Re: Autumn, Lake Jindabyne, Infrared

A stunning image, Maris! I love IR film; it challenges our sense of reality but has its own reality which grabs our attention, as in your image here. Bravo!

Re: Garage Portrait Session

Hi Mick, thanks for the thought. I already get my stuff from Ellie, especially now she is carrying more stock. I usually wait until she has an exhibition I want to see and pick up some supplies at the same time. She's a lovely person and has a good little gallery. Worth a visit if you haven't been t...

Re: Saying hello

Hello Albert and welcome to the Forum. This is a quiet little place but inhabited by some very accomplished and supportive photographers. I'm sure you'll get a lot of help if you but ask. I know film photography can be a bit intimidating, especially when you jump into the deep end with a 4x5! I thin...

Re: Garage Portrait Session

Mick, thanks for your very detailed and informative reply. Yes those sample images are great! No other words needed. Very hard to get that detail, snap and glow, right through the tonal range. Very impressive. On your recommendation and the comments of others I've read there's no excuse for not tryi...

Re: Garage Portrait Session

That's a really nice image, Mick, and I note your favourable comments about the film. Can I ask you how it compares with the various Kodak and Ilford films? Is there a particular quality you like above the others? I'm thinking of ordering some Foma from Blanco, mainly on price. I've heard both posit...

Re: Missing In Action

Good on you, Walter. There will come a time when all of us will have to downsize both in what we use and what we'll be able to do. But as long as we still have the creative urge we'll derive great satisfaction from our art. Best wishes for the future.

Re: WTB 5x7 film holders, 80mm 5.6 el nikkor.

G'day Walter, great to hear from you, and I hope you're back to full strength. I've tried to contact you previously, without success. Yes, I agree about using a longer lens, but for me at the moment it's a matter of economics. I have the 135 El Nikkor I got from you, which is great for 6x9s which I ...

Re: Backlit Poplars, Lake Jindabyne, Infrared

What a fantastic effect, Maris. Who could have expected that? It's hard to find the right words to describe the effect, but blinding and eerie at the same time seem to fit. The effect is very appealing and certainly demands further contemplation.

WTB 5x7 film holders, 80mm 5.6 el nikkor.

I'm looking for 3 or 4 5x7 holders for a camera I'm building. Wooden ones OK, as long as they work. Genuine 5x7 thanks, not the European 'equivalent'. Also looking for a late model 80mm 5.6 El Nikkor enlarging lens as I want to re do some of my 6x6 negs. Why El Nikkor? Because my other enlarging len...

Re: Sun-bleached Stumps, Charlotte Pass.

A wonderful image, Maris. These beautiful old snow gums retain their dignity and beauty long into death. The wood has weathered to a hard sheen that's somewhat reflective and which you've captured beautifully. It's difficult to know the age of these trees at death without counting growth rings, but ...
