention "the brief" did you do this work always with film?
I'd not heard of Minor White before this.

Re: QANTAS Group Finance Flying Carpet

" The bonus gift when I saw the processed film was that the lines in the timber flooring, together with the perspective exaggeration of the 47 mm lens, looked reminiscent of comic book lines of velocity."

I agree with those lines of velocity! Especially to the right.

Up close with one of my favourites

I really, really like this building, and I think I'm going to spend some time taking a bunch of photos of it. I missed dead-level here by just a tiny bit, and the vertical lines are diverging as they rise (I think), but I like this pic, how it emphasizes the roof overhang and shows some of the compl...

Re: Super Sharp, Super Fine Grain Film & Soup

Not the same detail, but Steve O'nions has started to give it a whirl, too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBRoVRshGfM I still have two more rolls to go, and the adotech iv to dev. I've done a few enlargements with the first couple of rolls and there was no grain to focus when enlarging, the only th...

Re: Below cotter dam

Hi Mick, thanks for your note. When I mention zooming I'm probably talkiing about zooming in on an image once I've scanned it, looking around in the detail on a computer. I've just today ordered a 300mm lens (Apo Ronar) which I am looking forward to a lot. I think that 90, 135 and 300 should cover a...
