Sunny Couch, Siesta
Gelatin-silver photograph on Fomabrom Variant 111 FB VC, image area 19.6cm X 24.7cm, from a Fomapan 200 negative exposed in a Tachihara 8x10 camera with a 400mm single meniscus lens set at f11.
The afternoon sun in winter is easy and pleasant to bask in. Less easy is the photographer's judgement on how much soft focus is too much. All the closely spaced stops, f8, f9, f10, and f11 yield surprisingly different renditions.
