I tried my hand at wet mounting today and aside from a tonne of annoying little bubbles it went well. I think I get a little extra sharpness and a lot less dust.
This is a 4×5″ cropped to 2×5″
Here are a few shots, some with my new Razzle (the ones with very shallow DOF) and the others with the Ebony.
First time I’ve developed black & white myself in 14 years.
I ran out of coverage on the night scene, because I was testing my 120/5.6 Nikkor-AM macro for coverage. It is definitely a macro-only lens on 4×5.
The vignette on the waterfall shot are due to the hood I was using to shield from rain, frustrating.
Developed and scanned some more film today, some weird colour shifts going on, with the shot in the sand dunes it was pushed 2 stops (I forgot to compensate for the polariser when I shot it) and the others with crazy colours were really long exposures. At least the portraits came out nicely, except the one with the accordian player who moved out of the plane of focus just as I took the shot
Went and took a few shots in the sand dunes with Kat this afternoon. Mostly on large format, but here are a couple on tiny format :p
Here are some more shots (I will periodically increase the shots in this post so only one to start) with Velvia 50 on the Ebony 45s using a Nikkor 75-SW lens (and a shit tonne of filters).
As scanned, just resized for web. Enjoy my tripod legs (and even part of a shoe) in one of the shots.
