Re: Tree detail

Tree details can be amazing.

Re: The bit I hate most..

Scratched negatives? I know what that feels like. Years ago I determined to master the shuffle method for doing stacks of sheet film. After a lot of diligent effort I could not get guaranteed scratch free results so I gave up. 8x10 is now one sheet face up in a tray but developed hot to save time. S...

Re: Jeff Carter on Artscape Tuesday ABC TV

Jeff came across to me as a gruff, worldly, boofy, compassionate and dedicated man; a human treasure that is now sadly no longer at large in the world. And the world is much poorer for it.

Re: Backpack?

Thank Guys, Maris if you can would it be possible to get a snap of your pack internals. The backs I got both are 80L front opening one is nice and deep which does fit the B&J810 but it has a bottom hatch so only the top 2/3 opens while technically this is good as it keeps the weight in the midd...

Re: Backpack?

I use a Aus Club front opening travel pack with a reasonable harness and waist belt to carry my 8x10 Tachihara. The travel pack is custom compartmented (by me) with foam rubber glued over plywood divisions. The camera wrapped in the focussing cloth goes in the bottom compartment and two lenses and a...

Re: Choice of Film. What do you shoot?

Film use? Fomapan 400 and Efke IR820 in recent times. When exposing 8x10 film for contact work the differences in tone, gradation, and sharpness, for various film stocks are negligible. I use the cheapest available. Pardon the question, but why do people shoot large format colour transparency film? ...

Re: Cedar Creek - Samford Valley.

Sometimes 617 format is perfect. It all stretched sideways. Creeks flow sideways as well. The two match so elegantly. Another theory about the unwelcoming attitudes of some deep forest denizens of the Samford Valley hinges on the possible presence of smokable herbs. You have courage to go in there. ...

Re: Woody Point Jetty - Redcliffe Peninsula.

Crikey, 617 is a tough format. A horizon line straight through the middle where theory says it should not go. A picture with things on the left but nothing to look at in the right hand half. This should not work. But it does! It still rewards looking.
