about a month ago i was at a little "get together". one of my friends sisters came down from davis to visit. right when she walked in the door, i told myself i was going to shoot her. a week ago she came back down to visit, so we had a 30 minute shoot with the 4x5. learning so much about this camera and the world of large format. its so beautiful. c and c welcomed and much appreciated.







thanks for looking, david!

David,

I like what you are after here. Definitely isn't a boring portrait. What do you feel the 4x5 gives you that you don't have while shooting digital? Just wanted to know your thoughts on the process. I see several photographers switching back to MF or LF lately. Thanks!

Its so nice when a negative reaches out and grabs you by the heart. I play with a post-WW2 Rolfix which gives me a 6x9 negative on 120 film.

The woman looks outstanding.

photoomaha...its the tilts shifts and swings that do it for me. i was having such a hard time with photography as a means of artistic ventilation. meaning... the digital camera was way to technological for me. i dont know how to explain it more than this...there is such an intimate feeling setting up the 4x5 and fixing the rails and bellows. kind of like painting...the brush and the hand share such a beautiful relationship. the brush strokes are a direct result of the hand. with 4x5 i feel like i have so much more control over the photo. theres something about the old style of portraits that is just absolutely poetic. paolo roversi is a perfect example. his images are probably my biggest inspiration. hopefully that helps some??

paolo really needs to learn a thing or two. his images are flat and shouldn't inspire anyone

Stupid Question: Why does it have a red hue?
Sorry, I don't know much about large format.

So, you've made a ton of work just to produce this uninspiring flat image in outrageous red? Why 4x5? Sorry for the rant, but truly for such a thing you should use a mobile phone. And what about emotion, expression, imagination? No nothing. Utterly boring stuff.

Yep, I'd agree with you, sir, you have your work cut out for you. Looks like a "mug shot." Uninspiring, to say the least.

BTW, if you cannot take the critique, then don't ask for it, let alone make wise-ass comments when you get what you've asked for.

There is no such thing as no emotion. Being emotionless is a state of emotic energy that meets a quantum euphoric wavelength of the universe.

Funny, you seem to be reacting with some emotion.

I can never understand hostility in a place where everyone shares the same passion.

Btw. I dig it.
