Re: Tea Tree Bay #3

Barry, I have been sporadically looking for secondhand ones from Hoya, which are not cheap, these look quite interesting and the price is right, around $26.00 AUD delivered. Might have to see if I can allocate some time resources to that. Currently outfitting a new camping vehicle, which takes time,...

Re: Tea Tree Bay #3

Very nice Maris, as Barry mentions, you saw the vista and managed to record it for posterity. The falloff to the edges are really helped by the general lighting situation of the scene; you couldn't have ordered it better. I've wondered about using IR film in a view camera, but I only have an IR filt...

Re: Garage Portrait Session

Yes I do shop there and the last exhibition I saw there was some carbon printing from two or three people. One from the USA, one from Hawaii (I think) and a maybe a third person, but I cannot remember.

She has a very nice darkroom, obviously set up or teaching.

Mick.

Re: Garage Portrait Session

Barry, I just looked at your location, I'm not sure if they are open, but Gold Street Studios are sort of just up the road, maybe 35 minutes from your place tops. Their website is showing stock. I have the 50 sheet boxes, which are possibly works of art themselves; their presentation is superb. Mick.

Re: Kin Kin Bucolic

The dichotomy of lush verdant grass, requiring rain to exist which is usually brought on by trees evaporating water into the atmosphere.

Nice framing there Maris, the contour line of the water edge is very pleasing to the eye, or, as your apt title states; bucolic.

Re: Garage Portrait Session

Barry, where do I start and how do you explain the unexplaineable? In general I used FP4, then when it came out FP4+ as my regular film in 35mm land with HP5+ as my fast film. Once I discovered Fuji Neopan 400 I pretty much stopped using anything else and just used Neopan 400. Unbelievable film. I s...

Re: Backlit Poplars, Lake Jindabyne, Infrared

Quite surreal look there.

Yep, nothing succeeds better than going for broke and then you pull it off.

Very nice Maris.

Re: The Junction, Girraween National Park.

Ah, I see, so you are probably an autodidact with regard to your wordsmith capabilities. Good on you. My wife came from Germany and while her spoken English was quite good, her vocabulary was quite limited. However, over time her vocabulary grew and grew, to the point that it is now immense. The onl...

Re: The Junction, Girraween National Park.

Very nice Maris, "Placid Confluence", you do have a way with words. That image looks very familiar to me, I last visited that park in 1984, but being on a motorcycle I was running a 35mm Nikon. I'm almost certain I have a slide of that from what could be an almost identical position. I wou...

Re: Sun-bleached Stumps, Charlotte Pass.

Very nice one there Maris, as Barry said, they could be centuries old and that is before they died. 210mm is pretty tight, you must have used a bit of movement going on the top LH dark curve on the image. Always a trade off, wide angle and a smidgeon of movement or if not quite centred; don't ask ho...
