Re: Facial Reconstruction

Walter, what an extraordinary reading: "two pen marks approximating pupils". I never thought of that most evocative implication. The truth is more prosaic. The "pupils" are actually little eye-holes cut out of the crepe bandage.

Re: Facial Reconstruction

Thanks Walter for your sympathetic analysis. Empathy was the main motivator for this picture. The brave sitter left her patient wrist band on but insisted on the bandage over the two blackest eyes in Australia; didn't want to look like a panda.

Re: Lake Cootharaba, Swings

Barry Kirsten , I've got it easy. Conventional panchromatic film in a large format size is remarkably uncritical about development; as long as it is enough. I continue to use the batch of Xtol I mixed back in 2007 that has been replenished ever since at the rate of 90ml per standard film. Xtol this...

Re: Lake Cootharaba, Swings

Thank you Walter Glover and Barry Kirsten . You are both right. The 8x10 Fomapan 200 negative exposed at EI = 100 has plenty of shadow detail in the peripheral vegetation but the highlights, and that nice cloud, really carry the picture. So the trees and bushes were dropped to silhouettes in printin...

Re: Working the subject; two views.

You are right Mick . The first one is better and has had the top cropped off it. It's more square than the 5x4 aspect ratio would imply. But I accepted the black triangle upper left to keep the line of white flashing upper right. Decisions, compromises, .... After I went back to the subject with the...

Re: Love, White Marble, Noosa Gardens

Thanks Mick . I was initially grabbed by the dark negative space enclosed by the two faces. See how easily and cheaply my eye is beguiled when I have a camera on a tripod and free (expired 08/2000) film in the holders. Incidentally this ancient batch of Tri-X Pan Professional is down to an EI speed ...
