Haven’t blogged in a while, haven’t had the time to process film at all, or willingly to afford them lately. However that doesn’t mean I don’t shoot it here and there, I’ve been day dreaming about shooting the Rolleiflex too.
Any who, about this photo, I finally found a tripod (well, it’s a weird tripod possibly for some old 16mm movie cam) from thrift store big enough to hold the Calumet 4×5 that I probably had over a year, or two. Had a job for a portrait session so I bought that with as well. Got a Schneider on with Tri X Pan 320 and some strobes (that I purchased at a hospital parking lot, for real). Ah, right, I don’t have a 4×5 Scanner either so I had a shop scanning it. it’s probably even better if I can control that process as well. I think I developed it in XTOL, no, now I think about it, it must be Rodinal 1+50.

Good to see you back. Maybe it’ll inspire me to get back to some ‘real’ photography. Happy New Year to you and yours! Roger
Looking great man, glad to see your having a little time to process and shoot some film.
It’s a good portrait. Good to know you’re still doing good work on the cheap.
Nice and sharp! You gotta love those tones that seem like can only be provided by a big negative. For a while now I’ve been wanting to do some 4×5 portraits myself. Just need to find willing subjects who can sit still for a few seconds, LOL.
Glad to have you back!
Fantastic portrait !!
The control on lighting and depth of field is masterly!
