Large Format Portraits

This year I want to get back to 4x5 large format photography. I got my first 4x5 camera at the end of 2014 and since then time has passed in a blur. I had these 4x5 film holders loaded with film since the middle of 2017 I think but finally shot the film with Lindsay last week. I shot a 4x5 Polaroid first to test the light then shot some 4x5 Fomapan 100 sheet film (in the holders in the photo). I used the Sinar F2 as the Pacemaker Speedgraphic shutter is now sticking from lack of use I think.


I also have some interesting 4x5 stuff in the pipeline so watch this space! :) :)


The Polaroid was shot on expired Fuji FP-3000B B&W instant film rated at ISO 3200 so I shot it at f16. I then shot Fomapan 100 sheet film @100 @f4.5


4x5 camera - Sinar F2 monorail camera + Schneider Symmar-S 180mm f5.6 (but has f4.5 on aperture scale)


@f16 yet the shoulders are blurry.. this is why I love large format photography! :)
