Selfie— PLUS Schneider Super Symmar XL 110mm on 10x8

Postby Walter Glover » 30 Jan 2021, 21:23

Late afternoon light casting long shadows teamed with the considerably wide 110mm wunderkind there was no alternative but to accept the reality of including the shadow and waving, darkslide in hand, to say 'Hi'!

A closer look at the lens' performance. The scan is kinda low resolution at 600 dpi - 4800 d is possible which would generatepi :

That's a pretty cheerful compromise if you had to use the SS XL110mm lens because there was room behind to back up. Schneider, in conservative mode, says the lens doesn't cover 8x10. Users say it covers with no room to move and with dark corners but, Walter, I see no dark corners in your picture. Did you have centre-dark filter on that lens?

Thamks Maris, There were actually dark corners in the neg but darkroom skills acquired. over years in commercial sttudios/darkrooms can be modified and applied when confined to the digitall darkroom. Accepting the anathema of the desktop wet lab is a bitter pill to swallow but I appease my better judgement by only doing what could be done in the real, traditional environment and tool kit
