Re: Bunch o' Firsts...

Hi Robert - I was surprised when I first tried this lens on 8x10 years ago. More coverage than I expected, room for some rise and fall. And at portrait distances much more room. It's a nice lens for this. My experience through the years is that some people do well sitting for LF portraits, some don'...

Re: Bunch o' Firsts...

Thanks guys. I mounted the 210 Sironar-N this weekend so I have a legit shutter and more light to focus by. Still amazes me that it covers. Will be shooting portraits today if I have any say. I think, too, I'm going to give this another 20-30 seconds in the developer moving forward. Robert, I saw th...

Bunch o' Firsts...

...First shot in the Seneca project 8x10, first shot with this rehabbed holder, first shot adjusting to 18x24 cm with 8x10 gear, first shot on Fujifilm UM-MA mammography film, first try guessing at exposure, first time guessing at development in HC-110. So, through somewhat curious circumstances, I ...

Bluebirds back

Hi All - About a week ago I saw a pair of eastern bluebirds in the yard. Immediately put out the mealworm feeder. Yesterday was nice enough that I figured I'd empty the bluebird house Maddie and I made several years ago - nothing but sparrows for at least two years. Box wasn't empty more than 30 min...

Re: Something old...

Philip, my dad will be 80 this year, and that doesn't seem old to me anymore. FWIW, the drill is older than that (Goodell and Pratt no. 655). Dates to around 1926.

Re: CoronaVirus Pandemonium

Gov Wolf is expected to issue a statewide shelter-in-place order for PA today. We've mostly been doing that already for a week, though I was just released from work EOD last Thursday. Braedan started online classes today; Maddie starts next Monday. Learning curve for everyone, but the schools are pu...

Re: Spring Break

Thanks PF. Winnie was holding stock still for the longest time, and is usually shy when you point a camera at him, so I was hopeful. This was with the Petzval and a Packard; when the shutter slapped open he moved. Drat it all. With everything going on in the world, my son's school shut down for the ...
